The kitchen is the heart and soul of any home and is where majority of family's spend the most time. This also means that accidents are more likely to occur especially when the flooring for the kitchen is unsafe. There are many reasons why the flooring for the kitchen can often be the cause of dangerous accidents. Cracks will occur when flooring begins to get old, these cracks might cause an accident, were someone to trip over one. However, the biggest problem with the flooring for the kitchen is its smooth surface. When building kitchens beautiful tiles are often used for the flooring. These tiles are often extremely slippery, even if nothing has been spilt on them. In order to protect your family from slipping on the flooring in your kitchen you need to take the necessary action. Purchasing a non slip coating for your floor is the only way to do this.
To Distress Or Not To Distress? When it comes to installing stone kitchen counter tops, Granite tends to be the material of choice because it is so durable. Marble is much more likely to chip and break and it is more at risk form the day to day kitchen accidents like broken glasses and spilled food or wine. Granite is much more able to withstand this type of ongoing punishment and is far less likely to fall victim to staining like Marble is. Some people actually see this as positive thing in relation to marble. They like the aesthetic effect of a little bit of wear and tear on their counter tops to give a slightly vintage look to them, in such the same way as people often do with intentionally distressed clothing. Marble is quite often likened to a fine wine which gets better as it matures. One of the main benefits of Marble is that it is completely waterproof and will not suffer damage from steam or splashes from washing dishes. However, to really prolong its life the stone does need to be sealed by a professional. This needs to been repeated every so often to maintain the seal. The manufacturer should be able to offer advice about how often this needs to be carried out.
Eco-friendly Lighting: When it comes to going green in the kitchen, you should choose your lighting carefully. When you choose the lighting for your new or remodeled kitchen, you can use products that will keep to the green theme. First, look to the types of bulbs you will use. Fixtures that have CFL bulbs rather than incandescent bulbs use one quarter of the power. LED lights can reduce energy consumption by 80-90%. Lamps and fixtures that use LED lights are usually built exclusively for that type of bulb. CFL bulbs can be used in any fixture that accepts a regular incandescent bulb. In addition to artificial lights, also consider the use of skylights and sufficient amounts of energy efficient windows in your plan. By making natural light readily available in your kitchen, you can significantly reduce the need for artificial light sources, at least during the day. You may also want to consider solar powered options for lighting.
