Eurocucina Showcases the Hottest Trends in the World

Eurocucina, one of the largest furniture and design fairs in the world, is held every other year in Milan, Italy as part of Salone del Mobile. Eurocucina offers a window into the trends that will dominate kitchen design, materials and products in the years to come.  We are pleased to provide homeowners in Arvada, Castle Rock, Colorado Springs, and Denver with this year’s Eurocucina perspectives and trends dominating design and materials. The trends included:

  • Multifunctional space
    • Designs focussed on the growing importance of multifunctional space and adaptability that allows for the seamless integration of cooking, dining, and entertaining in the most important room in the home.  
    • Islands continue to be a focal point especially when they are connected to countertops or rounded or rectangular dining tables. This approach serves to combine the kitchen and dining room into one space.
  • Strategically placed open shelving and functional wall panel systems enabling homeowners in Arvada, Castle Rock, Colorado Springs, and Denver to display their most prized cookware, glassware, artwork and family heirlooms. This trend offers a perfect blend of visual interest and functionality.  
  • Less is more: Pocket and folding doors and sliding countertops that conceal the stove, appliances and sink allowing the kitchen area when not in use to blend seamlessly into other living areas.
  • High-performing, environmentally friendly and natural materials that include wood, marble, terrazzo and head-turning natural stone that connect the indoors with the outdoors, adding warmth and visual interest. These materials were complemented by warm color tones that included terracotta, taupe, sage, clay, ochre, mustard, rust and brown.   
  • Two tones kitchen. Bases in one shade and wall cabinets in another.  
  • Rounded corners and curved surfaces that provide a softer vibe in the kitchen and add depth and sophistication to the space.
  • Sustainable appliances using sustainable materials and leveraging smart technology to decrease energy consumption
  • Smart technology that simplifies and streamlines meal preparation and cooking and allows homeowners in Arvada, Castle Rock, Colorado Springs, and Denver  unprecedented control and personalization capabilities for meal preparation and offerings.
  • Textures on cabinets and island bases featuring grooved front panels, fluted, reeded and beaded panels in solid wood, laminate and glass provide an almost unlimited opportunity for homeowners to make distinct and personal design statements in their dream kitchen.
  • Smart technology that uses less energy, reduces waste and simplifies and streamlines preparation and cooking that give homeowners unprecedented control and personalization capabilities for their family meals.
    • Smart refrigerators that reduce food waste.
    • Smart ovens that know how long to cook different food types without having to set temperature or time  
    • A-I generated recipe recommendations
    • Voice activated ovens, dishwashers, faucets, lighting and thermal comfort
