Yes, you've been dreaming about designing a sleek cooking space for years, but before you commit yourself to months of takeaways, there are a few things you need to think about before you get started.
Here's how to create a timeless kitchen that will stand the test of time with these few steps.
1. Paint in neutrals
Painting kitchens in neutral hues will help them stand the test of time. That doesn't mean you have to paint your kitchen all-white, though, you could try a light grey, and add texture and life with beautiful blooms and tiles.
2. Go for shaker cabinets
The clean-lined Shaker cabinets are a classic and will give a contemporary country look.
3. Create a classic look with marble countertops
Marble has timeless appeal. It will bring a classic touch to any décor, with the white stone making small spaces appear more open, and green shades adding freshness to homes.
4. Opt for a Butler sink
This classic sink design will give character and a timeless elegance to kitchens.
5. Let in the light with glass doors
Whether it's glass cabinet doors or ones that lead out into the garden, it's a great way to open up your kitchen and let the natural light bounce into the room.
