Pendant lighting is an interesting and fun way to add a bit of color in the kitchen. Since most contemporary kitchens prefer a minimalistic and highly ergonomic design, they can at times appear too sterile. A dash of vivid color in the form of exceptional pendant lights that sport an inimitable design can break the monotony. They also offer some flowing curves in a kitchen that otherwise sports only ‘clean and well defined’ lines.
Butcher block offers a look that is elegant yet casual and environmentally friendly. Her soft surfaces mean that some maintenance is required, but nothing that will take up any significant amount of time. Cutting should be left to be done on cutting boards. A nice butcher block surface should be sealed and oiled about once a month. Cleanup is easy, requiring simply mild dish detergent and a light cloth or sponge. The only potential negative is that the surface, if not well maintained can dry or crack and excess water should always be wiped off. There are many kinds of woods with varying thicknesses available. Butcher block is another well priced option.
Pewter is actually an alloy made up of several metals. It is fairly soft and not as sturdy as say, stainless. It will show nicks and dents so one must take some care when working on this surface. It has a beautiful look and offers a more gentle look as in contrast to the more clinical look of its stainless counterpart. Pewter’s dark silvery color is muted and is not brash like chrome. Because it is a softer material it is easily shaped and stamped. A hammered antique look would mask some of the natural dents and dings that naturally occur on many kitchen surfaces. While the look of pewter is more of a traditional one, it could look right at home in a more modern or eclectic setting.
