Experiment with materials! Lately, a range of innovative materials have hit the kitchen industry that have allowed for all kinds of miniature revolutions. Corian is one such material; it's incredibly hardwearing and can be moulded into practically any shape or texture, allowing for glossy scratch-proof surfaces and worktops that seamlessly includes sinks, features, ridges and other useful elements of design. To show case the possibilities, the inventors of Corian teamed up with the designers of Disney's TRON to create incredible, futuristic home interiors purely out of the one material and an extensive use of blue LED lighting. It's not uncommon to source amazing Corian features and work tops and then ordering separate units from say, a German Kitchen and then combining the two. Honestly, look up the 'Corian / TRON' exhibition it's something special.
Kitchen lighting fixtures nowadays often include spectacular above cupboard lighting with some great options to choose from. For our kitchen, long arm halogen lights spaced at regular intervals, were perfect, and have proved to be an essential addition, particularly when removing items towards the back of the cupboards! Under the cupboards, above each of the work spaces, we chose a number of evenly spaced halogen lights with triangle-shaped glass covers that perfectly fan out the light across the counter top area.
