Conclusions on kitchen surfaces future trends after visiting EuroCucina 2016
Before jumping into the ocean of thoughts and conclusions on the future trends in kitchen interior design, in particular kitchen furniture and worktops surfacing, we would like to reflect on the new savvy consumer behaviour as we are experiencing a new age of end-user’s lifestyle.
First think of a new savvy consumer
What we have seen in EuroCucina 2016 is that many successful companies adjusted their product and services towards the new consumer. What we mean is that people are looking for speding time at home more, reconnecting with themselves and families. Digital world took away a bit of concentration and people try to compensate that with mindfulness practices. This means they pay more attention to comfort level of their living space, especially kitchen as it is the place that makes our stomach happy and mind calm.
Needless to say, all the new consumers’ behaviours influence the way we build kitchen integral design and offer products and services to create savvy kitchen space.
With the help of this great fair as EuroCucina 2016 we realized that home design world moves towards creating individuality, joy, quality with the help of high-tech material and appliances. Thus, below aspects are the new keywords for the future trends.
Rough textures arrive to kitchen
What else can better make interior design look more sophisticated than roughly textured cement? Mimicking industrial design is not a new trend but rather continuity and expansion into kitchen surfaces. We have observed that reproducing cement finishing with textures, that are vividly rough, makes kitchen space authentic and full of intriguing senses effects. Manufacturers try to create the same look with different materials adding personality with the level of roughness and unusual array of colours.
Brushed aluminum with circular swirlsThis is something new and impressed us on how else we can add individuality to kitchen cabinets finishing. Imagine kitchen surfacing with a look of hand-made polished aluminum with circular swirls in different sizes and forms. This aluminum robust and fresh look with textures is so much about avant-garde, individuality and serves as another proof that kitchen becomes not only a place for cooking but rather as homeowner’s favourite place for reunions, watching TV and other daily activities that normally used to be done in living rooms.
Porcelanic stone look for a drop of vintage
Starting from porcelanic stone looking like worktops, the rest of the kitchen furniture, in this case cabinet doors, are finished with the same look in order to enhance the effect of sophistication.
Dress up cabinet doors with dark walnut wood
Despite having rich grain pattern, walnut wood look helps to add feelings, intrigue sensations and to do the job of tranquilizer in kitchen space. As stated above, there is no need to use the wood but rather play with another budget-friendly and rich in variety materials. Since we are to play with more and more textures, dark walnut wood effect on kitchen cabinet doors is going to help us to add depth into still trendy minimalistic style.
Of course dark colour is a king of saying many word by its one and only shade. Dark colours are always there to help us to dress up kitchen with elegance.
Matt is a new gloss
Just a short while ago we observed a strong need for kitchen surfaces in high gloss as now we experience a drastic increase in super-matt finishes utilization. There are a few reasons for that. One of them, as Transformad believes, since a lot of textures are added to kitchen furniture finishing, matt makes perfect balance when it comes to minimalism. Moreover, matt is always calming down and with its simplicity makes very loud statement of its luxury creating features.
Recreate and Innovate
“Recreate and innovate” can be considered as a new slogan for the new trends in kitchen furniture surfaces. We are happy to discover that art of cabinet doors and worktops finishing is getting into the spotlight more and more. Our consumers are utilising kitchen more often so we need to consider this more than twice. Therefore, Eurocucina gave idea to manufacturers which materials and textures are to be mimicked so now it’s our turn to present to the market the best surfacing solutions. Thus, we should bare in mind that it’s not just recreating a natural material’s look but to add innovative touch as our end-users expect us to provide cost-effective kitchen furniture with the looks, hues, textures and colours that nobody else can have but them only. This requires imagination, expertise and the best material that can help to innovate new looks of conventional materials.
