Colour schemes in the kitchen’s modern history -1990

The 1990s kitchen retained Formica countertops, solid wood cabinets, and poor lighting. However, this decade did see the introduction of built-in stark white cabinets and white tables. Sleek and simple was the theme of the 1990s kitchen, which meant an increased interest in white-on-white, monochromatic looks. More appliances became available, and open-plan kitchens started to take off. The island was introduced to allow for a hostess/cook, and kitchens really became a social point for families. The 1990s were a decade of experimenting in uniqueness, and it seemed no two kitchens were the same. Kitchen and living rooms were open plan with a common colour scheme, blending in this way the kitchen activities into daily living (Louise 2011).  Fragment from the book: "Kitchen Designer-Your Dream Job" by Valentin Tinc
