Kitchen design trends often come and go. With regrettable fashion trends, we often look at old pictures of ourselves wearing whatever was in-style at the time and think to ourselves “what was I thinking?” Unlike fashion, however, the style of our kitchen isn’t easily discarded like those padded blouses that were so popular back in the 1980s. Following a kitchen trend only to find out a few years later that it is completely out-of-style and outdated can be a huge downer. Here are a few tips on how to design a timeless, trend-proof kitchen.
Timeless Tip #1: Go All-White
You can never go wrong with going with an all-white kitchen. Choosing white walls, cabinetry and countertops is as popular now as it was 20 years ago. If you do not feel like completely redoing your kitchen every few years to keep it up to date, then this is the best way to go. You can go crazy with accessories and fixtures, but your main kitchen components should always be white.
Timeless Tip #2: Go With a Transitional Design
According to a recent survey conducted by the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA), transitional design has moved to the number one spot, replacing the long-reigning champ – traditional. But what exactly is transitional design? Simply put, it is combining modern and traditional elements to create a cohesive design. If you want your kitchen to look good decades after you remodel, ask your general contractor about going transitional.
Timeless Tip #3: Prioritize Storage
You may have to replace your old refrigerator and other appliances in favor of new ones with more functionality, but smart storage solutions never go out of style. These days, there are many clever solutions to solve storage problems, especially in smaller kitchens. When mulling over a kitchen design, be sure to use all the space available to maximize your kitchen’s functionality and storage capacity.
