Cleverly positioned lighting can also hide a multitude of sins. It can make a small kitchen appear larger, disguise awkward architecture or compensate for poor natural light.
Stone floor tiles come in such a wide range of sizes, colours and textures that they can complement any style of kitchen, from country to contemporary. Maintenance-wise, even the best quality limestone is porous, so it will inevitably suffer some wear and tear. Having said that, the latest sealants are very effective, and once applied the floor should be easy to maintain.
Carcases are the units onto which doors and drawer fronts are attached – the internal framework of your kitchen. They have a structural role in terms of supporting the worktops, and of course provide storage and appliance housing. Only visible when doors are opened, they’re easy to overlook, but poor-quality carcases will have a massive impact on your kitchen’s longevity and performance.
Accent lighting might consist of lighting on shelving, in cupboards or in niches. Lights built into the plinth of a central island or a single run of units gives a gentle wash of light across the floor to make the cabinetry look like it’s floating, while a run of LED lights under the rim of an island worktop makes this is an inviting space to be drawn to, especially if there are bar stools here.
