Kitchen worktops - With a style that focuses on tiles and bricks, solid wood worktops are a great way to add more warmth and character. Darker woods, like cherry and walnut, work well in the industrial kitchen and they will develop over time – the colour becoming deeper as the years go by. They are thick and come with square edges, for a truly authentic and visually stunning look. If you want the look of wood with no specialist care required, check out our wood-effect laminate worktops – they are hard-wearing and come in several effects other than wood.
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.
