There’s no doubt that the kitchen is the centerpiece of any Indian home. As culture plays such a big role in the decision to purchase or design a home, a lot of importance is often placed on the design of the kitchen as it is a place to gather with family and friends. This doesn’t look to change in 2019, as the kitchen appliance market in India is expected to continue to grow, at least 25% throughout the entire next year. From cutting-edge technology to simple appliances that make cooking easier, there are a few you’ll want to put on your wishlist in order to enjoy them before they become too popular.
Appliances That Increase Efficiency
The future is all about saving time, which is why we live in such a digital, voice-activated world in general. 2019 will see more of this type of technology in the kitchen, with appliances and gadgets emerging that help you cook with ease and comfort while reducing your workload. Hands-free faucets are all the rage and can even include certain water filtration systems that help make your home healthier and happier. Wi-Fi enabled appliances will increase in popularity throughout the next year, as they allow you to control pretty much anything in your kitchen through your mobile device.
On par with this trend are similar appliances such as the increase in touch controls, glass refrigerator doors, vacuuming drawers, and handless appliances that open or function using motion sensors. While not necessarily a feature that increases efficiency, matte black appliances are trending high as well and can give your kitchen a sleek, futuristic look to go with the voice-activated nature of the appliances.
High-Tech Without the High Cost
As smart home and kitchen technologies continue to infiltrate markets and homes all over the world, the popularity is causing prices to drop. Seeing as smart home tech is slowly becoming more mainstream and accessible in Indian homes, consumers will continue to reap the benefits in the form of more economic prices and various different models to choose from that don’t require taking a loan out just to pay for them. However, retailers are also taking advantages of the trends and offering consumers coupons and discounts on kitchen appliances in order to entice them to shop with their brand. The competition caused by the increase in popularity of certain kitchen appliances looks to carry over into 2019 and will force retailers to lower their prices or offer more discounts to gain the loyalty of clients in an increasingly over-saturated market.
A Modern Yet Futuristic Look
Combining the terms modern and futuristic seems a bit weird, but that’s really what 2019 and kitchen design seems to be all about. Mixing technology of the future with sleek, modern designs is slated to craft unique and creative kitchen design trends in the year ahead. Old-fashioned is out in one sense, but high-tech retro-themed appliances are back in, which is the perfect definition of modern futuristic there is. Your kitchen is the heart of your home, and to ensure your kitchen can live up to its fullest potential, try investing in a few of these trends while also enjoying the fact that prices for these types of appliances are continuing to go down as time goes by.
