When it comes to new construction or remodeling projects, timeless finishes are always a great option. They provide classic looks that last for years to come and will never go out of style. But, how do you select timeless finishes for your projects? One way is to choose styles that are simple and adaptable. Simple designs with minimal embellishments will ensure your space looks good no matter the season or trend. A timeless finish should also be adaptable, allowing you to easily incorporate accessories and textures as tastes change over time.

Stick with neutral colors and materials. Think whites, creams, tans, grays, and accents of black — colors that will create a background for the rest of your design to build from. It’s also important to focus on the quality of materials. Durability is key in creating design elements that will last through multiple trends and decades. Investing in high-quality materials, such as wood flooring, stone, tile, custom cabinets, and quartz countertops, will ensure that your designs last. Additionally, these finishes should be versatile enough to easily shift with changing trends without becoming outdated. You can always use furniture and decor to get creative, or implement a trend you’ve been loving, while having the permanent fixtures in your home be timeless.

Selecting timeless finishes can be difficult, so working with an experienced interior designer will ensure all your design elements flow together!
