Step into the world of kitchen design as we reveal the secrets to creating a timeless culinary haven. From a captivating kitchen in Kochi, we bring you five essential tips to elevate an ordinary kitchen to an enduring masterpiece. While trends may come and go, the charm of a timeless kitchen remains.
We spoke to our Senior Stylist, Sunanda Pandey, and she has some great ideas you can follow. In fact, these hacks will help transform your kitchen interiors.
1. Add a Touch of Green
Elevate the beauty of your kitchen with the classic charm of green. With a few strategic touches, you can create a space that transcends trends and radiates enduring elegance.
Learn how to blend green elements effortlessly into your kitchen – from placing plants to adding subtle hints of green – all to create a style that never goes out of fashion and always feels charming.
2. Go for a Neutral Colour Palette
Neutrals like whites, creams, greys, and beiges offer a clean and sophisticated backdrop that remains appealing for years, making your kitchen a space that’s always in vogue.
In fact, a neutral colour scheme serves as a versatile canvas that effortlessly accommodates various design elements. Whether you want to update cabinet hardware, switch out decor, or introduce new materials, neutral tones provide a harmonious base that easily adapts to different styles, ensuring your kitchen remains timeless and fresh.
3. Add Pops of Colour With an Open Wall Shelf
Now you might wonder, what does an open wall shelf have to do with pops of colour? Well, you can use open wall shelves to display anything – have containers and units in colourful hues. In a neutral kitchen, those containers within open wall shelves will add a different dimension to your space.
4. Have a Layered Arrangement
How to keep your kitchen looking timeless on a day-to-day basis? How do kitchens stay trending and stylish even on days you have a lot of cooking to do?
The answer is to have a layered arrangement. As Livspace Senior Stylist, Sunanda, says, “One of the ‘go to’ styling tricks in the kitchen is to create a layered arrangement resting against a wall or your backsplash. For example, a chopping board or two, salt and pepper grinders, and smaller decor pieces such as canisters or small bowls instantly add style to your kitchen.”
How can you also design your kitchen in a way that it’s layered? Follow these 3 steps:
- Incorporate various textures to bring tactile richness. Combine smooth surfaces like glass or glossy tiles with tactile ones such as wood, stone, or textured ceramics. Incorporate a mix of matte and shiny finishes to create contrast and depth
- Select decor pieces with varying heights, textures, and shapes. Place decorative items on countertops, shelves, and even hanging from the ceiling, creating layers of interest that draw the eye
- Start by selecting a complementary colour palette. Choose a neutral base for walls, cabinets, and countertops, and then layer in subtle hues for accents like backsplashes, decor, and textiles
5. Prioritise a Functional Layout
When designing a timeless kitchen, one of the fundamental principles to adhere to is prioritising functionality and creating a well-organised layout. This aspect not only contributes to the practicality of the space, but also plays a significant role in maintaining the enduring appeal of your kitchen design.
So, a well-thought-out layout ensures that the kitchen operates seamlessly.
In fact, begin by envisioning a “work triangle” that connects the stove, sink, and refrigerator in an efficient arrangement. This classic concept minimises unnecessary steps and optimises workflow, making meal preparation and cooking a breeze. Adequate counter space around these key areas allows for easy ingredient prep, cooking, and plating, enhancing the kitchen’s overall efficiency.
