Many of us spend a lot of time and money when we’re renovating or designing a kitchen, and the last thing you want is for your perfect kitchen to end up looking tired or dated in 10 years time. It may sound corny, but it really is true that trends may come and go, but the true style will always stand the test of time. If you’re on a mission to design a timeless kitchen that you’ll be able to enjoy for years to come, you’re in the right place. Today, we look at four expert tips for keeping your kitchen design scheme ‘transeasonal’, so read on to find out more!


1. Monochromatic Magic

When it comes to colour schemes, one can never go wrong with a monochromatic colour palette. There is something to be said about the elegance and simplicity of sticking to different shades of the same colour, and it is a fantastic way to avoid the mistake of hopping on current colour trends that are almost guaranteed to look out of fashion or possibly even tacky in a matter of just a few years. Choosing a monochromatic palette for your kitchen also ensures that all your fixtures and fittings remain timeless and are easily adaptable to any future design changes that you may implement.

For example, fixtures and fittings from Bourne Bathrooms and Kitchens that come in mainly white, black and stainless steel are ideal options for anyone who is looking to build a monochromatic kitchen scheme that exudes both timeless style and class. In order to ensure that your kitchen design has some depth to it, we always recommend using different shades of the same colour to create a harmonious and visually cohesive look.  If you’re a fan of colour, monochrome is still a fantastic option as it will give you the perfect backdrop for adding vibrancy and making colours pop with artwork and decor that is sure to stand out and garner all the attention it deserves!


2. Choose Time Honoured Materials

There are certain finishes and materials that never seem to go out of style, some of which include marble, glass, stainless steel and mid-toned wood. With this in mind, it is important to ensure that you pick wisely when choosing the finish and material for elements such as your countertop, backsplash, cabinetry and kitchen flooring. Natural materials such as stone and marble are always our first choice for countertops, as they don’t just look good but are also incredibly durable and guaranteed to last a lifetime.

When it comes to your cabinets and drawers, resist the urge to go too “modern” with stainless steel and instead opt for dark oak, cherry or maple wood cabinetry that never goes out of style. If a wooden finish isn’t quite your cup of tea, you can always choose to go the painted route which is as simple as slapping a coat of primer on your cabinets and then updating the colour with a shade of paint that matches the rest of your kitchen aesthetic.


3. Awe-Inspiring Appliances

Appliances are an often overlooked element of kitchen design, even though they have the potential to make or break the design scheme you are going for. When it comes to picking the perfect style of the appliance to match your kitchen decor, one of our favourite options is integrated appliances that are hidden seamlessly into the cabinetry. Trendy or retro appliances may look good in the here and now, but there is no guarantee that you’ll think the same way of them ten years down the road. However, there are a few exceptions to this rule that include timeless vintage/retro piecessuch as the iconic Retro Smeg fridge or a KitchenAid stand mixer in your shade of choice.


4. Focus On The Finishing Touches

Last but not least, it’s the small details that will truly make your kitchen sing. Accessories are a great way to keep your space looking clean and fresh, and the great thing is that you can always switch your decor up in accordance with current trends without having to re-renovate your entire kitchen. Decor such as fresh flowers is always a fantastic addition to any kitchen, along with gorgeous tableware, cheese boards, glassware, bar stools and artwork that allow you to channel your creativity and add a touch of personality to your kitchen space. If you really want to ensure that nothing goes out of style, the best advice we can give you is to avoid hopping on style or accessory trends in favour of more classic accessories that are guaranteed to stand the test of time!



Creating the ultimate transeasonal kitchen isn’t as intimidating or challenging as you may think. By simply sticking to timeless materials, appliances and decor, you can be sure that you’ll be as in love with your kitchen in 10 years as you are now!
