Christina Haack Shares The Kitchen Design Trend Everyone Will Want In Their Home

Christina Haack has been a fixture of HGTV design since starring on "Flip or Flop" in 2013. The real estate investor flipped homes with her then-husband and always looked to do something creative with the designs. Whether it was choosing a bright tile or installing marble slabs all the way up to the ceiling, Haack always pushed the boundaries of the design and wasn't afraid to try new trends.

Now, on her show "Christina on the Coast," Haack works with clients to transform their spaces to better fit their style as well as their function needs. And one room that clients always seem to want to be remodeled is the kitchen, which is the perfect example of the combination of aesthetics and function (via Realtor).

Many people are adding technology to their kitchens to help manage their lives and make working in the kitchen easier. Hidden charging stations and touch-activated faucets are two popular pieces of technology that people should add to the kitchen to improve function, says The Kitchen Company. But high-tech kitchen appliances are also sought-after. After working with one couple, Christina Haack has found a new piece of kitchen technology she says will be a design trend everyone wants.

The smart hood might be the next big thing

Smart appliances have made kitchens much more organized and functional. From fridges that can manage your grocery list to ovens you can hook up to Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, there are plenty of appliances that make the kitchen experience easy. But there is another appliance that Christina Haack sees as the future of kitchen technology: the smart hood. According to Realtor, one of Haack's clients is the one who brought it to the designer's attention.

The smart hood is just like a regular range hood that removes smoke and helps ventilate the kitchen. However, this one includes a smart screen. The Kitchen Hub by GE gives you access to over 5,000 recipes that you can follow as you cook, and you can add your own recipes as well, according to GE Appliances. But beyond the ease of cooking, you'll also be able to manage other smart devices and appliances like your lights and coffee maker. The Kitchen Hub allows you to access a calendar, video chat with built-in cameras and even use entertainment apps like Netflix or Spotify you can use while cooking. With all these incredible features and a convenient location, it's not hard to see why Christina Haack sees this as the next big trend.
