Despite faddish trends, there are some elements in design which have remained constant throughout time.
First seen as early as in the 1920s, these kitchen design styles are used even today in most homes around America. And you can be rest assured that if you implement them with the onus on aesthetic functionality, your kitchen will remain timeless for the next few years if not decades.
Here are five such timeless ideas for your next Kitchen remodel project.
White is eternal
For time immemorial, white has been associated with purity, perfection and new beginnings. When used in the kitchen, it allows for a bright and peaceful working space. Also, if you are constrained for space, it is one of the easiest ways to make your kitchen look larger.
If you are a stickler for cleanliness, then White is your best friend. You will find a multitude of appliances and accessories that can blend with a White Palette. You can even use spray paint on your cabinet for a contemporary and fresh look.
It is no surprise that White always tops the National Kitchen and Bath Association’s annual survey of popular colours to be used in the Kitchen.
Choose White as the dominant colour in your kitchen redesign plan.
Like White is to the walls, Marble is to the countertop. Carrara marble countertops are the most widely used ones in kitchens around the world. It may be pricier than some of the other options available now. But if you think long term, there is nothing more economical and low on maintenance. Carrara Marble is bright, easy to clean and provides an ideal surface for cooking (ask baking enthusiasts about it)
It may get etched and stained occasionally. But the ‘etches’ blend perfectly with the deep grey veins on the stone providing a near perfect worn look.
Think Shaker cabinets and almost instantly, you picture tastefully done Kitchen décor. This timeless classic has been part of American styled homes for decades. They can blend with almost any kitchen renovation design and the simple but elegant frame and panel design allows easy maintenance. Shaker cabinets will not look dated even after a few years.
You cannot go wrong with hardwood flooring. It lasts for decades, is eco-friendly, is easy to clean, is hygienic and provides excellent aesthetics to your home. And even though it has been around forever, wood flooring is rising in popularity. Experts suggest that homes with wooden flooring stand a better chance at being sold than homes with other types of flooring. If you are concerned about scratches or damage, then a simple sand and seal will make it look as good as new.
Subway Tiled Backsplash
The minimalist yet classic subway tiles are the easiest way to add a timeless design aspect to your kitchen remodel. Most people experiment with colours and patterns on the backsplash. But the neutral hues of these tiles will blend easily with any kitchen reonvation design. Subway tiles are low on cost and maintenance too.
