What current popular design elements will last?

9 years ago
Does anyone have any opinions on current design elements that won't date (or won't date tragically)? Lots of people - including me - seem aware that there are certain very popular elements of design right now - granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, hardwood flooring, those elevated bowl glass sinks I see over and over in new bathrooms - does anyone have any feelings on what will and won't last (not just of these randomly listed items here, but anything you feel is very of-the-moment). I personally love the current minimalist kitchens, but it's such an extreme look it worries me to think in 25 years that same kitchen might have a flashing "Welcome to 2010" sign over it.

Thoughts? Have any of these concerns made it into your mind if you're renovating?

Ideabooks and photos welcome (for examples of looks you think will last)!
