Choosing the right kitchen lighting

By | Seasonal Offers | No Comments

Lighting your kitchen well is the key to showing off your home’s best feature. Dreary lighting doesn’t do shiny new worktops and fabulous flooring any favours at all so it’s worth investigating your lighting options.

There are three main types of kitchen lighting and your choices for each will vary.

Lighting your workspace

The first area that needs attention is where you’ll be working. Illuminating your worktops is easily achieved by installing under-cabinet lighting (which can often be the least expensive option). Alternatively, you can embed spot lights into the ceiling directly above.

Start by identifying the areas in which you plan to do most of your work. These usually include the chopping area and over the cooker.

In these areas, you can use halogen bulbs for a gentle glow instead of a harsh beam of light.

Ambient lighting

A lot of people use ambient lighting as well as more practical approaches. This kind of lighting will usually appear in the centre of the room. Using large fixtures with various bulbs can help you to achieve gentle lighting that reaches into all corners of the kitchen, illuminating darker spots.

Your ambient lighting is best installed with a dimmer switch so that you can control the intensity of the light in the room.

Accent lighting

When you’ve chosen a new kitchen, there may be certain features that you’re keen to show off. If you have a favourite picture or perhaps some exposed brick, fitting bulbs that illuminate these will help draw the eye.

Save energy

When installing new kitchen lighting, it’s a good idea to look into LED lights where possible. If you’re fitting plenty of bulbs, LED alternatives can end up saving you a considerable amount of money. If you’re having your kitchen fitted by a professional, ask them for advice on using LED lighting.

Picking out the perfect worktop material

By | Seasonal Offers | No Comments

It’s the place where most of the magic’s going to happen, so choosing the ideal worktop material is an important step when you’re planning your new kitchen. Which you go for will depend entirely on your personal style and the kind of use your worktops are going to get. Let’s look at the most popular options.

Granite

Effortlessly stylish, granite has long been a popular choice for modern and traditional kitchens. The appearance of granite is slightly mottled, giving it some real personality and making a striking style statement.

The pros of using granite are that it’s extremely heat resistant and very easy to keep clean. Also, granite tends not to stain or be susceptible to water damage. Plus keen bakers will love the coolness of a granite worktop – ideal for rolling out dough!

Wood

The eco-friendly option, wood is one of the most popular choices for modern worktops. The choice of various grains, hardness and finish is what keeps people coming back. Also, wood worktops are very easy to keep clean.

The downside of choosing wood is that it can score easily and get a little water-damaged, especially near to the sink. Applying the right coatings should protect it from most damage but scores are hard to avoid. Treat with care!

Stainless steel

Always popular with chefs, stainless steel worktops are the most hygienic option. Plus they create a super-modern, streamlined effect in more contemporary kitchens. Stainless steel worktops are very durable and strong – but beware of scratches as they mark easily.

Stone

Engineered stone worktops are extremely strong and hard-wearing. Most people opt for stone worktops if marble or granite worktops are a little out of their price range. It has the same benefits of being heat and stain resistant, but it’s a more affordable option.

When installed well by experts, stone worktops can look absolutely fantastic and last for many years.
