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!
Knowing basic principles about kitchen design can be useful at any time. Sometimes changing the place of appliances can make a big difference. Whether renovating a kitchen or planning a new one: Do not to rely on architects or professional kitchen planners. They cannot know the habits and requirements of your family as you do. Only you can understand what you really need and what fits you and your budget.
The food theme is the most famous theme that is widely used by all kitchen-remodeling professionals. You can think of a specific food like coffee or vegetables or apples to make your kitchen look good with the relative colors. The theme must be reflected in the walls of kitchen, countertops, and cabinets as well the kitchen appliances. For example the fruit theme in the kitchen would need deep red and bright green colors to reflect the theme whereas the coffee theme would attract dark brown and creamy white colors. Likewise, you may select region themes and that may reflect your long desire of visiting a particular country. For example a kitchen with French theme would have bright yellow color denoting sunflowers, lush greens and bright reds. Flooring of the kitchen completely depends on the theme you choose or the wall and cabinet colors of the kitchen.
