Create the bathroom or kitchen of your dreams with Ensuite Bath & Kitchen Showroom. Although many people appreciate the aesthetics of modern design trends, it is often a better idea to go for timeless looks that will not date the look of your home too soon. Here are some design tips that help you create a timeless look.

Trendy shapes and sizes

Trends in kitchens and bathrooms often appear in shapes. This is most common on tile designs for backsplashes and bathroom tub and shower enclosures. It is hard to determine what will last and what will become passé soon. However if you avoid distinct designs such as penny mosaics or extra long, rectangular tiles you will fare better. Classic tiles such as subway, brick and squares are not as risky. Size can date a backsplash just as much as shape. Mid-size items are your best bet as very small and very large sizes tend to be trend oriented.

Colour trends

Colors change almost annually so it can be tricky to tell which colors will last and which won’t. Even neutrals of today are different than neutrals of past decades. If you do want to add a trendier color to your kitchen or bathroom do so with paint and only on a small accent wall. This way you won’t be faced with the daunting task of tearing out an entire back splash or painting the entire room. Then you can use accents in accessories and soft finishes such as rugs, shower curtains, towels, drapes and even small appliances in the kitchen to add a punch of trendy colour here and there. These are not permanent and can easily be switched up without too much trouble.

Appliance trends

Appliances are very expensive and it is important to be cautious when you are choosing them. Avoid specialty colours and finishes and opt for clean simple lines that will not go out of style as quickly as more stylized designs. If you want to add a trendy touch, do so with small appliances such as microwaves, kettles, coffee machines and toaster ovens.

Cabinet and vanity trends

This is another design feature that is hard to call when it comes to trends. However there are some easier trends to spot such as high gloss finishes, overly detailed grains or design details. Opt for wood cabinets or vanities that will be easier to refinish or reface. You can then add a more on trend look with modern pulls.

Trend spotting isn’t always easy, but with a good designer you can create timeless kitchen and bathroom designs less likely to be too rich in fleeting styles that will date your home.
