It’s no mystery that the world of kitchen design is trend-driven, and what’s in style today may not always stand the test of time. While hot and trendy kitchen designs come and go, there are certain elements that you can incorporate into your kitchen that will give it a timeless look. Below are five kitchen design trends that will never go out of style.
1. Quartz Countertops
Perennially in demand, quartz countertops offer a unique shimmer and beautiful details that can add timeless character to any kitchen. Not only do quartz countertops complement a wide variety of kitchen styles, but they’re much easier to clean and maintain than their granite counterparts.
2. Great Lighting
A cleverly conceived lighting scheme that illuminates the most notable and used parts of the kitchen is worth its weight in gold – think under-cabinet lighting. And if you’re able to allow natural light into the kitchen via plenty of windows, that’s the best light source there is, but also consider adding accent and ambient lighting to add drama and dimension to the space.
3. Vintage Appliances
By their very nature, vintage appliances have a timeless appeal that transcends temporal trends. You can either shoot for authentic vintage finds that have been rehabbed, or go for new appliances that have a vintage aesthetic; that way, you can get the charming style of the old along with the handy technology of the new.
4. Glass-Front Cabinets
Glass-front cabinets are an enduring favorite, and they’re a fantastic way to create a more open, spacious look for your kitchen. Bear in mind that if you have certain dishes or other items that you’d prefer to stay hidden, you don’t have to outfit your entire kitchen in glass-front cabinets; you can mix it up a little bit by keeping solid doors on some of your cabinets, so that you will only highlight the items you want on display.
5. A Functional Layout
Functionality never goes out of style. The layout of your kitchen should provide for plenty of workspace and plenty of storage. If possible, add a counter-level island or chopping table to aid in the user-friendliness of the space.
