Uform Shares Key Trends From Living Kitchen 2019
In their quest to remain leaders in product design, the Uform product design team recently made the trip to Cologne to seek inspiration from international show, Living Kitchen.
42,000sq metres of cutting-edge design was on show from over 200 exhibitors across 28 countries.
In terms of kitchen door design, the simple slab door construction seemed to be the dominant style with less of the shaker style door on show. Slab doors were complemented by various shelving systems and modular style stacking. Metal frames for doors and shelves were also featured throughout as well as industrial style textured glass doors.
Another very prominent trend coming through was the use of the same material for both worktops and doors to create a very seamless look. Rustic timbers were also on display as well as open timber drawers.
In terms of colours, darker and warmer tones were strong with many exhibition stands veering away from the grey tones which are still very much in vogue currently. A fusion of timbers and painted finishes were popular and in terms of overall styling, many displays showcased an opulent choice of colour propping. Heavy bolder patterns for walls were popular resulting in a very abstract, eye catching space in most instances.
