At Schatz Construction & Restoration, we understand the kitchen for what it has to offer. More than just a functional space, the kitchen represents the heart of the home– a place where stories are shared and traditions are made. These traditions can last generations, so invest in a timeless kitchen design that will be able to keep up! From your kitchen sink hardware finish to your walk-in kitchen storage options, the elements you choose in your kitchen remodel can work together to create a timeless kitchen design that will encourage connection and nourishment.
7 Timeless Kitchen Design Ideas for 2023 and Beyond
1. Neutral palettes set the stage in a timeless kitchen design.
We might not have always called them ochre and eggshell, but neutral color schemes have been around for a long time– and they’ve never gone out of style! When choosing paint shades for your kitchen remodel, opt for neutral colors. Try muted earthy tones, if you’re feeling adventurous. Think soft whites, warm grays, and dimensional creams that will establish a clean aesthetic and a warm, inviting ambiance. Bronzed beiges can be versatile too, setting the stage for fun additions of colorful personality or indulgent home decor trends.
2. Classic Shaker cabinets stand the test of time.
With their understated frame and simple panel design, Shaker cabinets effortlessly balance the classic with the contemporary. Taking inspiration from innovative early America, Shaker cabinets represent simplicity, functionality, and a standard of craftsmanship. In other words, Shaker cabinets have stood the test of time! If you want to bring a modern twist to your cabinets, you can create contrast by painting upper cabinets in one hue and lower cabinets in another.
3. Marble countertops incorporate luxury.
Marble countertops are a simple way to elevate your kitchen remodel with just a splash of elegance! For centuries now, the natural beauty of marble has been a symbol of luxury and indulgence. But the charm of marble countertops is not for everyone. Since marble is a porous material, spills very quickly turn to stains. Marble may be more high-maintenance, but some chefs love a kitchen that proudly bears its cooking history! If you don’t mind some wear and tear, marble countertops are perfect for grounding a modern kitchen.
4. The subway tile backsplash transports to a different time.
Subway tiles have been a kitchen staple for decades. Centuries, even! Favored in the Victorian era for being stain-resistant and easy to clean, it’s no wonder that subway tiles have become a go-to for kitchen backsplashes. While classic subway tiles are rectangular, the variety of tile backsplash has expanded over the years to encompass square tiles, glass tiles, tiles in a herringbone or geometric pattern, or even tiles set against colored grout. Subway tiles are timeless because they can transport you to any time– even the future.
5. Vintage-inspired fixtures add character and juxtaposition.
If your kitchen remodel is lacking character, consider adding vintage-inspired fixtures and hardware for juxtaposition. Think unfinished brass faucets, polished drawer pulls, and pendant lights– these elements bring a hint of nostalgia but have the potential to update an otherwise mundane design element.
6. Open shelving gives the impression of a gracious host.
Open shelving in your new kitchen not only provides functional storage but also creates the perfect opportunity to display cherished kitchen items that you’ve collected over time. While having your cups, mugs, bowls, and plates out in the open air demands a certain level of attention, open shelving forces you to prioritize quality, functionality, and personality in your pieces.
Curate a collection of kitchenware that reflects your personal cooking style, your family favorites, and your tradition of style. Plus, open shelving gives your visitors the impression of a gracious host without having to break out your mom’s cookie recipe.
7. Quality craftsmanship prioritizes attention to detail.
In its most literal sense, a “timeless” design refers to one that holds up over time. Quality craftsmanship is the most important element in bringing your timeless kitchen design to life! At Schatz, we prioritize attention to detail and high-quality, sustainable materials so that your kitchen remodel not only looks great but lasts for generations.
