Technology is typically the first association people make with the word 'modern.' And if you want your kitchen to be technologically advanced you will focus on computer chipped appliances and computers. Today appliances use computers to set temperatures, timers, food expiration dates, and even alerts for inventory restocking. A modern kitchen may very well include a large flat screen TV to display recipes, family calendars, household schedules, and it's certainly more fun to cook while watching videos, searching websites, or listening to music.
Kitchens have slowly become more and more important in family living. People are spending more time than ever in their kitchens, and kitchen design reflects this. If you want to know about kitchen design - what is hot, what is not then pay attention to this. A kitchen designed as purely as work area is not hot at all! What is hot is using workspaces to do double duty. A kitchen island can also be used as a dining table; by making kitchen cabinets look more like furniture the kitchen becomes cosier. And on the subject - banquette seating is a hot trend at the moment. In line with this trend, more and more people are putting wall mounted televisions and sound systems into their kitchens.
Do you still have fluorescent lighting in your kitchen - well if you want the latest in kitchen design - and to know what is hot, what is not - fluorescent lighting is definitely not. One long globe casting a harsh light over the kitchen was never an idea that combined style with utility - it's not something you use because it's beautiful - it's simply utilitarian. The latest in kitchen design is LED's (light-emitting diodes) which use less than half the electricity of fluorescents and can last 10 times as long. As for what is hot in kitchen design - the newest buzz is on 'accent lighting', and layered kitchen lighting. Chandeliers and pendants are as in as you can get for task lighting, along with lighting for cabinets. These do the job, and add style and ambiance to your kitchen. When it comes to lighting, fluorescents are so last century!
