Modern homeowners are looking less for fashionable homes and more for homes that convey pound for pound value. Styles may come and go, and anyone looking to be on the leading edge of the trend is often the first to be left behind when that trend passes by. You can be left with a home that appears to be dated and lacking in appeal. At the same time, you don’t want to get on another leading edge of yet another trend and be left looking shabby further down the line. This is why using durable classics in your home renovation is so important.
You Do You
You know what it’s like, those new jeans look fabulous on your best friend, but they would never look good on you. This is why it’s important to develop your own personal style, and stick with it comfortably as the years go by. Think of it as owning a classic blue blazer and being able to pair it with everything from your favorite Saturday jeans, to a classic bespoke shirt. Let’s take a look at a few classics that never go out of style.
- Stainless steel for everything from countertops and backsplashes to kitchen tables and staircase fittings, stainless steel has a timeless and classic style whether it is polished or brushed.
- Wood floors. There are enough realistic laminates out there that the herringbone floor you fell in love with can be yours. Wood floors are classic for a reason, and a frame for your most modern pieces to your classic club chair and ottoman.
- Carrera marble. No matter what anyone says, Carrera marble is still the premier material for kitchen countertops. Long wearing, classic, and beautiful they will be an investment that will last for years.
Trends come and go, and architectural fads fall in and out of style. You should do what feels comfortable for you, for your home and lifestyle.
