The average homeowner in Indiana does not want to remodel their kitchen or bathroom every year. Typically, homeowners want to complete one or two major remodels, and then focus on smaller projects to further customize their home. However, when making major design decisions, it can be hard to know how to make choices that will pay off long term. Today on the blog, our team at Incredible Kitchens and Baths is discussing the benefits of avoiding major trends, and how to make timeless design choices.
Timeless Over Trendy
Just like fashion, interior design trends come and go quickly through the years. However, while it’s fairly simple to give your wardrobe an annual sprucing, it’s not very realistic to remodel your home every year. So, when we work with a new client, we encourage them to make timeless design choices and avoid major trends. This will help you save money, it’s more environmentally friendly, and you won’t have to worry about your brand new kitchen going out of style as soon as you finish it.
The best way to make timeless design choices during your remodel is to focus on the big-ticket items. If you want to incorporate trendy items in your design, use things like rugs, window treatments, or even wall color that can be easily changed to follow the next trend. However, with your bigger, more permanent items, choose elements that never go out of style. Some examples of classic elements are hardwood floors, built-in shelving, marble countertops, and stainless steel appliances.
Consider Your Home’s Future
Finally, as you set out to complete your kitchen or bathroom remodel, remember to consider the future of your home. Ask yourself if this is your “forever home”, or if you see yourself growing out of it in a few years. If you plan on listing your home in the next couple of years, you should think of potential buyers during your remodel as well as yourself. Timeless design choices are more likely to appeal to buyers than overly trendy design elements that may be hard to change.
