State of the Art Kitchens look wonderful but how useful are they?
I am not so sure; I look at the rings on our 15 year old counter and wonder what idiot put a hot pot down there. I look at the finish on the doors and wonder why anyone would put a wood cabinet face under a sink.
If one was going to build the perfect kitchen you might want it to be made of a material that is easily cleaned, like glass. You would expect it to arrived flat-packed to reduce transport costs. You might make it so that there are no glues, just mechanical connections so that it could be easily taken apart and reassembled in a different form.
