Design with Hettich – Cadro Framing
Kitchen Innovation: The Future of the Consumer Kitchen is Now
EuroCucina 2022 marked the 23rd year of showcasing the latest kitchen trends and interior design as renowned designers, builders and industry-leading companies including Hettich convened at Fiera Milano, Italy for Europe’s largest kitchen trade show. As EuroCucina returns from its lengthy hiatus since its last event in 2019, kitchen innovation has notably shifted as the role of the home kitchen has become more important than ever. Now emerging are the trends that will define the kitchen of the consumer for the next few years.
A return to form in the style of ‘naturalness’ dominated the kitchen scene, with a preference for beiges and muted colours, together with wood, marble, and stone were paired together to create a sense of simplicity and elegance amongst curved worktops and splashbacks. Red tones made an unexpected emergence for cabinet joinery, acting as a representation of joy and activeness in the kitchen.
Additional trending colour palettes included pastel, gold, and copper for metallic highlights, and black which remained the favourable of colours. The characteristics of the different kitchen elements can be paired with the AvanTech YOU drawer from Hettich, a design-conscious homeowner’s dream. With design-focused innovations, it provides the ability to customise to different colours and materials.
The home kitchen can now be transformed into a multifunctional space. Open storage in the form of shelves can be used to blend a space within a room to create hybrid living. The aluminium Cadro frame system from Hettich is well suited to this trend. The matt black framing system has a distinctive framed aesthetic and is compatible with Hettich’s award-winning fittings to offer a complete cabinetry system – Sensys hinges, AvanTech YOU thin-walled drawers and Slideline M sliding doors.
While trends become unpredictable and ever-changing, Hettich’s innovation in the industry as Germany’s finest kitchen and bathroom cabinetry hardware manufacturer ensures that not only the company, but consumers will be at the forefront of new technologies to come.
