Appliances have moved on from being purely functional. They subtly enhance our daily life in the kitchen and have become a key consideration when designing our kitchens.
More and more people are planning their appliances at the start of the kitchen design process. IKEA appliances are design to fit perfectly with IKEA kitchens both in style and size. Combining them will allow you to create a dream space. If you cook together, having the oven and hob in separate places makes it easier.
The design of our appliances should not be a last minute idea, there is no need for everything to be the same. Nowadays we want more from our appliances, we want them to be totally integrated into the kitchen, or to be superstars in terms of aesthetics. With a range of striking designs and colors, why not make your own style statement?
When it comes to kitchen devices, small details can make a big difference, such as the feel of control knob or handle. At IKEA we design our appliances so they feel good when you use them. “They are quite heavy in the hand, signaling quality and making you feel proud to own them”, says Bruno.
Extractor hoods clean the air, removing steam and smells. And they also add that special touch of style to your kitchen. New designs are even more efficient at capturing impurities for minimum noise and energy.
Integrated appliance lighting is important for creating harmony in the kitchen. Look for warm, ambient forms that blend with the rest of your kitchen: some appliances even have dimmable switches to help set the right mood.
