How To: Timeless Kitchen Remodeling


One of the many concerns homeowners have when remodeling their kitchen is how long the style they choose will be in vogue. It’s not hard to see in kitchen that are a few decades old that styles and designs that were once popular and in are now considered tacky and out. Fortunately, timeless kitchen design is possible, and by using tried and true designs and components, you can ensure that your kitchen will age well even as styles come and go into vogue.

Timeless Kitchen Remodeling

Color – White

White is the ideal color for your kitchen. Think of that orange kitchen at your grandparents house that was last remodeled in the 70s. Strong colors might have been in then, but white has always been and will always be in. You really can’t go wrong with a white kitchen. White is also easier in terms of finding matching appliances, etc.

Flooring – Hardwood

Hardwood flooring is another kitchen component that just never goes out of style. Linoleum had its time, but people just love hardwood floors. Hardwood can stand up to the high volume of traffic in the kitchen and can be refinished between 10-12 times over the course of a 100-year lifespan to ensure it always looks its best.

Countertops – Marble

Marble countertops are another element of the timeless kitchen. Specifically, carrara marble which has been used for thousands of years in homes, according to House Logic. Marble isn’t the cheapest kind of countertop, but it’s classic looks and durability are well worth it to complete your timeless kitchen.

Cabinets – Shaker

Simple Shaker cabinets have a clean look that keeps your kitchen from looking too busy.

Backsplash – Subway Tiles

The 3×6 ceramic tiles have a classic look that has been cemented over a century of use in American kitchens. Go with white for a neutral look that complements the white marble countertops.
