Classic tile choices of white can be timeless in style and will never look out of place or go out of fashion. You will be in your kitchen on a daily basis, so you have to choose tiles and a style you are happy to live with every day. White tiles can be fresh and airy, with a crisp and clean look to match the rest of your kitchen. Perhaps your kitchen tiles need to be understated if your kitchen furniture or worktops attract attention. You can still add style through the texture of the tile, or fixing the tiles in a pattern such as brick style, or adding border or decorative tiles to the white tiles which actually gives them more emphasis and definition.
As technology evolved, the iron stove was introduced. These stoves rather than being an open fire were closed in and this made cooking more efficient. By the late 19th century gas cooking was much more common. Cities started to build pipes, sewers and other forms of infrastructure, which made life a little easier, and meant that a consistent and reliable source of gas could be had. But kitchens were still nowhere near the modern day kitchen and often the kitchen room was also used as a bathroom or sleeping room.
Go to shows! I've worked in the kitchen industry for years and yet, nearly every show I go to shows me some new kitchen innovation that I had never previously imagined. Many of the people we speak to talk of having viewed a kitchen showroom, picking a really nice kitchen to have installed, only to see their dream kitchen at the same or lesser price elsewhere. Shopping around and doing your research is important; new innovations appear first at shows, i.e. the Ideal Home Exhibition, 100% Design and the Grand Designs road show. When they do, it takes a while before they are widely publicised and so going to shows is the best way to find out about new kitchen innovations. This is also particularly good, because many exhibitors will sell off their display items for less than the retail price to avoid carting them back to their warehouses and many others provide discounts to people who wish to get quotes from their stands.
