MAKE THE MOST OF NATURAL LIGHT
“Cooking in natural light can’t be beaten, and there’s something wonderful about sunlight sparkling through the water coming from your kitchen tap,” says Joe Snell. Think creatively about where you can introduce daylight; upsizing existing windows and installing glass doors or skylights can really lift the light levels, and the last can be especially useful if you don’t want to sacrifice potential wall storage space. Window splashbacks are a good option – just ensure the glass is the regulation distance from your hob – while sky tubes are also worth investigating where a glazed roof can’t be installed. Even simple tricks such as banishing curtains or blinds, painting the walls a pale colour, and choosing reflective finishes for your joinery, benchtops and splashback will help to bounce more light around.
