In 2019, Italy was once again setting the style agenda, unveiling the year's hottest kitchen trends at EuroCucina FKT. The biennial event, which was held in Milan earlier this year, is one the industry's biggest international kitchen showcases, featuring the latest in design innovation, technology and interior trends, which continues to have a profound impact on the housing industry. Interior innovators from across the globe - including Metricon's interior design team - descended on the 22,000m² exhibition space, where they were able to see and experience the latest in contemporary design and kitchen innovations from 117 of the world's leading brands, many of which are yet to hit local markets. These were their top kitchen predictions for 2019.
In 2019 we were going to see a movement towards minimalist simplicity throughout the kitchen, the domestic hub of the home. Kitchens were becoming increasingly compact in size and, in order to maximise the use of space, we were seeing a reduction in clutter to achieve a refined, minimalistic look.
