Necessary and Trending lighting for Kitchen
Lighting forms a very important element in Kitchen décor not just for cooking but also for the effect it will have as it is the room known for gathering. It creates a much warmer welcome space.
Preferably, do not choose just 1-2 lights for your kitchen.
Instead, substitute 4 small lights in various corners of the kitchen. This is known as LAYERING.
The most apt places for placing lights is near the stove, basin and near the main shelves. This way creates a fantastic ambiance and the right glow. It is one of the most inexpensive ways to make your kitchen elegant.
Some lights help to lighten certain dimensions which add a depth effect to your kitchen. For example: Placing lights between two consecutive shelves gives a depth effect which looks elegant.

Choosing the right slab
Choosing the right marble or the right stone is a very important factor in Kitchen décor.
A very important factor that should be taken into consideration before beauty is the absorption value of the stone. Every stone contains pores that allow liquids and gasses to pass through.
Some of the stones trap these. While choosing the right stone, it is necessary to inquire about the water absorption capacity. The higher is the absorption capacity, the lower is the advantage. The slab should have the capacity to handle occasional spills. For example: calcite reacts to acidic food which causes faster stains on the slab.
Hence, choosing a darker shade of marble or granite is always the best.
Marble has very low porosity and is very suitable for any kitchen. They are also stain-resistant. A polish texture is chosen over the rough finish.
Grey, stone black and brown are some of the famous color choices which are chosen for kitchen marble décor.
Choosing the sink
A sink and a faucet is a must. It is very necessary to choose equipment that will work well as sinks and faucets have to withstand daily use.
Choosing sinks that are made from stainless steel is most preferred. It has under-mount capacity and provides ease while cleaning. Even though stainless steel can be a noisy choice, it is worth the expenditure. While steel is most preferred, iron is the prettiest of all.
Porcelain sinks give a very ancient and aesthetic look to the sink.
A large and a deep basin will help with convenience in washing big vessels and will accommodate more vessels as well.
A kitchen with 2 basins helps with the hygiene aspect and the comfort. It provides symmetry for the kitchen and allows two separate tasks.
The shape of your sink can differ from farmhouse to round sided.
Choosing a sink with a low divider also serves purposes.
Choosing the kitchen furniture
The kitchen is expected to keep in touch with the constant trend. It needs to be equipped with the best technology and trends.
If the kitchen has a big space, then bar stools are one of the most attractive pieces of furniture. It is a very simple piece of furniture.

An attractive fireplace in the kitchen also gives the kitchen warmth.
