The future of music hidden in your kitchen

Music whilst you cook is definitely a trend of the future.

MUSIC whilst you cook is definitely a trend of the future.

You used to be lucky to have anything beyond a small FM radio, and Vinyl discs and kitchens just didn’t get along. Then someone invented the CD player and that all changed and social kitchens are now all the rage.

But we soon became sick of piles of compact discs stacked in cluttered kitchen corners and wires from our CD players trailing across kitchen counter tops. Even when sound-docks meant we could play music from our smartphones by simply plugging them into the unit, it wasn’t ideal. You’d have to stop the music to take a call or read a text or email.

But that’s no longer an issue thanks to Bluetooth and the rise of the Sound Bar.

Magnet have taken the popular Bluetooth Sound Bar, a must-have for any music fan in 2014, a step further and have integrated it into the kitchen so it doesn’t even take up any additional space, even in the smallest of culinary palaces.

It’s one of the big kitchen trends of the year – and Magnet is already way ahead of the curve with its integrated Sound Bar.

The kitchen, according to all the experts, is no longer just the place where culinary masterpieces are created. It’s the new social hub of the home, the place where family social lives are planned, where homework is completed and where the 21st Century prefers to do its domestic socialising.

So music is a must. The fact it is out of sight (built directly in to wall-hanging kitchen units so well you could easily miss it if you didn’t know it was there) is a major bonus too.

Check out this fantastic video, with Girl About Tech’s Amy Cutmore, to see the Sound Bar in operation and witness just how integrated into modern family life, and kitchen units, it can be.
