The open-plan live-in kitchen is a communication hub and central meeting place. The various parts of the home are continuing to merge; this is reflected in the design of kitchen furniture: deeper fronts look homelier; this effect is now also being featured in the kitchen. Appliances are becoming more generously proportioned and being placed in the kitchen with less formality. Here, they make attractive eyecatchers and – thanks to modern technology – also in complete silence. Subtle lines and thin materials underpin the ever popular purist kitchen look. Contrasting this are kitchens in cosy country style. Popular for many years, the industrial style: seemingly shabby components made of steel, bare brickwork and rugged appliance design convey the charm of disused factory building interiors.
