If you are in the process of remodeling your kitchen, chances are you are hoping that this one will be the last one you have to do for at least a few years. Renovations, and even less involved remodeling projects require an investment of both your time, and finances. Doing it right the first time is at the top of your priority list.
Your kitchen is a hub of activity. You want it to be as inviting as it is stylish and functional. In order to achieve this look you will want to avoid potentially fleeting fads and instead focus on timeless trends. The following are just a few of The Wright Kitchen’s favourite timeless kitchen trends.
Classic Shaker Cabinets
A shaker cabinet style imparts a look of modern traditionalism that will never go out of style. Shaker style cabinets are best, and most reliable when they are made from quality materials. Most of the time, shaker style cabinets are painted a white, or off-white colour that is guaranteed to go with nearly every colour scheme. Over time, these cabinets can be refinished and repainted to look fresh, and brand new! Quality materials and classic design can be combined with more fleeting trends to keep your kitchen your favorite room in the house.
Keep It Neutral
Neutral doesn’t mean boring. It means versatile, classic, timeless. Neutral also doesn’t mean beige. Think instead of soft greys, charcoal, slate, even navy. These shades effortlessly combine with a huge variety of colour schemes to look clean, and well put together. When choosing a colour, consider choosing an “off the rack” colour that you can easily match in the future.
Opt For Marble Countertops
Nothing says classic like marble. Not only does marble stand the test of time (take a walk around a museum!) but it also looks extremely sophisticated. It is going to be quite the investment, so take your time choosing a marble countertop – you’re going to be washing those countertops for years to come. Depending on your style preferences a predominantly white, or black countertop is the norm when it comes to marble. A white countertop will add levity and brightness to a space of any size, meanwhile black lends an air of classic modernity to your kitchen.
The Farmhouse Sink
A farmhouse sink is as functional and gorgeous as it is timeless. There was a time, however, when farmhouse sinks were not chosen for their good looks, but instead out of necessity. Before indoor plumbing, water had to be retrieved from lakes, rivers and wells to get dinner ready, wash dishes, and generally keep things clean. A big sink was the best way to get the job done. Gradually, these same sinks were adopted into houses with plumbing, and became a favourite among housewives for their ergonomic, functional design. Today farmhouse sinks are a focal point in their own right.
