The trends for the modern age are seen in that open-plan living has evolved now to encompass more tasks than in recent years. The need to work from home and live and play at home all means the kitchen now has to be able to adapt and serve various demands and needs.
We are seeing a trend for wine storage as we are at home more and want to enjoy social evenings with close friends and family instead of having to go out. We are seeing the natural evolution of a space that interacts with the lounge and dining areas while not detracting from its core functions.
This also means though that the kitchen needs to be a welcoming space that you can relax in and enjoy a good conversation in and so the right materials are needed to enhance the experience of every user.
