Renovating the kitchen gives you the perfect opportunity to integrate a range of lighting solutions. Rather than just thinking about your general ambient lighting which will light the entire area, also consider whether you want to incorporate feature lighting to add to the overall aesthetic and task lighting underneath cabinets or above benchtops to make food preparation easy.
One of the many reasons that glass splashbacks are a popular choice is down to how hardy they are. It is very difficult to break toughened glass – in fact, it’s quite a process to even attempt to break one! Strong force on the front of the splashback itself will not cause it to break. Heat applied to the glass will also not have any effect on it. The only way toughened glass can be broken is to hit it with excessive force on a certain edge, which once installed is usually protected by surrounding cabinetry or walls. Once broken, it will not explode into dangerous shards, but rather cube-like pieces which are safer to handle.
Although the trend towards neutral colours in the kitchen has been going for some time, it’s not looking like the popularity of grey or white palettes as the main colour in kitchens is going away. A predominantly neutral colour scheme means that your kitchen doesn’t clash with the rest of the house and blends in nicely with the surroundings. It’s also a timeless choice so you’re less likely to need to update in the near future.
In your initial plan, it might look as though you’ve given yourself plenty of bench space but you need to remember that small appliances, kitchen sink and cooktop all take up room. Make sure you have plenty of room for food preparation and easy entertaining. In particular, give yourself bench space between your sink and cooktop as this is one of the most utilised areas in the kitchen.
