DEKKER |KITCHEN TRENDS 2020
Eternal Rocks and Soft Reflections: these are the most important kitchen trends for 2020. Market leader Dekker Zevenhuizen, together with trend forecaster Monique van der Reijden, has mapped them out in detail. These trends are not entirely new. After all, interior trends are not fleeting, but are developing all the time.
Just look at Raw Rituals, the 2019 trend. It had an underlying movement in which the sober use of colour, the calm colours and the natural materials provided a counterbalance to the hustle and bustle around us. This trend is reflected in an important trend for 2020: Eternal Rocks. In contrast to all these natural materials, there are the latest high-tech materials and techniques: terrazzo look, 3D prints, high-gloss, reflective materials ... The use of soft fabrics, nude tones and pastels often brings some peace and quiet back into the room. In other words, soft reﬂections.
Dekker is a family business and has been based in Zevenhuizen since 1930. We specialise in processing high-quality materials into custom-made worktops for the entire interior. You can recognize the worktops by the exclusive colors and the sleek finish. In addition, Dekker has a wide range of equally innovative and reliable kitchen and bathroom products such as sinks, taps and lighting. All products are delivered exclusively through the specialist shop.

DEKKER | KITCHEN TREND ETERNAL ROCKS: SOBRIETY, GEOMETRY AND DURABILITY
The house is a place without stimuli, so we can escape the hustle and bustle around us for a while. Our own rituals help us to come back to ourselves. This includes imposing and sometimes rough shapes and a church-like, monumental appearance. The mostly natural materials and colours are sober and subdued. We take care of our world, and attach importance to sustainable materials. In the Eternal Rock kitchen, concrete, wood, marble and stone are combined. The accent colours are terra and blue.
DEKKER | KITCHEN TREND SOFT REFLECTIONS: HIGH-TECH, NUDE AND PASTELS
In the world of architecture and interior design, it's all about sustainability. And that development cannot work without high-tech solutions and futuristic materials! In Soft Reflections we mainly see reflections, coloured glass and light reflections with iridescent colours. In order to bring that futuristic element into the home in an attractive way, we add soft fabrics, nude shades and pastels. And in order to create some privacy in all this transparency, we create screens and alcoves. In the Soft Reflections kitchen, glass, marble, stainless steel and chrome or metallic accessories are combined with accents of neon or iridescent colours.

NEXT125 | THE NEW HOMELINESS
Following last year's extensive restructuring measure, the next125 display area provides ample space for staging the premium brand's new releases.
In a dedicated section on the top floor of the house4kitchen, the brand demonstrates innovation and creativity: the spectrum of high-quality fronts and authentic materials characteristic of next125 — Ceramic, Fenix, satin lacquer, glass and solid wood — is illustrated on the basis of eight distinctive kitchen configurations. Homely elements, such as cooking table, sideboard and bookshelves, reflect the diversity of the "kitchen" as a living space in all its facets and demonstrate that it is more than just a practical cooking laboratory.
A library-style lounge area provides space for information and inspiration: as a counterpole to the hustle and bustle of the exhibition, it extends an invitation to visitors to discover the "The kitchen for living in" book: a new standard work that illuminates the kitchen living space in all of its facets!

SCHÜLLER | OPTIMUS — NEW STANDARDS IN DRAWER/PULL-OUT SYSTEMS
Only those who question good ideas make them even better. Schüller's continuous commitment will lead to a major success this year: a new generation of drawer/pull-out generation.
It is not without reason that the new OPTIMUS drawer/pull-out system, developed in cooperation with Austrian fittings manufacturer Blum, carries the name is does: the combination of form and function – which is the result of intensive development work by all process participants – is unique on the market.
OPTIMUS is based on a platform that provides a wide range of options and looks ranging from open rail pull-outs and transparent glass boxsides to the closed metal box cap solution. Among the particular features in the OPTIMUS line-up is an elegantly narrow, cubist frame appearance as well as consistently coordinated colouring in agate grey and carbon grey – a high-quality look paired with practical and technical perfection.
SCHÜLLER | 84.5 CM FOR MORE STORAGE SPACE, ERGONOMICS AND AESTHETICS
The new C5 carcase height of 84.5 cm promises an ergonomic working pleasure and additional storage space. Adding a further option to the existing unit heights of C1 (71.5 cm) and C2 (78 cm), Schüller demonstrates that half a grid can make a huge impact – particularly in the frequently used middle pull-out.
In addition to the existing carcase heights of 71.5 and 78 cm, 84.5 cm underscores the trend towards a live in kitchen with a cubic look.
In the new carcase configuration, the height of the middle pull-out is increased by a semi-grid. The result is a 6.5 cm higher carcase — available in the option with handle — which provides real added value because, particularly in the middle, ideal use can be made of additional storage space. The tried and proven basic grid height of 13 cm guarantees optimum lines that are so typical of Schüller kitchens. C5 also satisfies the highest expectations on ergonomics.
