Kitchen remodels can be costly, but oh-so-worth-it. Ditching a dated kitchen can be a cleansing experience. A timeless kitchen means there will be less remodels later and potentially only minor updates. Whenever you’re ready to go out with the old and in with the new, keep in mind these details to creating a timeless kitchen.
A kitchen is the heart of the home. You’ll make dinners together, catch up on family news and maybe even play a card game or two. It’s your place to congregate and connect. A timeless kitchen is a comfortable one. It’s up to you to decide what is comfortable for your family’s lifestyle, but flooring is one place to begin. Wood or tile in neutral colors and classic patterns can be paired with anything. This type of flooring creates a blank canvas for future updates, meaning you won’t likely have to change your flooring just because you updated your paint color.
During your remodel, stick to the classics when it comes to cabinets. Shaker-style doors in light wood tones, grays or white will look good for many years to come and are easy to pair with colorful accents that can be switched out when your taste changes.
Stone countertops never go out of style, but color does. Black granite is out. Lighter colors like Carrara marble with gray veins have been a kitchen staple for decades, and will likely remain a staple for many years to come.
While flooring, cabinets and countertops are the major elements of a kitchen remodel to be handled by the pros, other items are easier to update when you feel the need for a change. Stainless steel appliances are a timeless choice, but easy to change when you have a whim. Lighting is another design element that is less intensive to replace, as is paint color. (However, we do recommend you hire a pro to handle lighting changes.)
