Contemporary kitchen design can be described as minimalist or full of rational solutions – clearly shaped volumes with strong emotional influence and utter functionality. And if we can claim the contemporary kitchen has a soul, it must be definitely urban!
Kitchen furniture become higher, almost up to the ceiling. This trend is following the idea of maximum use of space. The modules become more mobile in order to be easily configured in different compositions. And behind the cabinets’ doors there are enormous amount of drawers and storages hidden, waiting to be transformed into containers for kitchen appliances, bottles, and various types of kitchenware and flatware.
Created in dynamic and functional style, the different kitchen surfaces are almost completely illuminated with built-in lighting.
Except for the artificial lighting, today’s kitchen shines with attractive metal claddings – inox or aluminum. Glass used in kitchen finishings, like front panels or doors, complete the brilliant, almost cosmic vision.
SInce a long time ago, kitchen has been not an isolated space any more, where only cookers and personnel enter it. Today’s design is an active participant in the social dialog at home. The kitchen countertops blend their original purpose of being an additional helpful surface to their extended application of a place for a quick snack or even a communication nook.
High class new materials which have been developed under the progress of modern technologies, elegant and smart design, that stands out with perfect combination between aesthetics and practicality, balance of shapes and colors – these are the essential elements in today’s kitchens.
And what a kitchen will look like tomorrow? Well, the creativity of furniture designers is incontestable because they always try to anticipate trends and offer suitable solutions so in near future kitchens will probably be able to cook on their own!
