There are plenty of ways to add some character to your walls. Opt for a statement clock - we love this old fashioned clock or consider some new wall art. Think black and white prints or typography. And why not display knives that a professional chef would envy with a magnetic knife block? Upcycling is a key part of this trend, especially if you want to add a truly unique accessory to your kitchen design. Try repurposing second-hand chairs, benches or stools with a lick of paint to give your kitchen a stamp of individuality.
Task-specific lighting is important, so that delicate jobs like filleting and icing can be undertaken without having to fight with your shadow: halogen spots provide glare-free illumination for the front of worktops and some extractor hoods incorporate a good light. Meanwhile rows of spots above the counters offer flexibility and efficiency. Regularly used pans and utensils are always within reach - either hanging above or immediately beneath the stove. Industrial units, with adjustable shelves and frames, from which utensils may be hung, provide strong, flexible storage; they can either be fitted or freestanding.
