WHAT IS A TIMELESS KITCHEN DESIGN?
A timeless kitchen meets the following standards: containing good bones, being functional with a good layout, and designing it to how you want it. In order to make a kitchen timeless, it is important to look at such things as flooring, countertops, cabinets, hardware, and backsplash.
WHAT MAKES A KITCHEN TIMELESS?
The first thing you need for your timeless kitchen design is good bones. A well-built and functional layout will make any space feel new again. Start by gutting the room then removing anything that doesn’t belong in a kitchen: appliances, cabinets, countertops–the works! As a homeowner, you probably create your own layout and as such do a pretty good job. Nonetheless, some traits set kitchens apart from one another and help them look “timeless”. But one crucial thing to do is choose a neutral style – the designer has a big role in this and it’s easy to make mistakes, but luckily that can be fixed. We advise you to pick a neutral background color and then add some colorful accents. While picking the right pieces and style your goal is to explore how styles differ in their ability to adapt, so that you can establish a style and have it last, because not all designs are created equal. A good example of this is taking a mid-century modern style with rustic accents and turning it into an industrial style. For the designers, consistency is key. The kitchen should have a mullet-style haircut and design with short front dynamics and long back mechanics. They call it a party upfront or not, they call it business front and party in the back. What this means is, you want your home to be consistent throughout so you don’t want your kitchen to deviate from the design style. Also, one thing to remember, you should always try to avoid mullet design when creating timeless designs for your kitchen.
WHERE SHOULD YOU START TO DESIGN?
First of all, you need to pick cabinets or countertops. It would be better to start with cabinetry and then countertops. Quite often, that could be done in one visit.
Once we’ve looked at cabinetry and come up with a preliminary design for the cabinet, we will immediately go out into our slab display area. In that first visit, we will have some ideas as to what might work together and some rough ideas of whether this is going to be the right track to follow for your budget.
HOW TO DESIGN A FUNCTIONAL KITCHEN
When it comes to kitchen design, one of the most important factors in deciding how functional you want your space to be. A whole-kitchen design focus is a new trend, one that features living in space rather than just for cooking and eating. To get a better design, you should plan the layout so that your kitchen is stylish. Updating your kitchen can help you save money and time in the long term. After a while, your kitchen will start to look dated and out of date. When you’re planning a kitchen remodeling project, consider the type, location, and size of your home. You may be tempted to jump into remodeling your kitchen without knowing what you want, but it is important to remember that the end goal of any project is happiness. And this happiness will come by getting both beauty and function at the same time.
DESIGN A TIMELESS KITCHEN WITH THESE TIPS: MIX AND MATCH COLORS, PATTERNS
If you’re designing your kitchen to be timeless, it’s important that you start with a good design. In order for this to work, designers play a critical role; they should avoid the common mistake of using only one color and tone. When a kitchen is too safe and doesn’t include any fun color or pattern, it can become boring. In order to create an enjoyable flow, it’s a good way to mix and match with some personality, just be brave and do not be afraid to put your soul in it. One of the best ways to create a timeless kitchen design is by expressing your personality through things such as fixtures and hardware. Also, the overall trend in modern kitchens is to create a mix of styles that work together well but also have their unique style. Other factors can also influence how your kitchen looks. Lighting, for example, is one of the easiest ways to change a space and make a design feel more personal. Floating shelves are another option that is simple to adapt in order to fit with your style.
KITCHEN AND BATH DESIGNERS: CREATIVE CUSTOMIZATION
One of the latest trends in home kitchen designs is a do-it-yourself, custom design. You can find YouTube videos for just about any skill you might need, such as building a reclaimed wood fireplace mantel or installing kitchen cabinets. Many believe that innovation in the home design industry has had a negative effect on kitchen and bath design – but we disagree. These platforms have increased the need for designers to create custom looks and feel for different users. When looking for a kitchen remodel, you’ll soon realize that there are many factors to take into account. When it comes to kitchen design trends, many people don’t know where to begin. However, a professional team will be aware of the functionality of your kitchen as well as its beauty. When considering kitchen design, the look is important but functionality should be most important. Businesses that focus on professional kitchen design, like us, can help you decide on the best functional layout for your home. While you are creating your new kitchen, after the design fact, you also need to be careful about choosing the right quality materials. Even if you’re not an interior design expert, it’s easy to tell the difference between a ready-made kitchen and one that was built by hand. All of these factors might make you feel overwhelmed but, with the right designer, you will be relaxed and guided through your kitchen remodeling project.
THE MOST COMMON TIMELESS KITCHEN STYLES
There are, of course, some styles that tend to not go out of date. As an example, there are different styles in design. Bohemian style is bohemian for short and can’t be mistaken because it has wild or exotic patterns. It’s not difficult to implement this style, and people usually call the art deco style theater era inspired. And glamours have a variety of shapes such as odd geometry. While you want your home to have a consistent style, some rooms such as living and dining areas can allow for more creativity. Building a timeless design starts with determining the function of the room which is best done by hiring good designers. When creating a timeless design of your kitchen, start with a solid, functional layout. Once you have that, make sure to consider the designer’s role in this as they have full control over the more fun aspects like different styles. For example, a good example of this is your bathroom. Guests will visit the restroom and then be surprised by how nice it looks when they come out. It’s an area to kind of play with some fun, different styles, paint colors, cool wall coverings, things like that. Then, on a final note; don’t forget that your personal style trumps all. As a homeowner, you have the final say of what type of kitchen you want. If you have a certain style and want to stick with that style, don’t feel like you have to sacrifice your own taste just because it’s trendy or not in fashion anymore, it’s your home, you need to love it. We still need to be functional, but your style is personal. We want to make sure that your home reflects who you are.
IT’S A TREND TO MIX & MATCH
A lot of them are popular today, they’re called transitional styles. Traditional-style kitchens are commonly referred to as transitional style, it’s kind of a uniquely American thing. Europe has not yet caught on to the popularity of the contemporary American style that is gaining ground in America. For example, in the farmhouse design, most farmhouses are transitional. But also, a farmhouse style can easily be turned into more industrial, rustic, or even French country styles. One of the benefits of transitional designs is that they don’t look too different from kitchens in previous decades. One thing you’ll notice in these different types is that they can all be easily integrated. Mid-century modern, for example, meshes nicely with Nordic and industrial styles. If you’re interested in a more contemporary kitchen, there are many great options. What contemporary isn’t the word, we like to avoid using that term contemporary style. Contemporary is a style of kitchen design that emphasizes simplicity and projects an image of being stylish.
TRADITIONAL BUT STILL TRENDY
To stay current and trendy, you do not have to follow every trend or design with the latest tips; you can stick to your roots while staying current. For instance, the medallion style is classic., It’s perfect for anyone who wants to stay traditional and trendy with their kitchens. The distressed wood, raised panel doors, natural stone backsplash, and ornate decorations on the counter all lend themselves to creating a traditional space that can be adapted to current trends. As we discussed, exchanging the components of a kitchen with matching materials can take it from one style to another. For example, you could change a kitchen to be more traditional or contemporary-traditional by simply changing the backsplash tile and lights. An example of a transitional kitchen design with raised panel doors could be an excellent match, but the homeowner used their own style throughout.
CUSTOMIZE YOUR KITCHEN WITH YOUR UNIQUE STYLE
One alternative to this is to use tile in a more personalized way. There are more tile options available today than there have ever been, and they’re not crazy expensive. There are all sorts of shapes and colors. If you’re looking at a 1000 square feet average kitchen, it’s 30 dollars which are not unattainable. But every three, four, or five years you want to change your kitchen to swap out a backsplash tile, probably not a huge deal and a great great way to update. The one thing we recommend for our clients that want a timeless kitchen with white or black shaker cabinets is to add a fun backsplash of tile. But if you’re using quartz or marble along with the backsplash, avoid cutouts for outlets. The power strips that go under your kitchen floor don’t require any penetrations. We love the ones on islands because they fit right underneath the countertop of an island and they are so trendy. We’ve recently added LED strip lighting around the perimeter of an island to create a well-lit space. We’ve started doing it with RGB strips, which are just fun and not any more expensive. There are many cost-effective ways to change the function and the vision of a kitchen using lighting.
WHAT TIME IT DOES TAKE TO UPDATE YOUR KITCHEN
There is no one correct answer to this question because kitchen renovations vary depending on many factors. The duration of your kitchen renovation project will be affected by various factors such as the size and scope of the upgrade. How long a remodeling project takes will depend on what you want to change and if you’re doing extensive renovations.
RENOVATION TIMELINES: KITCHEN CABINETS + FLOORING
Kitchen remodel projects can be a lot of fun, but they also come with some challenges. Kitchen renovation timelines are an important consideration for any homeowner embarking on the journey to update their kitchen. Kitchen cabinets and flooring both take time, so it’s important to plan and know what to expect before you get started.
As the first step, the waiting time on cabinetry can be long at six to eight weeks, meaning your kitchen will be under renovation for about six weeks in total. If you want us to start work on your floor, the wait is six weeks from the time we start until completion, and then eight weeks for our cabinetry before starting. Our design team doesn’t take your existing kitchen out until all of our cabinetry is in. Because we wouldn’t want to take up all of your kitchen space for the entire time. It typically takes about six weeks to fully renovate a kitchen, and we set it up in a separate section of your house. We bring in your refrigerator and the dining room table into that new area. Oftentimes your microwave goes on the table so that you’re still kind of operating in satellite space. We use pepper filters in your renovation to reduce the raw material dust, and we have a plastic wall guarding the construction area. Following these steps, your kitchen is ready to unpack and enjoy.
