If you're thinking about remodeling your home, you may be stuck trying to decide on designs.
After all, it’s not easy to know which designs will last the test of time and which will go down in history as passing fads. In the last decade alone, we've seen some new design trends emerge. Consider these kitchen design options with staying power.
1. White kitchens
Kitchen colors come and go, such as the harvest gold and avocado kitchens of the 70s. But when it comes to forever value, the white kitchen should be considered champion.
If you're ready for a major kitchen remodel and don't want to break the bank to accomplish your aesthetic, MyHome designer Tiffany Smolick recommends a classic white design. She loves white kitchens and considers them an everlasting design.
2. Stainless steel appliances
Stainless steel appliances have passed the test of time. People are always trying to find the next big trend in kitchen design, but no other appliance finish seems to have the look that works in such a wide variety of kitchens as stainless steel.
Stainless appliances have surpassed the trends through the years and are now the new standard in kitchen designs.
3. Glass-front cabinets
Glass-front cabinets are a must have for a small kitchen. They open up the look of your kitchen and make the space feel larger.
Glass-front cabinets give your kitchen the same feeling as open shelving. This light, open ambiance contributes to making your kitchen look timeless, making this style a forever trend.
4. Farmhouse sinks
Lately, farmhouse sinks have just as much popularity as glass-front cabinets. The apron-front farmhouse sink has been requested more and more in recent years. This type of sink gives a nostalgic look with a more modern feel.
Farmhouse sinks have been a popular look even before dishwashers were invented. These sinks were designed to provide the depth to avoid splashing, and they are wide enough to hold many dishes, pots and pans. Whether you choose a swankier stone or marble style or choose a more modest ceramic one, farmhouse sinks are definitely a forever trend in kitchen design.
5. Subway tiles
Subway tiles are universal and can fit in many different designs. They withstand the test of time for a few reasons:
Subway tiles are inexpensive
They look good with practically any other material
They pair well with different appliances and finishes
They can be arranged in interesting and unexpected ways
Subway tiles may be considered a millennial phenomenon, but this tile style is definitely a classic design. It's a non-intrusive look that was originally featured in the century homes and buildings of the past.
As you dream of your ideal kitchen, use these five designs to create a space you're sure to love for a long time.
