Timeless: not affected by the passage of time or changes in fashion.
Kitchen designs and trends come and go, what might be ‘in’ one year, is very much ‘out’ the next.
Whilst personal taste is of course an element at play, by avoiding the status quo and creating something that’s timeless, you eliminate the risk of your kitchen looking dated before long; ensuring your space can be enjoyed for generations.
At Bath Kitchen Company, many of the kitchens we’ve designed over the past 30 years have remained fundamentally the same to this day.
If you’re in the planning stages of your next kitchen, take a look at our key considerations when designing a kitchen that is timeless.
Invest in High Quality Materials
Low quality materials & appliances show their age quicker and are much more prone to breaking. Always invest in good quality materials for your flooring, worktops, cabinetry and other elements – these create a strong backbone for your kitchen that will last many years to come.
At Bath Kitchen Company, we handpick our materials and appliances from a selection of leading brands and manufacturers that we feel share the same passion as we do for creating the perfect kitchen.
Consider Shaker Cabinetry
With history dating back to the 1700s, shaker style cabinetry is an element of the kitchen that’s truly stood the test of time.
Perhaps the most fundamental reason shaker cabinetry has stood the test of time is due to its quality, all shaker furniture is built to last and has a clear purpose in the room it belongs to.
Another reason for it’s continued popularity is likely the understated aspect of its design, giving it a quiet sense of belonging in any kitchen without dominating the space.
Light Your Space Properly
Lighting is a fundamental part of kitchen design which shouldn’t be overlooked.
The allure of any kitchen can be lost through poor lighting, resulting in dark and dingy spaces that lack the warm inviting feeling a kitchen should provoke.
Striking the right balance between functionally bright yet aesthetically gentle is often achieved by utilising different styles of light throughout the kitchen, with many opting brighter lights in work areas and cooler lighting over dining and socialising areas.
Create Something Unique to Your Taste
Regardless of the considerations we’ve listed here, if a kitchen is designed to your own taste and not in line with ‘what’s popular’ – it will be truly timeless to you and stand the test of time.
Where commercially driven outfits use showrooms and sales teams to push the latest trend, collection or range onto customers, going bespoke is undisputedly the best way to create a personal and timeless look in your kitchen.
At Bath Kitchen Company, we work with our customers closely when designing their dream kitchen – combining their big ideas with our craftsmanship and experience to create a space that lasts a lifetime.
