Available in five standard sizes as well as bespoke lengths, the rails are sealed with a thin wax coating to protect the finish. From £90 devolkitchens.co.uk

Scavolini

‘DeLinea’, the latest range from pioneering Italian kitchen makers Scavolini, is a streamlined system that makes a statement without dominating open-plan living spaces. Considered details are central to its concept – the recessed handles have a 45-degree profile for an improved grip, and along with plinths (often overlooked), shelves and breakfast bar supports, can be finished in an array of lacquers and metallics including brass (pictured), making it easy to create a coherent space. From £10,000 scavolini.com
