Electricity brought many timesaving devices into the kitchen, as well as many inventions that pulled us away from the kitchen. Due to the innovations in the kitchen, fewer people were needed to prepare meals, so the kitchen lost a lot of its social importance and became a smaller, super-efficient working room. Built-in cabinetry, previously delegating only to Butler's pantries in larger homes, now became the best way to shrink the kitchen into an efficient workspace. With more leisure time, socializing was delegated to the living areas of the house, because the kitchen was too small.
The most advanced and well equipped kitchen is named the Trophy Kitchen. This specific type of kitchen is highly equipped with expensive and sophisticated appliances. The prime objective of these kitchens might not be the actual use of all the appliances placed in the kitchen. These are predominantly meant for impressing visitors and projecting the social status of the owner. Usually these kitchens do not require much remodeling as they are already highly equipped and laden with expensive appliances.
Shape: What we really mean here is the use of curves or straight lines in kitchen design. Curves are most significant in classical and traditional kitchens, where softer edges is the key trend. Curves are also popular in modern style kitchens while for a contemporary look, sleek sharp lines will stay in vogue. Contemporary kitchens need sharp lines to distinguish themselves from even modern kitchens, with slimline worktops and end panels adding that finishing touch.
