As for the bathroom, whose evolution has been studied and exhibited at the Salone Internazionale del Bagno, also the kitchen shows clear signs of change towards a more convivial and open space: whereas previously the living room or the lounge were the spaces where to stop and welcome guests, today also the kitchen becomes a place of work but also of meeting where everything is studied in detail: materials for doors and top, handles replaced by non-existent mechanisms for opening and closing machines, cabinets, appliances , etc..

Before going down in the specific of the news presented, as already reported for the Salone Satellite, a strong predominance in the use of wood in its various essences and processes: the use of this material shows a strong need to return to natural materials, certified, which are able to characterize and furnish both contemporary style kitchens and classic.

As evidence of the fluidity with which the spaces are conceived today, without a clear distinction between the various environments, many companies, devoted earlier to the furnishing of a single room, is now expanding dedicating to the research and testing of products for furnishing of the whole house.
Specifically, all exhibiting companies showed compositions and solutions that make one's life easier by creating flexible environments, and functional, ready to welcome friends and family, as well as to adapt well to the changing spaces and families in evolution.
