Kitchens continue to be the heart of home renovation. Winning Appliances reveals the top appliances trends for 2019 as more home renovators embrace seamless design; new technology; bold colours; and appliances that help preserve the quality of food and wine. Laundry renovations will become as beautiful and seamless as the rest of the home, as more home renovators become aware of the benefits of the latest laundry appliances. Here are Winning Appliances’ trends:
Integrated appliances. Integration has become a buzzword, as more Australians want their kitchen to have an aesthetically pleasing look without the clutter of appliances breaking up the kitchen design. Integrated appliances such as Fisher & Paykel’s Column Fridge products are popular; as well as integrated dishwashers.
Attainable technology and automation. More appliances brands are using the latest technology, which means that even though design and quality will vary, home renovators can enjoy the benefits of the latest technologies at any price point. Automated appliances will become more prevalent as home renovators become comfortable using programs that not only make life easier but also deliver quality restaurant cooking such as: ASKO’s 60cm Pyrolytic Built-In Oven with 87 auto programs; SMEG’s 60cm Dolce Stil Novo Pyrolytic Oven With Steam Assist and 50 programs; AEG’s 60cm PyroLuxe Pyrolytic Built-In Oven with SenseCook food sensor; and V-Zug’s 60cm Electric Built-In Combair Steam Oven with easy cook function.
Bold with colour. Despite black being the favoured colour for built-in ovens, bold colours continue to make an appearance with kitchen renovations embracing bright hues to make a statement. Coloured upright ovens from Smeg and Ilve are popular; while coloured taps and sinks from Abey, Oliveri and Franke ensure that even the wet area of a kitchen has impact.
New love of laundry. There will be more of a focus on the laundry in 2019 as home renovators upgrade to take advantage of the latest programs and steam technology used by brands such as Asko, V-Zug and Miele. Hand washing delicate items in a laundry tub will become a thing of the past, as the latest hand wash functions allow you to wash silks in a washing machine. New laundry design statements will be made with the release of Asko’s stainless steel laundry appliances.
Food Preservation. Australians are becoming more interested in preserving food. Products such as Smeg’s residential blast chiller have food preservation qualities that don’t affect or alter the taste and quality of the food. Fisher & Paykel’s column fridge was created to be fully customisable with four separate temperature zones, the most notable one called “soft freeze” that allows you to take portions at a time without needing to defrost or struggle with frozen-solid food. Sub Zero fridges also help with food preservation by cleaning the inside air every 20 minutes, absorbing odours, bacteria and the ethylene.
