From virtual reality technology to self-cleaning ovens and electrical motion drawers, high tech innovations are revolutionising the modern kitchen and heavily influencing kitchen design.
The latest kitchen innovations know no bounds with surfaces, appliances, cabinetry, flooring, lighting and storage all benefiting from new advancements.
From surfaces with engineered stone and durable coatings to motion driven cabinetry and smart appliances such as steam ovens, flexi space fridges and induction technologies – homeowners can draw upon a range of innovations to design their ideal kitchen around their lifestyle and situation.
Here are our favourite high tech innovations currently influencing kitchen design.
Taking a virtual tour of your future kitchen is now very much a reality thanks to 3D technology. Kitchen Connection customers will shortly be able to tour our kitchen options and finishes in a 3D environment, presenting a much richer environment than what could previously been experienced through 3D schematics.
Convenience is king with the latest in cutting edge appliances. From steaming and sous viding to self cleaning ovens and fridges with flexible interior spaces – there are a range of appliances specifically designed to ensure maximum functionality and convenience for homeowners. We love the steam assist oven by Westinghouse.
A great innovation developed by Blum is the SERVO-DRIVE. Unlike regular pull-out cabinets, drawers with this mechanism don’t require the use of handles. By using your hips or knees, the cabinet will open automatically. A very handy system for the multi-tasking cook!
Marble and granite in a kitchen look amazing but clever innovation by Caeasarstone means that home owners can benefit now from composite quartz surfaces that offer designer looks with much more practicality than natural surfaces.
Scratch resistant, non-porous, waterproof, mould and mildew resistant, the natural beauty and functionality of Caesarstone® surfaces make them ideal for kitchen applications. Caesarstone® surfaces never require sealing while large slab sizes provide a sleek and modern aesthetic, minimising joins and therefore maintenance.
Best of all, they come in a range of stunning designs ensuring maximum impact with minimum maintenance. Clever design at its best!
