The kitchen is open, the island still occupies a prominent place there, wood or the wood effect are still popular, matt lacquer is gaining strength and Dekton becomes the ideal solution for worktops.
Open to gather
A friendly living space, the kitchen is no longer a technical and cold room. On the contrary. It has kept the essentials essential to its primary function and added to it what makes its charm today, the possibility of gathering there and sharing more than meals, special moments with family or friends. For that, it will be open, on the living room or the dining room. The island, essential, participates in this search for well-being together. Thanks to its dining area or snack plan, you can meet there for an aperitif, or to snack. Its cooking area allows you to cook while chatting. We even go so far as to start the day there at breakfast time. Also practical, the storage spaces it offers.
If the open kitchen has everything going for it, we can address a few minor complaints about the noise and the disorder.
To “act as if”, the glass roof remains a preferred solution. It makes it possible to manage the space while keeping it a beautiful light and a partial opening. It also reinforces the workshop or industrial style, which gradually takes over the kitchen.
Materials and colors
Wood remains timeless. The wood effect is gaining ground. With the eye as with the touch, one would be mistaken there so much the imitations are bluffing of realism; the melamine facades with wood effects perfectly reproduce the deep veining of the different species.
In terms of colors, white does not give way to gray in all its variations: pearl gray, mouse, anthracite, even beige and blue become gray. The most daring are tempted by red, always dynamic for a kitchen.
Whatever shade you choose, on lacquer as well as on wood, matt is essential. Gone are the days of shiny, we are looking for more softness, for the sight as for the touch, which becomes velvet.
