As we become more digital-savvy and design aware thanks to the plethora of inspiration at our fingertips, it seems that our kitchen design habits are also changing too. Consumers are more acutely aware of seeking inspiration from seeing real kitchens and taking cues from actual client projects on Kbb websites, as opposed to the stale 3D visuals that litter manufacturer brochures and room displays.
Kitchens Kitchens spoke to Kbb Marketing Consultant Lee Oakley of Edible Marketing who says “homeowners like to see what their peers are putting in their own homes and you only have to look at the continued appeal in home and design tv shows to see that Kbb retailers are missing out in not showing the scope of their design skills with detailed customer case studies.”
Laura Calimano, trend forecaster for Cosentino also mirrored that homeowners are becoming more adventurous in their research. “Our emboldened customers are steering away from tried-and-tested kitchen schemes and opting for more unique designs that fully reflect their personalities and the way in which they use the space,”
