It is true to say the best way to set the scene in any room is lighting and the kitchen is by no means the exception. With the trend for kitchens to be the area where we cook, eat and generally congregate, the lighting needs to cater for the variety of uses. Ceiling spot lights turned to full brightness whilst the chef is at work or dimmed to create an ambient feel when dinner is served. Under cupboard and over unit lighting enhances the lighting options, as well as aiding the chef during food prep or homework! Plinth lighting creates a atmospheric feel to the room and why stop there… when you can have colour changing lights!
For a small investment light switch and plug faceplates can update a kitchen. There is an extensive selection of finishes available on market from metallic, ceramic, wood, glass and coloured acrylic. One of the images below features an electric fan heater integrated into the under unit plinth. A good solution for heating a room where wall space is not available for a standard radiator.
Weather you are looking to have a new kitchen fitted or simply to make some improvements there are some great ideas to consider.
