Renovating your kitchen can provide you with a lot of satisfaction, but you must make certain that the investment you make in your update is one that will give you a lasting and timeless style that will still feel up-to-date for years. It can be difficult to understand which features are ones that are lasting and which that are simply currently in fashion.
There are several ways that you can make certain that the renovations you choose will be ones that you can appreciate for decades.
Limit Your Color Palette to Less Than Three Colors
One mistake some people make is by using too many colors in their kitchen design. Doing this can make the room appear cluttered and can be distracting.
Limiting your chosen color palette to three or fewer colors will instead provide you with a timeless, coherent and classic look.
You Can Never Have Too Much Sink
There is a reason why so many people prefer deep and wide sinks. Smaller sinks are frustrating for people who enjoy cooking and who need to have the convenience of larger sinks for cleaning.
Choose oversized sinks for your kitchen update project, and you will appreciate your choice later. Sinks that are always in style are those that can be under mounted and that are very wide and deep. Making certain that your chosen faucets also have plenty of clearance and necks that are flexible is also a good choice.
Plenty of Storage
While a current fashion in kitchen storage is either forgoing upper cabinets or replacing them with shelves, we recommend you instead stick with traditional cabinets. Making sure that you choose cabinets made of high-quality wood and that you have a lot of storage space is also important for keeping your kitchen timeless in its appeal.
Picking the right backsplash for your kitchen can beautifully tie the room together. There are many different available backsplashes that you can choose, including marble, glass and classic tile.
Tiled backsplashes are very adaptable to your available space and are easy to clean with their glossy, polished surfaces. They can last for many decades, so it’s important to install them in neutral colors that will complement any decor that may be chosen for years.
Space to Work
Just like having plenty of cabinet space, making certain you have plenty of counter space on which to work is very important.
Not having enough counter space makes it difficult to cook. If your room is large enough, you may want to install a kitchen island so that you have even more space on which to work.
Choose Natural Stone Countertops
While natural stone countertops are an investment, they provide a beautiful appeal, terrific returns on investment and looks that will never go out of style. Natural stone countertops may include granite, marble, soapstone and others, and engineered stone countertops are an additional choice. Taking the time to understand how the different choices will complement your kitchen decor is important.
