When homeowners are considering renovations, it is always important that they consider three things:
- Will the renovation fit our families current and future needs?
- Is this design on the renovation universal? Will it appease future buyers if we consider selling the home?
- Does this renovation offer a good ROI? Can this renovation stand the test of time or is this trend one that will be outdated quickly?
Kitchen remodeling can be quite the venture both in time and resources. It is crucial that when meeting with a contractor regarding your new kitchen design that you have a meeting of the minds regarding different elements that are incorporated. For a kitchen design to work over time it must be function while combing trendy elements with elements that have proven to “age” well. True professionals will be able to blend elements that allow you to have the kitchen of your dreams today that will easily integrate updates and trends that come and go within the next ten to twenty years.
Elements That Withstand the Test of Time in Kitchen Design
Invest in Natural Elements
When planning your new kitchen consider adding in natural elements such as marble, hardwoods, brick, and stone. These are all components that make a design timeless and add to the aesthetic value of a space. These elements can be seen in kitchens and homes from the 70’s that can be used in current renovations without hassle in uniting them in the overall design.
Consciences contractors will always take into consideration the placement of the kitchen within the home to maximize the amount of natural light within the space. Kitchens that are bright and well light always appear cleaner and more inviting. Natural lighting can be combined with light fixtures within the kitchen to accentuate the space to give the allusion of openness. An open kitchen concept is one that has been and will remain popular throughout time.
In order to create a timeless design within your kitchen it is important to blend two elements: simplicity and function. Indoor plants have always been popular amongst homeowners. One way to incorporate this into the kitchen space in the form of an herb garden. This is a practical, functional way to bring greenery into the kitchen without it looking out of place.
The key element when it comes to any renovation in your home is ease of use. Simplicity is always in style. Homeowners want a space to be functional, stylish, and comfortable. The best feeling ever as a homeowner is to have guests walk into your home and feel content being there. This is what contractors aim to do in all of the renovations that they have the privilege of being a part of.
