Classic Kitchen Looks That Won’t Date

Trends may come and go but if you are after a kitchen design that will stand the test of time, you can’t go past these classic looks.


From timber flooring to timber benchtops, tactile timber gives your kitchen a warm yet budget friendly look.  Wood grains will add texture to your design while stains and colours will help tie your kitchen together with the overall design of your home.

Keep It Light

Keeping your colour palette light and bright is key to a design that won’t date.  Opt for whites or cooler tones to give your design the impression of space and light.  Pair your neutral colour palette with a soft toned Caesarstone or Solid Surface benchtop to finish the look.

The Finishing Touches

It’s often the smaller details that can really make your kitchen sing.  Choose classic tapware with clean lines and simple design.  Whether you are a keen home cook or love to entertain, make sure your tapware will not only look good but will be able to withstand the wear and tear of your kitchen space.

Majestic Marble

Marble and soft grey veins are one on trend look that if used correctly, we believe will be popular for many years to come.  The key – opt for a subtle use of marble and be clever with your design.  We love this kitchen below where we have paired the benchtop and splashback together for maximum impact.  Best of all this marble inspired laminate look won’t break the bank!
