The kitchen is the beating heart of the house, it has its own characteristic atmosphere and it is essential that it responds to the different needs of those who live there. For this reason at Cersaie the attention to the design of the kitchen goes hand in hand with the interpretation of its spirit : classic or modern, rustic or technological, small with corner or large with living room.
The Cersaie Fair, which will take place at Bologna Fiere from 26 to 30 September 2022, represents a reference point for producers and visitors interested in the use of ceramics. Great interest is collected by the furniture itself and from the finishes of the kitchen.
At the International Ceramic Exhibition, visitors can meet numerous exhibitors specialized that, from the corner cooking of a house to the kitchen of a restaurant, they are able to propose solutions suited to the different design needs. In this context, the use of ceramics represents one of the most suitable solutions. It is a highly modern, durable, performing and above all refined material, because it responds to the needs of a constantly evolving market in search of aesthetics, practicality and safety.
Participating at the International Ceramic Exhibition means having an exchange of ideas and getting in touch with professionals from all over the world. The event becomes a meeting place with media and journalists of international importance to illustrate the current trend and future prospects of the ceramic sector, also in the field of kitchen furniture.
This allows producers belonging to complementary sectors, exhibitors and operators, to become part of a commercial network to understand the main excellences of the market and get to know the experts in the sector. The Fair promotes an environment full of stimuli useful for growing your business.
For many years Cersaie has been considered an example of seriousness, quality and professionalism by Italian and foreign companies. As proof of this, last year 62,943 Italian and foreign visitors (30%) were welcomed, interested in the world of ceramics and kitchen furnishings and finishes. The fair offers to the various visitors the opportunity to learn about ceramic material, characterized by a productive virtuosity that manifests itself not only in the design of the kitchens and in the choice of the best raw materials, but also in the environmental sustainability objectives that the various companies want to achieve.
The fair is aimed at those looking for solutions for one of the most practical and functional areas of the living area and offers functional and long-lasting quality products. During the visit to Cersaie it will be possible to be guided by the materials displayed by the exhibitors and to view ceramic kitchens in the most disparate styles, always in line with the latest trends. It is a total experience that integrates with the most innovative ceramic production techniques, interested in giving greater durability to the product.
The training that visitors to the fair can benefit from is also synonymous with quality, infact 10 Pritzker Prize winning architects held their lectio magistralis on the Cersaie stage, demonstrating the importance that the event has in the world of architecture and design.
This year the trends in ceramic for kitchens focus more on giving a young design, with pure lines, dressed in cool colors and finishes in line with the trends that seek a welcoming but also professional environment, and that look to the natural look of the environment.
For kitchens with modern furnishings, the Zen style is certainly one of the most wanted. It follows the rule of having very large spaces, minimizing the presence of furniture in the room. The use of an open space with living area allows light and air to circulate freely within the environment. Another requirement is to use geometric ceramic tiles, suitable for creating an interesting movement, but without producing overly dynamic effects. A rigorous and minimalist style, enriched with evocative suggestions and contrasts, perfect for furnishing a professional kitchen.
Rustic or urban style is also decisively inserted, characterized by the use of raw ceramic tiles that are combined with exposed beams, shelves with a tubular frame, copper finishes and chromatic contrasts of concrete, parquet and steel. Precisely the meeting of materials from different styles, contexts and eras, makes urban kitchens an opportunity to create a youthful environment but with personality, refined but welcoming.
Modern classic kitchens, on the other hand, focus on a timeless aesthetic. Designed starting from the research of traditional materials such as ceramic, and then inserting modern elements related to home automation with high tech details. In line, corner or horseshoe, they are often made actual by the presence of the kitchen island, especially in the case of small kitchens with little space available. In this case, light-colored ceramic tiles are strictly preferred to optically enlarge the environment, comfortable and practical to meet the frenetic needs of contemporary living.
The 110% SuperBonus is an incentive measure introduced in 2020, then extended until 2025, which aims to make residential properties and accommodation and hospitality facilities more efficient and safer. The ceramics sector was one of the beneficiaries of these concessions. The international ceramics fair fully recognizes the importance of the innovations introduced by the Superbonus 110: last year the "Superbonus and incentives for ceramics" conference took place at Cersaie , in which the importance of this fiscal measure has taken on the national market.
Another incentive, which can be combined with the Superbonus, is the 2022 kitchen bonus, extended for the whole year and extendable to kitchens for products covered by the tax concession. In fact, it allows citizens to recover 50% of the amount spent on the purchase of a new kitchen over the years. All expenses incurred for the purchase of the hob, oven, sink, pantry, table, chairs are included in the bonus. But also, of appliances of energy class not lower than A + such as refrigerators, freezers, dishwashers, microwave ovens, electric hot plates and ovens.
These incentives create a virtuous mechanism, all those involved are able to derive an advantage: the citizen can renovate the house for free and choose the quality of the material they prefer, the company can increase its turnover thanks to the greater volume of work, and finally the state can make homes more efficient and safer and support increased employment and income.
The deduction of the Superbonus 110% is due to citizens who own or hold a non-residential or residential property within an apartment building, at the time of the renovation works or at the time of incurring the costs. As for the entrepreneurs, these are among the beneficiaries in the hypothesis of participation in the expenses for interventions carried out by the condominium on the common parts.
Thanks to the residential bonus it is possible to guarantee tax incentives useful for redeveloping homes and condominiums. The legislation introduces new details that help to orientate between the various tax relief measures. Knowing it properly is important, especially regarding the use of ceramics in individual housing units and in common condominium spaces. This is because the incentives for materials are different depending on the living environment.
Thanks to the hotel bonus it is possible to guarantee tax concessions useful for redeveloping accommodation and hospitality structures. All the information relating to the benefits of Superbonus 110 in the tourism sector is introduced into the tax legislation, always with particular attention to the use of ceramics in the renovation. Examples of beneficiary structures are agritourisms, hotels, bathing establishments, marinas and spa complexes.
The mobile bonus is a facility that can be used by taxpayers who carry out or have carried out renovations, starting from 1 January 2020. A deduction of 50% calculated on a maximum amount of 10,000 euros for the year will be made possible in 2022 and € 5,000 for the years 2023 and 2024, referring overall to the costs incurred for the purchase of furniture and large household appliances.
