If you are wondering how kitchens will be designed in the future, kitchen remodeling professionals predict that homeowners will favor a few style trends. For the most part, kitchens will look how they have always looked, with lots of counter space, cabinets, and efficient new appliances. Kitchen designs of the future are designed to match the efficient lifestyles of the future while making cooking and dining an even more luxurious and enjoyable experience. If you’re thinking about a kitchen remodel with T&G Builders, consider whether these modern designs are right for you.
Kitchen designs of the future have shiny, non-porous surfaces that are easy to clean and maintain without much worry about chipping, cracking, or staining. Today, laminate surfaces provide these qualities in their colored or faux-wood versions. These surfaces can endure all sorts of wear and tear without the vulnerability of natural materials.
Lots of Curved Lines
One of the most striking features we may expect to see in kitchen designs of the future is an increase in curved lines. As kitchen materials become more innovative, it is easier and more affordable to design kitchen counters and cabinets with curved edges and unique shapes beyond the very traditional, boxy layouts homeowners are used to.
Currently, Corian and Quartz countertops can be manufactured to suit nearly any shape you want. Curved countertops are often highly appealing to homeowners because they look unique and striking but are safer than countertops with sharp, angular edges.
Improved Hygiene and Easy Maintenance
Kitchens with modern, manufactured materials are often more hygienic than their natural counterparts. This is because granite, slate, marble, and wood all have to be sealed in some way to keep grime, germs, mildew, and mold from infiltrating their natural pores or grains.
Synthetic materials made from non-porous resins don’t have nooks or crannies that can harbor contaminants or bacteria, so maintenance is as easy as a simple wipe-down with an antibacterial cleaner. Laminate cabinetry, Corian, and Quartz are all considered hygienic materials.
Smart Kitchen Technology
Already homeowners are taking advantage of innovations in smart kitchen technology to increase the convenience of their time in the kitchen. In kitchen designs of the future, smart technology is expected to be more commonplace. As it is today, you can find more high-end appliances that have smart controls or advanced features that set them apart from traditional versions.
