One of the growing trends in kitchen design today focuses on creating a central spot in the home – a concept known as the “social kitchen” – that can be used for both cooking and entertainment purposes. Interior designers are finding that more and more people are mixing unexpected materials and textures, trying repurposed and eco-friendly furnishing options, and going back to the basics: clean lines, simple design, and a “zen-like” feel.
2014 is the year of finding ways to save time, space, and money (through energy savings) in kitchen design. We break down every part of the kitchen – from cabinets to flooring, to countertops and appliances – to show you how it all comes together to create the concept of a “social kitchen”, a space that’s both stylish and practical.
We hope it provides you with oodles of inspiration for creating a warm, inviting space in your home.
