The Wellness Kitchen Trend

A design discussion

Sponsored and Hosted by Caesarstone

The desire to live healthily and our growing knowledge of how daily habits affect wellbeing are major influences on kitchen design today–and for good reason. After all, the kitchen is the heart of the home and should further our healthy lifestyle, not hinder it. That’s where the Wellness Kitchen comes in.

The Wellness Kitchen trend extends beyond just a healthy diet. It is about using advancements in technology and design to foster healthier lifestyles for our bodies, our minds and our planet. An ideal Wellness Kitchen doesn’t just feed the mind and soul with its functional, visually satisfying designs. It also encourages social interactions and environmentally friendly lifestyles.

From residential remodeling to commercial development, there is a growing niche for wellness-focused design, creating an opportunity for designers, contractors, retailers, manufacturers and other industry professionals to contribute to a better, healthier world. 

At Caesarstone, we strive to create a kitchen counter culture that contributes to and fosters healthier lifestyles, from the manufacturing plant all the way to the home. Now we want to hear the role health and wellness plays in your work!

OUR KBtribechat QUESTIONS:

1.) From putting healthy food on public display to open-concept kitchens that encourage family interaction and food prep, there are all kinds of ways to design with wellness in mind. What does the Wellness Kitchen trend mean to you? 

2.) Consumers are becoming more conscious of not just their own health, but the health of the planet.  Using sustainable, green building materials is more prevalent than ever before. How do you incorporate sustainable materials/elements into your designs?

3.) Your kitchen should serve as a retreat, not a pressure cooker. What tips do you have for streamlining design to avoid clutter and promote minimalism?

4.) An ideal Wellness Kitchen should be easy to maintain, user friendly for all ages and logically planned. Share your favorite Wellness Kitchen design and tell us why you love it. 

5.) Caesarstone partnered with Dan Brunn Architecture & other green companies to create a house of the future. If you were designing a sustainable house, which materials would you use? Create your own moodboard and share: http://www.caesarstonesocial.com/contest/contest.html

July 20th at #KBtribechat – Kitchen Islands

A design discussion – sponsored and hosted by Caesarstone.

Kitchens are more than just a place to cook – they’ve turned into the heart of the home.

unspecified-5

At Caesarstone, we aim to make the kitchen look, feel, and perform to the highest standard with the ultimate countertop. With colors inspired by marble, (like Statuario Maximus) or cement (like Sleek Concrete) you can achieve the look of your dreams with the durability of quartz!

Our surfaces are ideal for kitchen islands: scratch-resistant, stain-resistant, heat-resistant, mold/mildew-resistant, long lasting, low maintenance, and requires no harsh chemicals for cleaning. That means these surfaces can stand up to even the messiest of families, while keeping your home safe, healthy, and green.

Our KBtribechat questions:

1. What materials and finishes are currently on-trend for kitchen islands? Countertops? Cabinetry? Hardware?

2. We’ve been noticing an increase in waterfall counters lately!  What unique island shapes/designs have you been seeing?

3. Do you like to match the island colors/materials to the perimeter or diversify? Why?

4. How do you design islands that increase efficiency and work in conjunction with the rest of the kitchen?

5. Islands often require choices (storage vs. seating; sink vs. cooktop). What are some tricks or tools that you use to identify what your client needs in their island vs. perimeter?
