Question: How can I upgrade lighting in my kitchen without breaking the bank?

Answer: You don't have to spend lots to create a beautiful and contemporary kitchen. Creative and practical design solutions are the key. Avoid using direct light: diffused light creates a better atmosphere. Use economical flexible LED white tape (£25/metre at Ryness) behind wall cupboards. Make sure you use IP65 for wet places.
