The Latest Kitchen Innovations

kitchen innovations

Glass and high-gloss lacquer are becoming more and more prominent in today’s modern kitchens.

One of the keys to getting a kitchen remodel that is trendy but also timeless is to look for the most modern innovations. Leicht cabinets, for example, are designed to function intelligently while also maintaining a sleek style that will look appealing for many years to come. The best kitchen remodels are a marriage of form and function. Here are some of the latest kitchen innovations to consider making a part of your kitchen.

Reclaimed Wood

Cabinets, countertops, or other kitchen features made of reclaimed wood give the kitchen a sophisticated and “lived in” feel. Especially if you know where your reclaimed wood has been procured from, you are adding a sense of history to your kitchen. Plus, using reclaimed wood is good for the environment, which is what makes these kinds of kitchen innovations both stylish and a good investment for the future. However, if you choose reclaimed wood for your countertops, be prepared to put in the time to maintain them.

Glass and Ceramic

According to Tom Wilkinson, owner and president of Arete European Kitchens in Austin, Texas, new technology is making glass and ceramic countertops and cabinet fronts a chief competitor against the traditional marble countertops and high-gloss lacquer surfaces. Glass and ceramic are becoming increasingly more inexpensive, which is boosting their popularity. We’ve already seen this popularity among Leicht’s custom glass backsplashes. This new option offers surprising durability and gorgeous luminescence when sunlight hits the surface.

Hydraulic Lifts

Hydraulic lift technologies were novel kitchen innovations ten years ago. Today, more and more kitchens are utilizing this technology for a quarter of what it used to cost a decade ago. The kitchen lifts that are most in demand are lifts for appliances that sink back into the counter when not needed, hidden televisions that lower from behind cabinets, and custom bars that rise out of the countertop.
