The Corona pandemic has made a significant impact at the soul of the house- the kitchen. The lockdown and the necessary health precautions have initiated a redefined usage of the kitchen. It is on its way to becoming more functional and adapted to post-Covid life. Let us look at some trends which might become the most in-choice in the future kitchen designs. Some of the changes will gear towards open kitchens, a suitable environment for meal prep, cooking and ample storage.

Open Kitchens with counters and informal seating will become a preferred style as the kitchen might turn into a go-to family hub. Social media updates are witness to the increasing activity of people around the kitchen, and it has also created the need for a functional and beautiful space.

 

Small Space Needs

Life in tiny apartments has also initiated the concept of making the most of living life king size in small spaces. Open kitchens create a more instagrammable look and integrate both cooking and entertaining with the added benefit of dining and storage. It has also brought in the concept of less clutter and more visual appeal. One popular choice is the long island kitchen concept.

Kitchen storage
