16 May Kitchen Trends from Around the World
The Milan Furniture Fair has just finished another year of designer’s exhibiting their pieces in décor, technology and kitchens. The fair has a global influence with more than 70% of attendees visited from abroad. Read ahead to find out the prevailing trends in kitchens.
Out are the days of having modular kitchens and in are fully installed type kitchens. These kitchens are specially designed to suit each person’s requirements and offer a polished look to any kitchen.
Bright, vibrant colours will transform your kitchen look, breaking a lacklustre theme. Kettles, Pots and Mixers are at the top of colour appliances that will pop out from the rest of your kitchen. This trend helps to add personality and can be spread out throughout the home with throws and artwork.
Multi use items
Buying one item and being able to use it for a variety of functions is trending for those that want to save money and time. Apart from the kitchen bench top and a modular kitchen, appliances are your best friend when it comes to multi use. A newly released product named Chef Touch combines a steam over, vacuum cleaner and freezer for convenience.
Mix and Match
Colours and materials are being tested by mixing pieces that oddly work. Small changes in hardware, appliances and decorative pieces are all that is required to revamp your kitchen. Try teaming cool colours and industrial materials with timber to perfect this trend.
Combining the living room and the kitchen together is trending. Expanding boundaries of a typical kitchen, this design is becoming increasingly popular for open planned houses and great for entertaining. Create a look that is both aesthetically pleasing and practical for you.
Hide and Seek
Technology can feel omnipresent, but studies are finding that people do not want to feel like they are surrounded by technology and want to surround themselves with nature. Incorporating a suspended steel unit for a small vegetable garden is all the rage in Europe. Also incorporating wooden finishes adds a contemporary country style kitchen into your home. Adding a stone bench top with open and closed shelving will perfect the look.
