How to Choose Cabinets for a Timeless Kitchen

Wanting a new kitchen with a style that is trending might seem like a good idea, but unless you are sure it is something you can live with, you might want to give it a pass and stick with a design for a timeless kitchen.

Often, people jump on a trend but do you really want your kitchen to be just like your neighbor’s? Not likely, and nor should you. You want your kitchen to be a reflection of your own style.

Building a Timeless Kitchen

You don’t have to completely buck trends, as long as they are functional and you like them. Consider mixing some aspect you like with what is currently hot with your own ideas.

Neutral Tones

Keep the bold colors to the accents and accessories. Rather than buy that hot pink stove and fridge, start with the towels. Otherwise, keep to calming colors that are easy to change.

Light browns, whites, and off-whites, natural wood, and natural materials for counters will endure the years of flashy trends. You can always change the color of cabinets, flooring, your walls but keep the basics, basic.

Make your personality shine with smaller accessories, like area rugs, dishes, and smaller decorative items that are easy to replace.

Quality Materials

When you have a solid foundation, the rest will be easy. Good quality wood, good countertops, and tiles will serve you well for many years. Choosing quality will cost more but it really does last longer so it saves you money down the road.

Easy to maintain floors, a good stone or quartz countertop and, good quality wood for the cabinets will outlive any trend that is taking over coffee table magazines anywhere.


Get quality cabinets that look great but will still look great in five or ten years. Don’t go to loud and brash colors and keep to a simple design that will work for you and your kitchen for many years to come.

Custom cabinets are recommended to utilize your space and make your kitchen work for you. Custom-built cabinets can be fit into any odd or awkward corner, nook, and cranny shaker. A plain, solid cabinet door adds a certain style and elegance to your kitchen. They serve their purpose and look great doing it.

Shaker cabinets are always going to be popular. A plain, solid cabinet door adds a certain style and elegance to your kitchen. They serve their purpose and look great doing it.

Get what you want and everything will fall into place. Secret drawers or slide-out racks help utilize the space and still add a fabulous sense of style and functionality.


You want your kitchen to suit your needs. It doesn’t matter how pretty it is if it is too much trouble to get around in. When choosing a design, think about what you will need in the future, not just now.

Will you be having children soon? Are you thinking about selling it or passing it on to your adult children? If you have mobility problems, are they getting better? Build the kitchen for you.

Clean lines over a busy design make people feel more relaxed and at home. You don’t want to complicate things, people don’t know where to look.
