With a record-setting attendance, the 2018 Milan Design Week still has design aficionados buzzing with excitement and inspiration. Of course, we wont deny our bias in declaring that our favourite part was the biannual EuroCucina, which focuses on the latest kitchen innovations. Without any bells or whistles, here is a selection of the team at Caesarstone South Africa’s favourite finds…

“Sprawling over 22,000 square meters, EuroCucina hosts 117 companies this year, ready to welcome the over 300,000 expected visitors. It’s the perfect occasion to get up close and personal with the many trends and technologies in an ever evolving sector. Walking through the gorgeous set up, four pavilions make it clear that the modern kitchen has become an area to experience at 360°, connected more than ever to living spaces curated down to the last detail.” – ELLE Decor US

The show’s focus on the kitchen highlighted ways that technology can make the functioning of this important hub of the home more efficient and attractive. One of our favourite trends was the modular kitchen, and the clever ways designers are hiding the basic functions of the kitchen, making the space calm and not intimidating.

With the changing kitchen culture, one needs to cater for a variety of family needs. With this in mind we witnessed serious customization to suit various lifestyles, while still managing to create a space that feels luxurious. Large islands with uninterrupted cooktops and grills, large sanitation areas, broad cabinets and high-suction hoods all met in harmony.

In terms of the general look and feel, the sky is still the limit when it comes to colours and aesthetics, however, there is without a doubt a change from the traditional kitchen. Think clean lines and mixed materials that bring the kitchen front of house. It is a serene space that is becoming more and more personalized, but still a safe zone where you can relax, entertain and live your best life.
