The broad trends in kitchen design on display at Eurocucina will inevitably be reflected in the rest of the world in the coming year or two. For this reason, it’s important to highlight the kitchen trends on show. Some of these are already being seen in the Australian market but can be expected to be further refined or to become more mainstream while other trends are new.
Handle-less doors even for fridges and dishwashers
This stunning stone benchtop is enhanced by the streamlined wall of cabinets behind concealing the fridge and microwave. Better electronic drive systems now allow touch opening of even the typically resistant doors on these appliances.
Interior lighting of drawers and cabinets
The use of interior lighting is only seen on the most top end kitchens in Australia but the development of LED technology has seen the widespread use of lighting in drawers and cabinets at Eurocucina.
Floating cabinets and open shelves
Floating cabinets help break down the ‘solid wall’ effect and give a lighter touch to this kitchen enhanced by down lighting underneath. Once again, floating cabinets were a common sight in Milan.
The availability of better quality veneers and laminates has brought timber textures within reach of most kitchen buyers and aren’t the results just brilliant.
Split level benchtops
Split level benches help to divide food preparation from dining areas particularly with the use of contrasting finishes. These have been around for sometime in Australia but can be expected to become more widely seen for their practical application as well as design flair.
Well, that’s it from Eurocucina for 2014. If you’d like to see more of the fabulous kitchens showcased in Milan, we’ll be featuring them on our website and blog in the weeks to come.
