Kitchen designs influenced by new products

Whenever it comes to new kitchen designs and how to develop new ideas for future kitchens everybody looks at newly available technologies to be adapted. Whether looking and traditional kitchen designs or more modern once whatever new type of hinge or drawer slides, stops or lifts are offered by the industry makes its way into kitchen cabinets and cupboards. Let's have a look on most recent developments on kitchen hardware which most certainly will influence future kitchen designs.

Kitchen designs with light

We have seen kitchen designs drawersmany ways to of applying lights in kitchen designs. Whether it was using neon lights underneath the hanging cabinets to halogen spots pointing directly on the kitchen sink and oven. And of course there was the indirect lighting which influence kitchen designs for many years. So what is next? Well one fantastic new idea comes from Hettich with its compact Minisys fluorescent tube. The tube is put behind glass panels and gives an impressive highlight especially when using drawer fronts and doors made of glass (photo:Hettich). Apart of the practical advantage of given extra light in finding anything in a drawer or a cabinet, the fluorescent light make every drawer row an eye catcher.

kitchen drawer designsAs far as corner solutions are concerned new kitchen designs will certainly more often see Blum’s corner cabinet solution with drawers and pull-outs instead of doors (photo:Blum). Every cabinet maker has come across the problem of how to best use the space in an 90 degree corner, where usually drawers would collide or space is very difficult to access. The design award winning solution allows the drawer to pull out perfectly using all of the given storage space within the kitchen cabinet.

Another very promising idea which could go well into new kitchen designs is Hettichs vertico synchro. A sliding door system (photo:Hettich) which moves two vertically sliding kitchen doors up and down at the same time. Especially for top-mounted kitchen cupboards it is a beautiful alternative and permits contemporary kitchen designs.

All three examples show how new hardware development will influence future kitchen designs. Some of the ideas may look a little bit futuristic, but make sure that you know at least that these solutions exist, so you can decide whether or not you want them incorporated into your kitchen. After all, with these and many other new developments in kitchen hardware, new kitchen designs will offer even more usability.
