When Millennials buy a home, their first priority is to design and equip the kitchen, according to the Chicago Tribune. “We hear that the kitchen is the heart of the home. So many people think that dinner is a thing of the past, but Millennials recognize that the kitchen and dinner table are where family bonds and memories are made,” said housewares expert Marsha Everton. While at the 2018 International Housewares Show in Chicago, the Chicago Tribune found three big Millennial kitchen trends. Take a look:
The Natural Look
Earthy, natural materials including bamboo were one big trend at the show. Marble cutting boards, wooden trivets and leather accents provide a chic touch in the Millennial kitchen.
A Touch of Fun
Millennials love whimsical details, and playful products were a strong trend in the kitchen. From unicorn pancake molds to quirky wine charms, the idea is add some fun during mealtime.
The final Millennial kitchen trend centers around clean eating and sustainability. Because of that, look for eco-friendly, recycled, reclaimed and repurposed products that focus on the environment.
