Classic tile choices of white can be timeless in style and will never look out of place or go out of fashion. You will be in your kitchen on a daily basis, so you have to choose tiles and a style you are happy to live with every day. White tiles can be fresh and airy, with a crisp and clean look to match the rest of your kitchen. Perhaps your kitchen tiles need to be understated if your kitchen furniture or worktops attract attention. You can still add style through the texture of the tile, or fixing the tiles in a pattern such as brick style, or adding border or decorative tiles to the white tiles which actually gives them more emphasis and definition.
Texture: Depending on the style of kitchen you choose, the texture of the kitchen finish will come in to play. Let's say your choice is a contemporary kitchen, then you will have the choice between a high gloss or matt finish. High gloss kitchens are still very popular, but expect to see more matt finishes in 2011. High gloss kitchens are easy to clean but can show up marks and finger prints quite easily. Matt finishes are easy to keep but don't show up marks as much as high gloss.
Now, current planning has opened up the kitchen to incorporate the social rooms again. New homes almost always have a breakfast/family room completely in view of the kitchen. The Great Room concept is simply a large social room with a kitchen in it. Walls between the kitchen and other rooms are being torn down in older homes in the effort to create multi-task, live-in kitchens. We have actually gone full circle, in a little over 100 years, by creating a modern version of a pre-electricity social/working kitchen.
Now in modern times, we use the kitchen for more than just cooking food of course. It is a place for friends and family to come together and enjoy time as well as eat food together. Our modern kitchens are a reflection on our personalities and of course there still is a certain class divide just like in the good old days, but less prominent. If a person has a lot of money, such as celebrities or wealthy business people, then kitchens in their homes are usually pretty grand. But with modern designs, fitted kitchens, and lots of different ranges, most homes now have lovely kitchens and kitchen renovation certainly has taken off in recent years.
Kitchen lighting fixtures nowadays often include spectacular above cupboard lighting with some great options to choose from. For our kitchen, long arm halogen lights spaced at regular intervals, were perfect, and have proved to be an essential addition, particularly when removing items towards the back of the cupboards! Under the cupboards, above each of the work spaces, we chose a number of evenly spaced halogen lights with triangle-shaped glass covers that perfectly fan out the light across the counter top area.
