The kitchen is becoming the heart of the home

A place for socializing and living – not just cooking and dining

The kitchen is at the heart of the home – it is a central place for meeting, dining and communicating. Do you also dream of a comfortable kitchen – where you can while away the time, meet each other and welcome guests? An inviting design that offers a visual link to the living area is thus in demand: Wood surfaces and comfortable furniture in elegantly understated surroundings and with scope for that special designer touch are currently all the rage. In the kitchen, this home furnishing trend is combined with demands for modern functionality.

Transforming the kitchen into an additional living space

Kitchens with state-of-the-art technology are currently coming in contact with traditional materials, something which is also in demand at present. At interior design fairs, hansgrohe has observed how kitchen manufacturers often combine elegant furniture such as cabinets and high-quality sideboards with high-tech equipment. Warm touches such as carpets and tactile furniture fronts in a stone design combine with charming lighting concepts to round off the home kitchen. Additionally, a discreet extractor fan leading downwards allows the kitchen island or open counter to blend in with the homely atmosphere. In this design concept, hansgrohe kitchen faucets bring added touches of the highest design quality.

Modern faucets round off the individual design of the kitchen

hansgrohe offers a selection of aesthetic and functional faucets for the sink that fit in with the concept of individual home living and are the perfect minimalist kitchen aid. They have an understated design without sacrificing on functionality. This is the perfect solution for a design concept that sees the kitchen more as a living space rather than a working space.
