The colours you choose for your kitchen can mean the difference between a gloomy place where nobody feels at home and a room that embraces warmth and intimacy rather than an overwhelming stoicism. However, colour is slowly making a comeback into the kitchens of 2019, with homeowners increasingly using it in splashbacks and cabinets.
Chefs and homemakers know how important the design of a kitchen is for efficiency and ease while they work. The kitchen triangle (or golden triangle) has been basic since the 1920s when the idea of ensuring the steps needed to move around the kitchen were at a minimum. The term refers to the placement of the cooktop, sink and refrigerator in the shape of a triangle. In the 1940s the rules of the work triangle were based on the following:
Although the kitchen triangle is still seen as a good idea, it has lately been questioned.
The workplace triangle is still used in modern kitchens. However, our kitchens are generally much larger than those of the 1940s. Our kitchens today include added pantry storage areas, sculleries, microwaves and dishwashers with islands a popular feature. And while many professional designers of kitchens still use some aspects of the work triangle, but experts now say the modern kitchen isn’t used by just one person. Many families and friends join in and help with the cooking and meal preparation, and the kitchen is more of a place to socialise, so the triangle has to be modified. Some suggest two work triangles for two distinct work areas in the new kitchen.
Modern kitchen design is being revolutionised by innovation from virtual reality technology. You can now see a 3D design of your new kitchen and have the convenience of electrical motion drawers and self-cleaning ovens. If you’ve been able to calculate your borrowing power and can afford a brand new kitchen, keep these innovations in mind. These innovations are unlimited with appliances, surfaces, cabinetry, lighting, storage and kitchen flooring all benefiting from new developments. A modern kitchen can also have smart appliances such as fridges with flexible interior spaces, steam ovens and induction technologies, so homeowners can have a great design that fits their lifestyle. There’s even a rise in invisible appliances such as a stovetop with a fan built into the benchtop that pops up, removing the necessity for a range hood.
