KraftMaid Cabinetry and House Beautiful have team up to display the latest kitchen trends via the Kitchen of the Year 2012, which is on display in New York’s Rockefeller Plaza. The kitchen is open to the public from July 16-20 and will serve as the set for a host of presentations and demonstrations, most notably by Mick De Giulio, a top kitchen designer.

The kitchen itself is a 1000 square foot (impressive) and fully functional. It was designed in a traditional style and features — as you’d expect — a number of the latest and greatest from KraftMaid, including a Butler’s Pantry with a popular line of cabinet door styles, varying heights of cabinetry with Slate stain and polished nickel hardware and accents.

There will be plenty else to see in the cutting edge kitchen space, like a new cabinet and drawer closing system and a cabinet safeguard for under the sink basement that makes clean up easy and protects against spills and stains.

Sounds like the Kitchen of the Year is going to be worth checking out. So if you are in the area, be sure to check it out!
