The idea of the kitchen being the heart and soul of the house has been taken a step further in 2014 with the popularity of the social kitchen. Turning the traditional kitchen into a family–friendly hub that promotes interaction and creates a fun hangout, the concept blurs the boundaries between the kitchen and the areas around it. Adding an extended breakfast nook in the kitchen, a small banquet in that lonely forgotten kitchen corner or even a cozy tufted bench next to the window is a great start in getting this accomplished. The idea is to ensure that every member of your family feels comfortable hanging out in the kitchen. One can even add a small workstation or kids’ play area next to the kitchen so that no one is left out. The shape and the ultimate design of a true social kitchen depend on the specific needs of your family. So get creative and make the best use of available space to turn the kitchen into a hip and happening spot in 2015!
While we do not believe that trends should always dictate the overall look of your kitchen, you can choose to use them sporadically to get the best out of both long term and short term designing goals. This is especially true for those looking to give their kitchen an entirely new direction without committing to it for decades to come. So, as you browse through these hip kitchen trends, you might well find that last little missing piece that will complete your dream kitchen.
