Just as fashion has changed over the years, so have kitchens. Designs for modern kitchens 50 years ago were different to what we see today, with the evolution of more technology. Many influences have come from Europe especially Italy, France and Germany. Some people really like to make a statement with their kitchens and go for very bright colours, or unique appliances and accessories. Others prefer a minimalist look and feel, while others still might like the classic or traditional looks.
Combine both of the above with perfectly positioned halogen ceiling lights, directed to the most commonly used areas. This provided us with a safe and well-lit environment around the stove and above the sink and serving areas. The kitchen lighting fixtures used have become a vital addition to our kitchen that we hope will provide satisfaction to our family for many years to come.
Until a few years ago, modernizing a kitchen meant purchasing a new refrigerator, range, a combination sink and painting the kitchen in a bright, shiny white. We have come a long way in only a few years. The most striking aspect of the contemporary kitchen is its color. White has been displaced by more sophisticated colors. Counter space has been increased. Storage has been engineered to provide maximum use of all available space. Everything is within easy reach. Today's kitchen blends into the home. It is not a room apart, but a part of the home's living area.
Experiment with materials! Lately, a range of innovative materials have hit the kitchen industry that have allowed for all kinds of miniature revolutions. Corian is one such material; it's incredibly hardwearing and can be moulded into practically any shape or texture, allowing for glossy scratch-proof surfaces and worktops that seamlessly includes sinks, features, ridges and other useful elements of design. To show case the possibilities, the inventors of Corian teamed up with the designers of Disney's TRON to create incredible, futuristic home interiors purely out of the one material and an extensive use of blue LED lighting. It's not uncommon to source amazing Corian features and work tops and then ordering separate units from say, a German Kitchen and then combining the two. Honestly, look up the 'Corian / TRON' exhibition it's something special.
The main directive when it comes down to how to put into action your kitchen modernizing ideas is to have your budget in clear view at all times and stick to it. Remodeling your kitchen on a tight budget will be tricky but you need to instruct yourself to turn down any ideas that will bust your budget and search around for affordable substitutes.
