Three ways to add statement to your kitchen are in the kitchen island, the lighting and with statement taps. Statement pieces will add a rich layer to the room and this will enhance the space and increase the enjoyment you gain from the space both in daily life and when entertaining.

Kitchen Island

A contrasting kitchen island is an easy way to create a bold statement.  The contrast could be the colour or the chosen finish. For example, use Rempp’s Lami Compact Stone-Slate in dark grey to anchor the island and give solidity. Contrast with Una Alpine White door finishes for other kitchen furniture. Connect them with a smooth white corian worktop. This combination gives a mix of colour and texture that creates interest and makes for a stylish kitchen with interest and charm.

Dramatic lighting makes an eye-catching statement. It can be equally functional as it is decorative.  An obvious place is over the island unit. An over-sized single fixture in a shape to reflect the island is a good example.  Alternatively, use three pendants in an accent colour or warm metal.

Choose a style to compliment the style of your room.  Clean lines work with simplistic schemes or opulent fixtures for a luxurious setting.


Taps are a sure-fire way to add some wow to your kitchen.  Feature taps are becoming ever more popular and there is no shortage of options.

Metal finishes come in a wide choice from brass to satin silver, copper and rose gold. Pair the finish with similar finishes of hardware within the rest of the kitchen.

2020 offers stylish taps that are durable with advanced performance. They have everything from spray functions to the ability to boil and emit sparkling water. They are the new kitchen must have.
