The number one kitchen design trend to follow to achieve a classic look is choosing white cabinetry.
White cabinetry is an established tradition dating back to early New England and Cape Cod.
You can’t go wrong with white cabinets.
They are beautiful, they give an impression of space, and they will absolutely never go out of style.

Everybody loves hardwood floors.
They are a classic feature for any home.
Many colonial-era homes still boast original hardwood floors that have been sanded and re-finished countless times over the years.
If you want to build a kitchen that will stand the test of time and changing tastes, consider investing in hardwood floors!
PRO-TIP: To preserve your freshly installed or refinished hardwood floors consider laying down a stain-proof synthetic or natural fiber rug in your kitchen.
Quartz is a relatively new material on the market, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be timeless!
Because it’s a manufactured stone, there are a wide range of colors to choose from, and the finished stone is both luxurious and classic.
Quartz is non-porous, so it resists staining much better than granite, marble or concrete not to mention it won’t chip or crack as easily! It’s also less expensive. Win, win, win.
PRO-TIP: Quartz can cost anywhere from $30 to $150 per square foot depending how high-end you go. Shop around and ask an expert if you’re getting a good deal!
Shaker cabinet doors date back to the Shaker communities of the early 1800s.
This flat-paneled design is simple and functional and is a popular cabinet style choice to this day.
Dovetail drawers and stile-and-rail cabinet doors are an extension of this minimalistic but highly utilitarian design trend.
Shaker cabinets have been popular for over 200 years and can safely be dubbed “timeless”.
PRO-TIP: Opt for a pearl white shaker from for a kitchen that will truly stand the test of time.
Open concept is well-established as the preferred layout for homes these days.
To ensure the open-concept feel of your home is maximized, opt for a single-level island that will allow light to stream through the space seamlessly.
A single-level island is a functional and beautiful feature for any kitchen!
PRO-TIP: If you are on a tight budget, consider repurposing an old piece of furniture like a dresser or a sideboard as an island. This will add loads of character to your space.
