I realized that I am spending more and more time in the kitchen making food, eating, planning grocery lists and opening the fridge door far too many times in the evening… Kitchen will be more and more THE place at our homes where we all spend our time at home. So naturally we want to make it as flexible, systematic and spacious as possible.
I visited the England biggest kitchen fair. Kitchen improvements will make future kitchens so cozy and flexible, that you will want to spend more time there
The most interesting ideas in the kitchen fair:
Lights– well, there can’t be too much light in a kitchen. LED- lights have been integrated everywhere. To worktops, overhead cabinets and drawers. Open a drawer, the light automatically illuminates so you´ll see better what you are looking for. Led-lights with this kind of integration, bring more posture and high class look in to the kitchen.
Integration- almost every kitchen appliance can be integrated to the kitchen, so you´ll get more working space on your worktop or for appliances. Even knives, electricity, trash can, spices and even a TV is possible to integrate to a worktop. Visit manufacturer @ http://the-sbox.com. Integration brings more space to kitchen cabinets when some of the appliances are integrated to the worktop. And when they are integrated and hidden in to the worktop, you´ll have more workspace.
Automation- Kitchen cabinets are now being automated, one touch and the door opens it self. You can close it by push of a button. These things come handy when you hands are full and you need to open the door. Visit Blum @ http://www.blum.com/eu/en/01/10/50/10/
I almost forgot one of the coolest systems there were, Kesseböhmer kitchen island. You can adjust the height of the island by push of a button. The island can be adjusted about 15cm, up or down to suite your desired working height. The island was big and heavy, so that is impressive and handy.
