What Houzz contributors are saying:
Using lots of white always helps a kitchen feel more seamless and open, especially when it’s the finish for the cabinets themselves. In this example the white upper cabinets and white ceiling blend together to de-emphasise how large the cabinets are, giving the whole room a light and airy appearance.Clever ways to work kitchen cabinets In other rooms
Space your fixtures evenlyYou now know your wattage and the number of can lights your room needs, but spacing them evenly is just as important. Measure at least 60 centimetres off all your walls onto the ceiling to start. Aim to divide your can lights around the room evenly and leave at least 60 centimetres between each fixture. Of course these are general guidelines, and you may need to do some tweaking depending on the space. Focus on balance and don’t worry if you need to remove or add a can light to get it right.Tip: If you live below another apartment and your ceilings are concrete, you will not get a registered, reputable electrician to install any new ceiling lighting, as it can compromise the structural integrity of the building.
Double ovenOvens separate from the cooktop offer homeowners more flexibility with their layout. Also, many people prefer raised ovens rather than having to bend down to use a stove-oven combination. It’s definitely better on your back! If you’ve got room for this arrangement and can find a spot for your microwave, this is a great setup. In a kitchen like this, a microwave drawer hidden on the back of the island is a great solution. The main sink on the island allows for the sleek electric cooktop to be located on the back wall.Variations: Double ovens typically come in 24-, 27- and 30-inch (60-, 68 and 76-centimetre) widths; the overall heights vary.
