Do you still have fluorescent lighting in your kitchen - well if you want the latest in kitchen design - and to know what is hot, what is not - fluorescent lighting is definitely not. One long globe casting a harsh light over the kitchen was never an idea that combined style with utility - it's not something you use because it's beautiful - it's simply utilitarian. The latest in kitchen design is LED's (light-emitting diodes) which use less than half the electricity of fluorescents and can last 10 times as long. As for what is hot in kitchen design - the newest buzz is on 'accent lighting', and layered kitchen lighting. Chandeliers and pendants are as in as you can get for task lighting, along with lighting for cabinets. These do the job, and add style and ambiance to your kitchen. When it comes to lighting, fluorescents are so last century!
The other essential thing that can enhance the white theme of your kitchen is to add textures. You can select place mats that have different and interesting textures in order to add lots of interest in the kitchen. You can even choose single color texture and then carry it to different areas of your kitchen. This will help in tying the overall effect of the textures into your kitchen. For example you can use the floral textures or arrangements in your kitchen at different areas.
Mark the main traffic routes on a plan and start from there. If you have a small kitchen with a lot of doors, it might be helpful to consider closing one of them to reduce traffic and gain more space. It is also important that the kitchen has an easy connection to the dining and living space. Most of our free time is spent in these areas and a good design can improve your family life a lot.
