Our new life habits, dictated by the pandemic year we are going through, have also changed the way we organize the spaces in our homes. Rooms have been transformed into multifunctional places where activities other than those for which those places were designed are carried out; and so it happens that the living room is transformed into an office for smart working or into a classroom for distance learning.
The kitchen, more than any other room, becomes the heart of every home because it is a place to meet, relate and conviviality, no longer a zone of passage for a quick lunch or snack to go back to the office or to study, but a space to live the extra time we spend at home. We have seen in a previous article, , "The new normal comes to the kitchen.", we've all spent more time between pots and new recipes to bring to the table, and we've all learned how important it is to bring a new awareness green in our homes: these themes have become so important that they are also inspiring the design and furnishing trends for the coming year.
Generally speaking, 2021 brings with it a great desire to functionality and of creativityIf we spend more time in the kitchen then this time should be well organized, cooking should be convenient and practical, everything at hand in short, and it will also be a creative time to experiment with new raw materials, new preparations and cooking.
When we talk about functionality we are clearly also talking about performance, more attention to the detailsto the finishes and to the technology. When we talk about creativity we talk about materials and colors.
The material and colour trends draw on the nature's colour paletteYes to wood and glass, yes to all colours that recall the sky, the earth, the sun, flowers. Bright shades for a kitchen with character or pastel shades for relaxing kitchens.
If you're not going to invest a large budget to renovate your kitchen, don't worry: sometimes a single item is all it takes to transform a kitchen into a custom space. A colourful sink, a mixer tap, a new appliance, can bring new and fresh air into your kitchen.
