Kitchen Remodeling: Creating a Timeless Space


Kitchen remodeling is a major undertaking, something you'll probably do only every decade or two, so it's important that the design you choose for your kitchen remodel is one that you'll be happy living with for years to come. So how do you create a space that's cutting edge, but will continue to feel fresh and timeless as the years go on? Here's our advice.

Make sure it suits your style.

One of the best ways to ensure you'll love your kitchen for decades is to put time and energy into a design you love, and one that suits the style of the rest of your home. That way, it will always feel like it belongs in your space.


Choose classic details.

While it's tempting to jump on the latest kitchen trend, like brass hardware, a subway tile backsplash, or industrial-style light fixtures, these details will instantly put a "2016" date stamp on your kitchen. If you're truly concerned with created a space that will stand the test of time, style-wise, opt instead for more traditional or classic finishes. Here's a quick list of kitchen design elements that will never go out of style.

Classic kitchen remodeling elements:

  • White cabinets
  • Shaker-style cabinetry
  • Polished nickel fixtures and finishes
  • Oil rubbed bronze fixtures and finishes
  • Simple, un-embellished bar pulls and knobs
  • Natural stones like marble and granite
  • Porcelain tile mosaics
  • Oak flooring
  • Farmhouse sinks

Invest in quality appliances.

Buying the best appliances you can afford will ensure your kitchen stays cutting-edge for years. Many high-end brands like Gaggenau, Wolf, and Miele have signature styles that rarely change, and technology that puts them years ahead of less expensive versions.
