Choosing between a glossy finish or a honed finish for the island countertop can make all the difference to your kitchen’s ambiance over time. A polished, glossy finish definitely is more appealing visually, and it reflects light fabulously to give the kitchen a stunning focal point. But marble countertops with a glossy finish etch easily when exposed to acidic materials, and if you are not careful, the whole thing can turn into a big mess within just a few months. Honed marble on the other hand is already etched and hence far safer, but the downside is that it stains easily!
Modern pendant lights are quickly becoming fascinating works of art. Apart from offering ample illumination, they seem to bring along with them beautiful balance and contemporary style. With an amazing array of pendant light designs now on offer, the lighting above your kitchen island need not look dull and boring anymore. While there are several lighting options available for every kitchen, elegant pendant lights that offer much needed ‘task lighting’ clearly steal the show.
Sleek and stylish pendant lights can complement your kitchen’s Shaker Cabinets which disappear into the walls. There are others that match the metallic tinges of aluminum surfaces and shiny kitchen countertops to offer a sense of continuity. An essential thing to remember is that there is no ‘one solution that fits all’.
