As the organizers of the Milan exhibition themselves wrote, kitchens are being transformed from an exceptionally functional space into communication zones, friendly rooms, where it is so pleasant and convenient to receive guests. However, at the same time, the developers continue to focus on improving efficiency, the functionality of kitchen appliances, which is designed to make life as easy as possible for the owners..
As for kitchen furniture, it tends to be laconic, islands and open storage systems are popular. Designers aim to ensure that everything in the kitchen is at hand, so that the space meets all the principles of ergonomics.

The technique is becoming more and more clever, so don’t be surprised if an induction hob asks you how far you want your meat to be, whether to fry it with or without oil. Even wine cabinets now serve the drink at the temperature you specified, chilling it in time for dinner.
Two more trends are the transfer of professional appliances to home, amateur kitchens, including the emergence of new devices, for example, for cooking in a wok, as well as increasing safety in the field of using hobs..
We admit that not all EuroCucina-2018 novelties are yet available to ordinary housewives. There is, of course, a lot of “smart” kitchen appliances. But we are sure that kitchens of the future will become more and more accessible over time and will become more widespread..
