The kitchen: Is it the most used space in your house?
The kitchen has become the most multifunctional and used room of any house. From doubling up as open-plan living rooms to makeshift home offices, our kitchens are evolving. Here are a few must-haves for kitchens in 2021.
• Hot water taps are going to be a sought-after item for the kitchen in 2021, it seems with endless zoom calls to get through boiling the kettle is too long to wait for that much-needed caffeine hit!
• Red is going to be a key colour for kitchens this year, colour can be a great mood enhancer, think muted merlot reds for an elegant colour injection “By pairing with neutral greys, truffles and cashmere, families can experiment with daring colour without it being overpowering’.
• Extractor fans are being reimagined for kitchens of the future. ‘There is a shift towards downdraft extraction systems which remove odours and vapours at their source, i.e. directly from the hob and draw them downwards before they have a chance to permeate the air’ explains Willi Bruckbauer, founder of BORA.
