With the huge following of the second series of TV show Masterchef, I started to wonder if our kitchens will be changing.
The kitchen has always been the hub of the house and used to be designated to it’s own room.
Over the years, we have opted for open plan living and the Kidili was born.
At one stage everything was on display and then we put all the ugly bits behind cupboard doors.
A few years ago, kitchens became smaller as there was a general consensus that we didn’t cook anymore, we assembled. You know, buy the salad mix, garlic bread and pre-made pasta and just assemble the meal in the kitchen.
According to attendees at the recent Milan Furniture Fair, it would appear there is a push to have the kitchen look like furniture pieces and not built in cabinetry.
But now with this interest in cooking (over 2 million viewers are watching Masterchef each night), are the kitchens going to get bigger again?
Kitchens remain the most expensive room in the house and it’s usually the first area the woman checks out when looking to buy a property.
So tell me, what’s cooking in your kitchen? Are you creating gourmet meals from scratch and therefore need that huge island bench, large fridge, commercial style cooktop and plenty of cupboard space, or are you still assembling a quick and tasty meal for the family?
Be sure to have a good weekend and enjoy your kitchen no matter what size it is.
