Kitchen trends will come and go, but some things never go out of style. If you want a kitchen that will stand the test of time and still look as beautiful 20 years from now as it does today, consider incorporating one of these seven elements.

1. Shaker cabinets

These stile-and-rail cabinet doors instantly impart a classic look. Get them in white, gray, black, or even blue and they'll always fit right in.

2. Interesting neutrals

Sticking to relatively subdued colors will help your kitchen weather the tests of time, but this doesn't mean it has to be boring, or that white is your only option. Rustic wood is always a good idea.

3. A farmhouse sink

Farmhouse sinks aren't only popular because of Chip and Joanna Gaines. They've been a classic for a long time and we don't see that changing any time soon.

4. Marble countertops

Marble may be a bit on the pricey side, but it never goes out of style. You just need to know how to take care of it.

5. Glass door cabinets

This is a great way to visually open up your kitchen. If you have some dishes that you'd like to keep hidden, try a mix of glass-doored and traditional cabinets.

6. Beadboard detailing

Or beadboard all over. It's like the currently popular shiplap — only it has way more staying power.

7. Vintage appliances

Or new appliances that look vintage: all the charm of the old ones, with all the convenience of the new.
