These Timeless Classics will never go out of Style

Interior design trends are constantly changing and evolving throughout the years, this can mean that if something is in style for one year it could be out of fashion 12 months later. When you subscribe or pick up those glossy magazines from the shop you can instantly have your head turned by the kitchens that are on-trend. However, we understand that a new kitchen is a big investment and you want the design to stand the test of time.

In this blog, we will talk about some of the style choices that have stayed a firm favourite within our kitchens as well as design ideas that will never go out of style.

Kitchen islands

The trend for kitchen islands isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. If you opt for a central island it helps to create a focal point and allows you to design the kitchen around it. The island is a functional part of the kitchen and it can include the hob, sink, and a form of seating such as a breakfast bar or banquette. You can implement lots of storage too and not to mention extra worktop space.

Glass-fronted cabinetry

Glass-fronted cabinetry has been popular in many of our client’s kitchens offering a timeless design. This certainly will never go out of style and allows you to mix up a solid wood design. Keep your shelves neat and tidy showcasing those beautiful decorative items and add form and function to the design.

You can also opt for frosted glass if you have concerns about having everything on show. This adds a level of privacy too but still creates a stunning visual effect, especially if the right amount of light is given.

Quartz and granite worktops

Quartz and granite worktops in a kitchen are extremely versatile and are certain to remain in fashion for years to come. They have many colours, styles and designs available, so if you wanted to update other parts of your kitchen they will stay on-trend.

Quartz is one of the best materials for a kitchen worktop, from its style, performance, and cost, they deliver a premium look and feel but offer durable low maintenance and long-lasting properties.

Granite is a durable and long-lasting stone that is a fantastic product to use as a countertop in a kitchen. Each slab is unique due to the material being 100% natural. It is mainly made from minerals, quartz, and feldspar to create the beautiful stone.

Traditional mantels

Mantels are not only an addition to the handmade kitchen but an extremely practical feature to create additional storage. It adds an instant level of gorgeousness that will never go out of style. By having this feature above the oven or hob it will draw an eye to that area of the kitchen while boosting the overall design of the room. Don’t date the design, just go simple and elegant!

Banquette seating

Incorporating different seating options in the kitchen is a great idea for creating a multifunctional space. Banquette seating is a fairly recent trend and we think it’s a feature that is here to stay. More of our clients are opting for this seating arrangement in different parts of their hub of the home.

Banquette seating is not only totally appealing but is extremely practical, especially in a family kitchen adding that level of luxury too. This type of seating has to be incorporated into the overall design and can’t be an afterthought, also where space is at a premium.

Due to the recent pandemic, we are expecting to see more customers opt for banquette seating, with families realizing they need somewhere to eat casual meals together and have a more formal dining area elsewhere.

Take good advice from the kitchen designer and talk about tried and test styles rather than current fads. Contact us today for more info on a timeless bespoke handmade kitchen. One of these kitchens will add an instant wow factor for years to come – we look forward to hearing from you.
