Kitchen appliances that offer efficiency, function and personalization tend to catch my eye and I was inspired by a couple of offerings while attending the National Kitchen & Bath Association KBIS 2018 recently.
Speaking of kitchen appliance trends that are not only listening and responding to consumer desires and wish lists to personalize their homes to suit their lifestyles, Thermador has taken this concept seriously with the introduction of its new Freedom Induction Cooktop. The “intuitive features allow for greater control and ease of use,” according to Thermador and is marketed as “the largest fully usable cooking surface on the market within its class.”
Available in 30″ and 36″ I marvel at how this intuitive cooktop has the capability to “automatically recognize the size, shape, and position of cookware on the surface! So many key features enhance this product I encourage you to take a look for yourself.
Kitchen storage is another huge trend that is shaping kitchen design in a powerful way. From pantries to wall, corner and base cabinets technology is driving innovation storage solutions that are lifestyle friendly.
Kesseböhmer (CleverStorage), a world leader in creating exceptional kitchen storage solutions also inspired and impressed me with its product designs that bring efficiency and enhanced function to the kitchen space. Improved accessibility, organization while transforming wasted space into practical usable space was exciting to see.
What I really loved was Kesseböhmer’s introduction of the iMove intelligent pull-down system for wall cabinets. This system makes those hard to reach top shelf wall cabinets accessible as we’re seeing taller built-in cabinet units become a stable trend in kitchen design.
Features include the choice of one or two shelf option, soft open and close mechanisms, an option to fit cabinets widths from 21″ to 36″ and four finishes to choose from. This high quality and innovative line of storage solutions will bring order to your kitchen and efficiency to your life!
