Remodeling your kitchen is exciting, but there’s also a lot to consider. Not only is a kitchen remodel an expensive project, but it involves altering a central room in your home. The last thing you want is to be unhappy with the completed design.
At Knight Remodeling, our goal is to help you create a timeless kitchen design that outlasts fads and continues to meet your needs for years to come. In other words, we design your space with the future in mind. Get our tips for creating a timeless kitchen design below!
Make It Functional
The kitchen is easily one of the hardest working rooms in your home, so it’s essential that it’s as functional as possible — and it all starts with the layout. When designing your kitchen, consider the kitchen triangle, which consists of the oven, fridge, and sink. These elements create the anchor from which the rest of your kitchen flows and help you establish a successful workflow that stands the test of time.
Trade Short-Lived Trends for Longevity
It’s easy to get caught up in all the new and exciting kitchen design trends. However, designing a timeless kitchen means making smart design choices. But, that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with it! You can easily add a new twist to timeless design elements, like installing a classic white subway tile in a herringbone pattern.
Choose High-Quality Materials
When selecting cabinetry, countertops, and the like, it’s important to invest in products that last. For example, custom cabinets are typically constructed with higher-quality materials and better craftsmanship than prefabricated options. On that same note, quartz is an excellent choice for countertops because it looks good and can withstand daily abuse from spills, food prep, hot pots and pans, and more. Investing in high-quality materials sometimes comes with a higher cost upfront but will save you from having to replace items just a few years down the road.
Give it Character
Creating a timeless kitchen design doesn’t have to be boring. There are many ways to infuse personality and character into your kitchen design, including your hardware and finishes. This part of kitchen design often gets overlooked, but the hardware and finishes you select play a significant role in tying everything together. Antique brass hardware and finishes add visual interest and warmth to dark cabinetry, while matte black finishes lend a modern touch to lighter-hued kitchens.
Build a Solid Foundation
With the correct foundational elements in place, keeping your kitchen up-to-date requires making style adjustments versus a full-scale renovation. Giving a timeless kitchen design a facelift is as simple as swapping out artwork, accessories, textiles, and other decorative pieces.
