2013 has seen a number of new kitchen design trends, many influenced by natural wood, exciting texture and spacious, elegant, materials. Every household needs a bold and stated kitchen, and there’s no other area of the house that demands such importance and attention. There’s a reason why the kitchen is the heart of the home, and every food enthusiast should be able to refine their skills while making excellent meals for their family.
Men as well as women are focusing on the design of their kitchen these days, and thankfully there are a number of trends to match most desires. Here are some of the best kitchen designs and architecture trends we’ve seen this year.
Multimedia Kitchen Opera – Oikos
This innovative and high-tech kitchen is designed by Massimo Colombo, and comes from the famous Italian design company Oikos. Not only does this marvellous kitchen benefit from a double screen that complements living and working areas, but the screen can be used for a number of different things. From watching television to listening to music, and even surfing the internet, the Multimedia Kitchen Opera features beautiful wood craft, LED lighting and many other glamorous design features, making this one of the luxurious kitchen of 2013.
Ultra-Modern Glossy Kitchen – Judy by Futura Cucine
This stunning black and red kitchen has ‘chic’ written all over it, and it also gives the impression of increased space because it’s made of lacquered glass! The working area leaves nothing to the imagination, and is split into three parts (cooking, washing and eating) for increased efficiency.
Yin Yang Kitchen – Stefan Price
Elegant yet simple, the Yin Yang kitchen by Stefan Price provides balance and grace to any home. Taking inspiration from the iconic Chinese symbol, the kitchen is made up of two striking areas – black and white. Not only do these areas represent different personalities of the kitchen, but they can also be used to prepare different types of food.
Stainless steel appliances have also made an appearance in 2013 kitchen design trends, and the big brands have been taking all the limelight. Companies like Range Cookers, have produced a wonderful variety of stainless steel cooker,
and it’s the value as well as the design of these appliances that’s causing all
the fuss. Integrated appliances have made a comeback too, and there are a variety of options with 2013 kitchen design trends that will allow you to free up space with fitted appliances.
Gone are the days of overwrought and detailed cabinets, and thanks to simple colours and natural woods (mahogany and walnut), the old kitchen cupboard designs have been replaced drawer fronts, panel doors and smooth surfaces.
When it comes to counter tops, the latest trends have combined gold marble and light coloured Quartz. Architects have reduced the amount of heavy granite they use, and instead opted for a simplistic but elegant approach to our kitchen surfaces. Some designs even come with appliances built into the counter tops!
