4 Timeless Kitchen Colour Schemes

When designing a new kitchen, the last thing anyone wants is to spend all this time and money on a space that will need a major update as soon as interior design trends change. Suddenly those copper faucets are looking a little tacky, that bright red splashback is a little tired and that bright green benchtop that we just couldn’t live without is an absolute eye sore! Today we’re looking at a few different timeless kitchen colour schemes and styles that are sure to keep you happy for many years to come!

Select A Kitchen Design Theme

One way to ensure your new kitchen stands the test of time is to select a clear kitchen design theme or style for the space. A clear, defined theme that you absolutely LOVE will always be on trend and add to the timeless appeal of your home while also allowing you to easily sift through the many options available in kitchen cabinetry, benchtops and hardware as different design themes will lend themselves particularly well to certain colour schemes. A Hamptons kitchen design theme for example will often include white marble kitchen benchtops, shades of blue and either bright gold or chrome hardware.

A farmhouse sink is another fabulous way to create a timeless appeal in your new kitchen; both practical and luxurious!

Classic Black & White Kitchen Colour Schemes

A classic black and white kitchen design scheme will also withstand the test of time and best of all, can be designed in a way to suit all styles of interior. Sleek and smooth kitchen cabinetry and sharp, clean lines would effortlessly complement a modern or contemporary styled home while detailed shaker style cabinets paired with period style details (i.e. brass hardware, vintage themes appliances or accessories, etc.) will create a breath-taking look in a traditional or transitional styled interior design scheme.

Bold & Beautiful!

An all black kitchen design scheme is a fantastic way to ensure a timeless design; of course, it is important to pay close attention to the types of materials and finishes you select as an all black colour scheme can be a little unforgiving when it comes to fingerprints and marks. A semi gloss kitchen cabinet finish is often a great choice as are finger print resistant laminate options.
