2011 Kitchen Trends Debut at International Trade Show

January 21, 2011

As trade show season in the design industry is underway, 2011 kitchen trends are emerging. The new Living Kitchen trade show, billed as the first International Kitchen Show, has kicked off in Cologne, Germany, and we want to take a look at how design and technology are evolving in the coming year:

  • Kitchen layouts are changing as kitchens become part of the living space

  • The evolution of the "smart" kitchen, which feature "integrated sound systems, LED and digital lighting concepts as well as remote controls and electronic cabinet opening mechanisms"

  • Matte finished surface and countertops create the natural, organic look that is popular

  • Kitchen colors are being selected to create either a warm atmosphere or high contrast

  • Classic style cabinetry is making a comeback as a backlash against the minimalist look

  • Energy-saving and integrated kitchen appliances in simple black and white.
