More open, more multifunctional, more natural, and more efficient, but without sacrificing design and aesthetics. So are the kitchens that come and that will help you reconcile more and better and take advantage of every millimeter of space you have at home.
One of the sectors that have best withstood the social crisis caused by COVID-19 has undoubtedly been interior design and decoration. After long months confined at home, most of us have realized the need to adapt our spaces to our new needs, which now also include areas optimized for teleworking, studying, leisure, or sports. So, to a greater or lesser extent, most of us have gotten down to work changing decoration objects or outdated furniture, renovating wasted rooms or getting into renovations or even a change of home.
1. Open and integrated kitchens in the space
The relationship between the kitchen, the dining room, and the living room has been transformed, eliminating borders and becoming a single large space, multifunctional and very well integrated, in which the passage from one area to another is totally fluid and harmonious, designed to share and to enjoy.
You will achieve this by establishing a common thread through the color and the furniture, which can follow the entire width of the space, creating a very balanced and coherent dialogue between areas.
2. Whites, clean lines, and high tech
Betting on sustainability and innovation means betting on energy efficiency, and without any need to renounce aesthetics and design. The kitchens that come are smarter than ever and incorporate appliances with the A +++, A ++, A + or A-labels, the most efficient, which will allow you to save energy and reduce your water, gas, and electricity bills.
3. Natural stone and wood
As time passes, the combination of countertop and natural stone cladding along with wooden furniture will not be outdated. Elegant, durable, and ultra-resistant, natural stone is one of the best options to dress our kitchen, as it provides us with extreme resistance to scratches, high temperatures, chemicals in cleaning products, stains, and humidity.
4. Minimal and Scandinavian
Warm, conciliatory, full of light and natural elements, with simple lines and no decorative tricks that do not add anything. This is what Scandinavian kitchens are like, those that, for a long time, has stolen our hearts and will continue to do so for much longer.
Although they can be used in any space, the balanced and calm environment they manage to create makes them perfect for small kitchens where it is important to make the most of every inch. Its perfect allies are natural wood and simple and discreet vegetation.
5. Rustic and elegant but urban
You no longer have to live in the country to launch into rustic decoration. Not much less. This style traditionally linked to village life has now become one of the great trends in urban homes, in which you do not necessarily always dress with the classic dark wood or the furniture with thick lines and robust shapes.
6. Island kitchens, large display cabinets, and objects on display
In this spectacular Santos shelf that we can see in the Discesur showroom, the objects are fully visible, imitating the traditional use of this type of furniture that we have always placed in the living room. In this daring proposal, besides, the oven and microwave are integrated into a high sideboard.
