Home designs that stand the test of time

By Fifty @ Jan 28, 2016

While black stainless steel, mismatched cabinets and statement bathroom mirrors are some of the latest design trends, you don’t want to implement them into your home when they will be outdated a few years from now. That’s why we design homes that truly stand the test of time. When your home has a timeless design, it will be current even after you pay off your mortgage 30 or more years from now.

Here are some timeless designs that you should be aware of before you take the plunge and buy your home:

Open floor concept

Having an open floor concept from the kitchen, dining room and living room is a more recent design trend that is expected to stand the test of time because it allows for large spaces to entertain. You’ll also have plenty of room for your furniture, electronics, table and everything else.

Kitchen island

Do you think you’d ever want less counter space in your kitchen? Chances are most likely no and that’s why kitchen islands are expected to stay. Plus, many islands also work as a breakfast bar, which provides more versatility and value.

Gray walls

While gray walls are a fairly recent design trend, they have now become more of the norm. They also blend well with colors, according to Consumer Reports: “These ‘new neutrals’ look crisp and classic on their own and blend well with many other colors and materials, including stainless steel.”

Hardwood floors

No matter what the current trend in flooring is, hardwood floors have proven for decades to last as a preferred feature in a home. They also last a long time and can be easily paired with the rugs of your choosing, allowing for more options and color.

These four designs are some of many that will last for years into the future. Which one of the designs is your ultimate must-have? Are there any features that are missing from this list that are important to you? Leave a comment and let us know.
