European Kitchen

In Europe, the kitchens are considered furniture. Italy and Germany are leaders in kitchen design. For about 10 years starting in the 90’s, simple and modern designs were popular, but from 2010, a mixture of modern and traditional designs gained popularity.
In recent exhibitions in Germany and Italy, kitchen designs have been traditional neo-classic, or vintage, with a hint of modernity. Warmer designs are starting to be selected more than cool sharp designs. Material selection has also changed; using rusty metals, solid wood that shows the wood grain, cracking knots, or unpeeled logs, are all dramatic changes in trend.
In the 2012 Eurocucina, an international Milano kitchen exhibition, classic kitchens garnered attention. Many had open shelves, molded doors, added colors or motifs, and handles or pulls. At the same time, eco-conscious kitchens using eco materials that decompose easily have also evolved. In contrast, at the 2013 Living Kitchen, (the international kitchen exhibition in Koln, Germany), a casual kitchen using either high-quality melamine or high-pressured laminated wood was presented. Wood, tile or check-printed smoky color designs were often seen using advanced printing techinic.
