One of the most versatile types of floor tiles, porcelain tiles can be made to look exactly like anything from concrete to wood. As porcelain is maintenance-free and highly durable, very often these tiles are more resilient than the materials they mimic.
There are lots of variations to choose from: Small, compact fluorescents or LED under-cupboard downlighters are slim enough to be recessed into the bottom of overhead units. Flexible LED strip lighting mounted on the underside of cupboards is another option. Or, ceiling-mounted lights, flush-fitted for a streamlined, modern look, with directional spots and the right beam width to create a focused light are a practical alternative.
The flooring you choose for your kitchen should complement your units and worktop, so either go for a coordinating look with a material that matches your worktop, or create contrast.
As well as simple on/off switches, dimmer switches are great for creating a soft, ambient glow by decreasing power to the light source or better still with a wealth of light sources at your disposal and different functions to cater for, it is wise to consider a flexible control system.
