It‘s the hub of the home and where we typically spend the most time, so that‘s why new kitchen trends and innovations draw the most interest. Anything that can make work easier, storage better and cooking faster will enhance your time in the kitchen. Besides, some of the latest technology is just plain cool. At the 2017 Architectural Digest Design Show, we got a look at the some of the newest appliances and fixtures for the kitchen. Sleek cabinetry is still hot and this kitchen island from Bauformat includes the latest must-have: Undercounter LED lighting. While it‘s a cool look, the addition of lighting under the edge of the counter also serves an in important functional purpose because it means no more digging around in a dark drawer or cabinet. Another great example of a clean, modern look is this kitchen island from Scavolini. It is also innovative because of the porcelain material used for the top. Textured, matte and durable, even when you touch it, it‘s hard to believe porcelain is the material. The cabinetry is equally smooth and sleek. Cesar, the Italian company based near Venice, presented a cooktop that is rather new for the American market but is more known in the European market. It integrates the burners directly in the countertop, rather than via a cooktop insert. Of course, this cannot be done with every kitchen countertop material — only those surfaces that can take the heat. The minimalist kitchen design also includes a folding shelf that can be turned up to hide small items on the shelf, or be folded down for extra handy storage space while working at the counter. The shelving also has moveable hooks along the bottom for hanging kitchen cloths or utensils.
Retro kitchens are funky, charming and quite playful too. They utilize fun colors, vintage pieces and a personality that you can‘t find anywhere else. And today we‘re showing you how to conjuring one right inside your own home. Check out these 20 elements to use when creating a retro kitchen and start getting busy with your redesign or renovation today! A checkered tile floor is an absolute must when creating a true retro kitchen. Black and white is the classic, timeless option but red and white works too if you want something a bit bolder. Add polka dots wherever you deem fit. They add a bit of femininity to the space but they also help create that funky, vintage feel that retro kitchens draw their personality out of. Think linens when it comes to this print as they’ll play nice. Red evokes that playful nature that retro styles have, especially when playing with diner styles. Use it as a main color or in your accents for a beautiful contrast to your stark neutrals.
If you‘re looking for beautiful, durable countertops, Quartz might be a good choice. In fact, it is becoming the hot choice to add style to a kitchen. These countertops can look like natural stone but offer some benefits that stone cannot. That said, they do not have to resemble stone. Because the material is engineered, it‘s available in all sorts of colors that nature cannot provide. If you‘re shopping for countertops, you’ll want to consider not just the costs, but also the pros and cons of quartz countertops. Both quartz and quartzite are popular countertop materials that come from the same mineral: quartz. While both look the same, quartzite is a natural stone material and needs to be treated like other stone surfaces. What we are discussing here is engineered quartz. It‘s a bit of a misnomer to call engineered quartz countertops stone, because they really are not. The material is not cut from a quarry like natural countertop materials. Quartz is one of the most abundant minerals on earth that is a component of stone. If you’ve shopped for granite countertops, you will have noted mineral patterns in the stone, and one of those minerals is quartz. You might see some products touted as natural quartz. While the mineral is natural, don‘t think that the entire countertop is natural.
