A timeless kitchen is a dream for all practical folks who don’t want to compromise on design and aesthetics. Indeed, trends come and go, but a classic kitchen will always remain the same–beautiful, stylish, and functional. Elevate your kitchen with timeless elements and make it stand the test of time!
Use neutral colors
The color says a lot about the theme of a kitchen. While bold colors seem enticing at the moment, they’re not always sustainable for longer periods of time. On the other hand, neutral colors like white, cream, pale grey, earthy green, light blue, or beige, create a more individual look without affecting your kitchen’s long-term appearance.
Keep the lighting chic but practical
The perfect lighting will never go out of style. To keep in mind: kitchen lighting needs to be bold for practicality, yet can still switch up subtle when you want to create ambiance. For this, you need two types of lighting: shadow-free bright lighting for cooking and prep, and ambient lighting for when you need the space for unwinding and entertaining. Practical tip: use a central lighting source in combination with practical, space-saving wall lights and spotlights.
Incorporate contrasting wood
What is a great kitchen without wooden cabinets or wooden flooring? To offer variation, you can use both dark and natural wood for some of the key elements in the kitchen. For instance, using dark wood like walnut for your cabinets can serve as an accent against a light wooden flooring. It creates a modern feel, but with warmth and depth that is so timeless.
Use cabinet and drawer hardware elements that will never go out of style
The cabinets and drawers inside the kitchen are among the first elements you see at first glance. That’s why it’s important that they have a timeless vibe if your intention is longevity. One way to do this is to dress them up with classic hardware like gold pulls and brass knobs in classic minimalist shapes.
