Designing your kitchen isn’t always as easy as you may think that it is. There are so many styles, themes and colours out there to choose from that you can sometimes feel as if you simply don’t know which one is right for you and for your space.
Of course, many people turn to online blogs, magazines and even kitchen showrooms to help them to decide which way to turn. Great for inspiration, here you will often find the latest trends and styles that have risen in the world of kitchen design. However, the trouble with this is that as quickly as these trends grow, they also disappear.
This can mean that you are left with an out of date kitchen that doesn’t look quite as on trend as you may have hoped.
With this in mind, we have put together some of the touches that you can add to your kitchen that never go out of style. Which means that you can add in some other details that are more on trend and that are easier to change should trends move on.
Keep the main points simple
One of the best places to start when it comes to kitchen basics is with your worktops and cabinets. These form the main part of your kitchen and are the hardest (not to mention most expensive) to change. It is a good idea to keep the cabinets and worktops as simple and clean as possible. Keep them neutral, keep them unfussy and then you can use them as the perfect building block to help you to personalise your kitchen and make it as stylish as possible.
Choose neutral colours
There is nothing wrong with adding a spot of colour to your kitchen, in fact, it can really help to bring the entire room to life. That said, colours are easy to fall out of love with and can mean that you need to completely redecorate your kitchen. A much better approach is to choose neutral shades, these shades are not only going to stand the test of time, fashion wise, but they are easy to work with. You can change up your accessories and finishing touches in the space, which is the ideal way to add a touch of colour without worrying about when it comes to changing things.
Opt for natural materials
Wood is s a material that seems to never really go out of fashion when it comes to your kitchen, and with good reason. Not only is it warming, but it also is easy to keep clean and works with a variety of colours, prints and styles too. Using a natural material in your kitchen gives it a sense of timeless chic and, if you prefer the idea of having a more modern room, then you can always choose finishing details that are more modern.
The last thing that you are going to want when you have taken time and spent out money on your kitchen, is to find that you are not sure that the style you have chosen is right. So, why not pick a style that is timeless and then build the rest of the look from there?
