    I'd choose pendant lamps with either glass (1st choice), chrome or grey shades. Glass would not impede the view to outside. Something like these attached photos.

    Hello soflo_moo,
    the paint is Little Greene lead 117 in Oil Eggshell.
    Credits should go to Pedro da Costa Felgueiras of Lacquer Studios who developed a daring and successful colour scheme for the project in close cooperation with our Client.

    Hello, the floor is finished with coursed Yorkstone slabs from Ribble Reclamation.
    Client wanted a mixture of buff & grey tones, so they laid out the area in the stone yard and numbered each flag, to reduce labour cost & time on site

Save a saucepanEver let a pan of rice boil for too long only to be left with a black, burnt mess at the bottom of your saucepan? If you (like many of us) have been there more than once, this tip might well be a life-changer.Avoid the fruitless task of scrubbing the pan with a scourer and get out your bicarbonate of soda instead. Use a sightly damp cloth to wipe away as much of the charred bits as possible, then half fill the pan with boiling water. Sprinkle in three tablespoons of bicarb and give the solution a mix. Leave the liquid to do its job for 24 hours, then rinse and wash the pan as usual.

Fasten a railThe area above the hob is the ideal spot for tools you’ll need while cooking. Try installing a pot rail like this one to hang all your culinary vessels. The beauty of a rail is its flexibility – it’s easy to add extra items along the bar, or take them away. This one is full of pots, pans, sieves and colanders.

Work your worktopsDeep worktops and island surfaces can be used to store and display attractive and regularly used items, too. Here, a sleek stainless steel toaster and food mixer stand at the back of the worktop of a dresser-style unit, and the smart pestle and mortar looks right at home perched on the island.

Mix up your cabinetryThis kitchen’s units are all cast in the same on-trend grey hue, but it sidesteps predictable symmetry by mixing two dressers in different styles. They work together, but have different-depth drawers and storage options. A rail for pots and pans adds to the unconventional mood – perfect for an inspired cook.

Hang up in a rowA classic metal ceiling rack for hanging up shiny pots and pans is the perfect partner to a traditional range cooker. Pair with a dresser-style unit comprising a mix of deep drawers and display shelves for taking care of toasters, blenders and the rest.

Continuing that natural theme, the kitchen is timber and designed in keeping with a basement of the original period. That means square panels, beaded corners, tongue and groove panels behind the sink, and pots and pans hung up above an imposing stove. The fridge-freezer and dishwasher have been stored out of view in the utility room, making this a space devoted to cooking and family meal times.

This kitchen’s cabinets are all the same trendy gray, but they sidestep predictable symmetry because two pieces are different styles. They work together, but their drawers have different depths and storage options. A rail for pots and pans creates more variety.
