|This year's kitchens are even homelier and noted particularly for their choice of wood variety, whether real or reproduction. Taken as a whole, the visible and tactile surface structures have gained in fine detail and quality. Vintage with lots of concrete and iron – but sometimes also combined with high-quality copper – go well for an upgrade of the modern loft. But always within a comfortable framework: this is also how one could describe the trend to front frames, not just dominating as a five-part cassette, but looking very narrow or low. In addition to rustic metal finger grips, half-milled grip strips are a new alternative. In terms of colour, there were fewer brown or earthen tones on display, rather bold pastel tones in blue or green. In place of white pallets there were various shades of grey, usually matt.
