From the article:
At the combined International Builders Show and the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show in Las Vegas last week, REALTOR® Magazine picked up three key trends to watch for in the coming year and beyond.
Foodies Changing Mainstream Kitchen Design
Designers and builders are starting to realize this foodie thing isn’t just a passing phase, and many are thinking about how best to serve a growing niche in kitchen design.
“Think about different questions to ask home owners about their food acquisition,” says Judith A. Neary, principal of Roadside Attraction Design Studio LLC in Vashon Island, Wash. “Do you have a garden? Do you do canning? Where do you store that? I have to have these conversations with them. We’re trying to plan a kitchen solution for that.”
These changes are also reflected in appliances, with foodies demanding high-temperature cooking options—in excess of 700 F. There’s also been an increase in interest in induction cooking, which heats pots using strong magnets, according to chef and author Jan D’Atri.
“I don’t think the technology was there before. Now it is, and it’s a great option.”
D’Atri also predicts high-end consumers will soon expect newer cooking options, such as the combi ovens (a steam and convection oven rolled into one) instead of a traditional second oven.
But small changes can make a big difference in the foodie kitchen of tomorrow, too. “It’s all about being really thoughtful about the things that are going to make a difference,” says Karman Hotchkiss, executive editor for Better Homes and Gardens’ Special Interest Media. She notes that a niche within the larger foodie niche, the “baker’s kitchen,” often includes a surface with “little divots for bringing eggs up to temperature. That’s really thoughtful.”
