Building a brand new kitchen that feels there forever offers the best of both worlds: contemporary needs are met in a comfortable, timeless meeting room that’s suitable for a parade of guests. It is a kitchen that can grow and adapt to changing needs while still maintaining a warm and welcoming atmosphere – a balance that most people desire.
Fortunately, this look is called “timeless” for one reason: Even with the latest technology, it is easy to achieve. If you choose an efficient arrangement of high quality basics surrounded by plenty of storage space, this kitchen will go a long way.
Durable materials and established designs should form the foundation of this kitchen. Fortunately, you can look IKEA For everything you need to design one that can withstand years of wear and style.
The classic kitchen has to endure a lot, but you can still make room for timeless craft details that add warmth. Customization is key if you need durable worktops and cabinets but still want smart details.
“Even a traditional kitchen can look updated with the clever choice of colors,” says Viola Mushkudiani, Senior Interior Design Leader at IKEA. “Use lighter or more trendy colors for kitchen doors, walls and surfaces to achieve a transition look.”

Casual seating in counter height
If your kitchen has an island or breakfast bar, add casual seating that doesn’t take up too much space. To attempt stool made of powder-coated steel or solid wood that can be easily moved. Or a style with a classic silhouette and backrest that underlines the craft look.

Space and storage space tight? Try a Gate leg table with large leaves that fold out in both directions; When they are down, it becomes a thin console table with drawers. Folds or stackable chairs fits easily in the look and can hang on a hook or corral in a corner when not in use.
