In the days before electricity changed everything in our lives, family kitchens in modestly sized homes were large but simply appointed rooms. They contained a solid fuel heat source for cooking (a fireplace or a coal or wood stove) and a built-in sink, with or without running water. Everything else was a piece of furniture. The icebox was elegantly made of wood, as were the central dining/work table, cupboards, pie safes and pantries. The family kitchen was the central work/social place of the home too where family members, sometimes in the company of friends performed most domestic chores and socialized with each other.

The really keen consumer will likely attend a number of kitchen shows and showrooms before deciding on a kitchen. During that time they'll probably see a myriad of gadgetry that looks great at the time, and they'll want to add this to their own kitchen; one example of this is the 'Intelligent Fridge' that was supposed to order your groceries for you, warn you when you were running low on some items and more. Intel said that 'it will rule the roost' back in 1998, whilst The Independent reported on it in 2000 to say that they'll become a mainstay in future homes. 11 years later, is it that popular? No. In fact many would argue that it went the way of the dodo. They cost some $3,499, that's £2,248.84 to you and I. Why pay that when you can get a modern fridge freezer for under £1000, and buy a special case that allows you to stick your iPad or tablet to vertical surfaces? This would provide you with greater functionality, for a lower cost and you can move the iPad or tablet around the kitchen while you cook or clean. The lesson here is to think about the alternatives and wait... not all innovations catch on.

Materials: As we all know, there has been a significant move towards eco friendly and reclaimed materials in recent years. Expect to see reclaimed wood being used as a feature, especially in high end kitchens, even creeping in to modern and contemporary kitchens to add an earthy feel.

With the development of the 2 career families and single head-of-household families, there isn't enough time in the day to dedicate a lot of it to cooking. Again, innovations (i.e., microwaves, pre-prepared and frozen foods) have allowed us to spend less time cooking during the workweek. And when we are cooking, we don't want to miss anything that is going on around us. On weekends, we may relax in the kitchen/family room by watching TV or even entertaining friends by cooking elaborate meals.
