The really keen consumer will likely attend a number of kitchen shows and showrooms before deciding on a kitchen. During that time they'll probably see a myriad of gadgetry that looks great at the time, and they'll want to add this to their own kitchen; one example of this is the 'Intelligent Fridge' that was supposed to order your groceries for you, warn you when you were running low on some items and more. Intel said that 'it will rule the roost' back in 1998, whilst The Independent reported on it in 2000 to say that they'll become a mainstay in future homes. 11 years later, is it that popular? No. In fact many would argue that it went the way of the dodo. They cost some $3,499, that's £2,248.84 to you and I. Why pay that when you can get a modern fridge freezer for under £1000, and buy a special case that allows you to stick your iPad or tablet to vertical surfaces? This would provide you with greater functionality, for a lower cost and you can move the iPad or tablet around the kitchen while you cook or clean. The lesson here is to think about the alternatives and wait... not all innovations catch on.

Kitchen pendant lighting is becoming an increasingly popular kitchen lighting fixture choice for lighting up kitchens. While traditionally kitchen lighting has been bland and uninteresting, often in the form of boring neon lights, pendant lighting can really spice up the appearance of your kitchen. You can get the lights as part of a theme that goes with the rest of your kitchen, by picking similar colors to your kitchen furniture or upholstery. Additionally, there are different types of kitchen pendant lighting based on styles of furniture - for instance, you might have elegant classical looking light fixtures if you have completely rustic or antique furniture in the kitchen, or you could have a more modern high tech look if your kitchen is of the newer ultramodern look.

The middle classes would often use the kitchen as the main family room, whereas the upper classes really used it just as a kitchen and usually allowed the room to be run entirely by cooks and maids. All the things we take for granted now such as running water and sinks, electricity to boil a kettle or light the room, were not so readily available throughout history. In the very early days, people had to carry pots or jugs of water a long way.

This new refurbished kitchen now has matching kitchen light fixtures that not only enhance the theme of our entire kitchen but applies useful beams of light to all the right places. We no longer have dark corners and can now use the entire kitchen, so our careful planning of our kitchen lighting fixtures definitely helped it feel more spacious because of the careful lighting design. We do not have to struggle any more to see what we are doing, when baking, reading recipes, helping with homework, loading the dishwasher, or just peeling vegetables.

I've worked in the kitchen industry for years and yet, nearly every show I go to shows me some new kitchen innovation that I had never previously imagined. Many of the people we speak to talk of having viewed a kitchen showroom, picking a really nice kitchen to have installed, only to see their dream kitchen at the same or lesser price elsewhere. Shopping around and doing your research is important; new innovations appear first at shows, i.e. the Ideal Home Exhibition, 100% Design and the Grand Designs road show. When they do, it takes a while before they are widely publicised and so going to shows is the best way to find out about new kitchen innovations. This is also particularly good, because many exhibitors will sell off their display items for less than the retail price to avoid carting them back to their warehouses and many others provide discounts to people who wish to get quotes from their stands.

Sort out the pictures of your dream kitchens and decide which elements are the must-haves and which are impractical in the scope of your project, either due to cost or space constraints. You'll want to measure your existing kitchen, marking in cupboards, counter tops and windows which will remain stationary.
