Adhering to an ergonomic kitchen design layout means carefully placing every piece of the kitchen with comfort and effectiveness in mind. In other words, how do you make your kitchen most user-friendly? The basic principle of ergonomic design calls for employees to expend the least amount of energy to complete the most tasks in the shortest amount of time. An undercounter freezer, for example, might be placed right beside the deep fryer. This allows the fry cook to retrieve foods and place them in the fryer with little effort. Or, a kitchen may invest in taller prep tables to save chefs from bending over to cook. This cuts down on injury and physical exertion. Ergonomic design even extends to things like equipment selection and lighting. Having the right equipment for the job makes cooking easier and keeps employees happy, while good lighting allows employees to see what they’re doing and do it safely. The one drawback of ergonomic design is monetary. It is not necessarily the cheapest option because it is not always energy-efficient, depending on what types of equipment are placed together.
Hardware on cabinetry is all about the mix – handleless cabinetry combined with oversized pulls in matte finishes combined with knobs on featured pieces. Dark metals will be most prevalent in 2018, piggy-backing on the light/dark contrast theme.
The industrial style, perhaps overly accessorized in recent years, has been significantly watered down to a much less trendy/identifiable look featuring accents rather than full-on industrial themes.
Minimalism loves maximalism, translated, is a peripheral trend toward a clean, simple design framework which features a single, bold focal point of colorful florals or other bright patterns or colors. It’s a pleasant antidote to straight lines and introduces color, warmth and visual emotion in a surprising yet modern design statement – a backlash from recent years of minimalism in our interiors.
