Trends are great, but when it comes to remodeling a kitchen, you want to ensure the trend you choose is timeless for an optimal return-on-investment. Compared to trendy designs, timeless designs mean you won’t regret the changes you made to your kitchen in the next few years or when you decide to move.
That being said, here are a few kitchen trends that are not only popular this year but are here to stay for the long run.
Have you ever walked into a kitchen with ceiling treatments and thought to yourself, “This kitchen has too much character”? Yeah, we haven’t either.
Ceiling treatments add a hint of vintage character to modern kitchens without having to alter your countertops or cabinets. Additionally, ceiling treatments provide texture and complement that of your kitchen’s workspace or island below.
In today’s modern kitchens, you’ll often see appliances sticking out like a sore thumb. This can be a big eyesore in smaller kitchens when there’s only so much space for you to work with.
Integrated appliances that are skillfully built into your kitchen’s paneling or built-ins are easily a timeless design trend because of the room they provide. Extra counter space with hidden appliances won’t go out of style anytime soon.
Big sinks are a great kitchen feature that most homeowners love. Think of how many times a couple on HGTV has said they want a double kitchen sink.
Big kitchen sinks give enough room to rinse off fruits and vegetables, defrost meats, and clean the dishes without having to worry about smacking your elbow into the refrigerator.
What’s more, this isn’t just a design feature only cooks will love. Sure, big sinks are an added bonus for the chef who loves to make the most out of their kitchen. But it’s also a feature that even those only capable of making ramen noodles on the stove can appreciate because of its enormous practicality.
