The earth and impact on the environment is something everyone takes into account these days. Kitchens are not different - in fact, there are many things you can do to make your kitchen more eco-friendly. If you are asking about kitchen design - what is hot, what is not? Then remember that designs which aren't eco-friendly are out! Besides changing your lighting, you can think about investing in eco-friendly cabinetry like bamboo or wheat board. Both are incredibly resistant, and will give years of guilt-free good use. Leaky faucets waste one of the earth's most precious resources - water! New eco-friendly designs eliminate leaks, and save water with special water sparing designs. These are a must in any kitchen. And on this subject, when you buy kitchen appliances look for those that are energy saving.
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!
New kitchens can be a great addition to any home or apartment and if designed right should make working in the kitchen a joy. There are a few designs which are very popular and nearly all kitchens are based on these basic designs despite how anyone wants to elaborate design wise or in other areas.
