Surface-mounted light fixtures were the standard choice for most general kitchen lighting from the early 20th century into the 1980s.

If your kitchen has open shelves, add LED strip lights or puck lights to the back or underneath the shelves. This will create light to highlight objects on the shelves.

This kitchen has all the hallmarks of vintage cottage style: bin-style pulls, exposed hinges, inset flat-panel cabinet doors and drawers, open plate racks, and glass doors in some of the upper cabinets. The comfortable familiarity of the cottage look cleverly disguises modern amenities and functions: Custom drawers hold double dishwasher drawers to the right of the sink, vertical storage keeps trays and baking sheets in order, and extra-deep drawers stash cereals and snacks. An island made out of rustic alder stained to a rich, dark finish and topped by honed black granite anchors the clean white cabinetry and subway-tile walls.

Some of the main perks being: environmental (use of steel over wood), easy to clean, extremely sanitary (which is why they began in commercial grade kitchens), and durable (aside from potential scratches). If solid stainless steel cabinets are out of your price range, then there are options of MDF cabinets that are layered with steel over top. Either way, stainless steel can be an amazing addition to your modern kitchen.

Cleaning baked-on spills from the cooktop has always been a challenge, but several options make short work of them.

These hardwired under-counter lights are 24" long, but there are several other lengths available, from 9" up to 36".

Kitchen Appliances By Brandon Lambert. vens/Stoves: When considering an oven and stove, think about how you typically cook and if you’re a novice or an experienced cook. The oven or stove you choose can have a great impact on how you cook and whether the energy you use to heat them is worthwhile.

Wall ovens separate from cooktops let you create several cooking work stations instead of just one.
