How to Design a Timeless Kitchen

Article by Lanie Draper

Sometimes we need to change our surroundings and other times we just need to remodel our kitchens.

Whether it’s because of space, updates, or on a whim, kitchen updates can make a world of difference in how we feel about—and in—our homes. We also know change isn’t always easy.  We can easily be drawn to styles matching our mood at the moment, but leave us wondering why no one tried to stop us after painting a certain color or installing a ridiculously fancy (and undersized) sink. The good news is there is a way to create change that far outlasts moods and trends while accommodating functional needs.

Here are four ways to design a timeless kitchen:

1. Farmhouse Sink

Farmhouse sinks have been around for centuries. As time progresses, they seem to become even more desirable.  Maybe it’s because they instantly add classic charm to any space or because they’re ultra-convenient. Whatever the reason, we sure don’t mind their popularity! These deep basin sinks allow for a ton of extra cleaning (or storage :)) and come in a variety of designs. Select from round, oval, or rectangular shapes and sizes. No matter your taste, you’re sure to find one to suit your personal style and utility needs. Think they’re too country cottage for your taste? No problem! If your style swings more modern, opt for a stainless steel farmhouse sink.  Traditional? Try a copper one.

2. Kitchen Colors

Contrary to popular belief, neutral colors are not boring! Try selecting a subdued color palette when it comes to your cabinets. Need some inspiration? For examples of said grays, greens and blues, hop over to our Pinterest page.

3. Countertops

Counters are so important. Choosing countertops that accentuate your already stylish hardware or backsplash will be a bold statement in any kitchen. There have definitely been some crazy trends, but as far as looks go, the simpler the better. Remember, simple = timeless. With all the options readily available to you, there’s sure to be a material, design, and color to match your space. Need help picking the right countertops for your home? We can help you with that.

4. Glass Door Cabinets

Transparent cabinet doors appeal to the masses making them a great choice for any kitchen. They provide extra style by allowing you to showcase your most beautiful dishes.

Designing a timeless kitchen is the best advice we can offer anyone looking to update their cooking space. Why? Because kitchen remodels are expensive!

If you’re a trend chaser (nothing wrong with that), purchase items on point that can be changed out easily and affordably.
