Gone are the days of backroom kitchens hidden away from the rest of the home. The trend of an open floor plan has been widely adopted as the new norm in kitchen architecture and home design. This trend appears to be here to stay based on busy lifestyles, the desire for a more sociable living space for entertaining, and the need for a convenient space to both live and work in.
With the adaptation of open floor plans that create a connection of several rooms within the home comes the desire for designs and fixtures that are not only eye-catching and beautiful, but also provide livable style. BLANCO takes livable design to the next level with products like their BLANCO ARTONA™ and BLANCO ATURA™ faucets. Organic designs and color-matching ability make these faucets an optimal choice when the kitchen becomes more visible in open homes.

Open kitchens and floor plans create the space for large islands and work stations that encourage families and guests to create a sociable work environment while prepping and entertaining. With this comes the desire for large sinks that fit perfectly and work well as a focal point in the kitchen. BLANCO’s innovative IKON® apron front sink brings beauty and durability to this space and works well in any style home.
Open floor plans are here to stay as time-pressured families want to spend time together – even while doing chores. In fact, the laundry room is another space that is seeing a design makeover and BLANCO has recently launched a line of laundry sinks featuring the BLANCO LIVEN™ and BLANCO QUATRUS™ R15. These sinks are up to the task of making an old utility room stylish and accessible to the rest of the home.
