A new dimension for the kitchen
The kitchen then: A workspace
For the housewife of yesteryear, the kitchen was purely functional. The room was her well-organised workspace. Despite the invention of the dishwasher, the washing up was still largely done by hand because the cutlery and crockery were not dishwasher safe. The sink was about washing up and cooking was about making meals that fill you up.
The kitchen now: The hub of the home
Today we are seeing a departure from the idea of the kitchen as little more than a workspace, with a move towards a new, open-plan concept of kitchen architecture. The kitchen as the hub of the home, a place for living and for hanging out. With the washing up now taken care of by highly efficient dishwashers, today's kitchen sink offers smart solutions to transform itself into a functional extension of the worktop. The entire wet zone supports the cook by providing a perfect place to prepare a varied range of fresh produce, with food prep naturally making up the bulk of the cooking process.
