The latest kitchen trend isn't a trend or a style - it's a 'livability'.

Since function is the key, primary element in designing kitchen space anyways, this makes sticking to the the fundamentals of vital importance.

Of the many design essentials in creating your extremely livable kitchen, ample light and lighting are requisites. What's more, proper layering of this design element is critical in assuring that you achieve the look you desire and, one that 'lives well'.
