How Kitchens Evolve in the 21st Century
You may think that you’re aware of all the latest technological trends and advancements. You may even be proud to own some of them. Perhaps you have the newest model of iPhone, a piece of technology that many would crave to own. Maybe your home is fitted with an impressive security system, designed to keep you, your family, and your house as safe as possible. But when it comes to technology, what many people forget is that a place that could use a technological boost is their kitchen.
Believe it or not, there are a significant number of technological advancements in kitchen appliances and tools that will not only enhance the look of the space, but it will bring additional conveniences that could never before be imagined.
Here are two ways that designers and scientists alike are bringing kitchens into the 21st century.
They are Making Kitchens Smart
It isn’t unheard of today to have a kitchen where technology is incorporated into every function. This is what we call a smart kitchen. Smart kitchens are an evolving aspect of design. In fact, a lot of kitchens today are built smart from the ground up. If your home has an older kitchen, don’t fret, sensors, smart gadgets, and other devices can be easily incorporated into the current space.
Some popular features of smart kitchens include motion-sensored kitchen faucets (which sense the presence of hands underneath), refrigerators that alert you when grocery items are running low (or even when items are going bad), and a coffee maker that is programmed to have your brew ready when your morning alarm goes off.
They Rethink Kitchen Appliances
One of the hottest trends we are seeing for 2018 is gray-toned appliances in a dark brushed metal finish rather than stainless steel. Another departure from a past-popular trend is the public’s recent fascination with commercial ranges. More and more modern kitchen designs seem to be including induction cook-tops with separate single wall ovens.
If you are someone who is always on the go, and putting together a quality meal is still a struggle, consider a steam oven, this season’s “must-have” appliance. Steam ovens not only cook food faster, but they retain food nutrients and flavors better than a conventional oven. They are also often equipped with Bluetooth so that you can control oven functions remotely from your smartphone.
