Although wooden floors are the traditional choice for country kitchens, the 21st century has introduced other (more eco-friendly) options that are also worth considering. These will still ensure that rural look you desire, albeit with minimum maintenance requirements.
But like all things in life, proper planning is crucial if you want the end result to work, and an open-plan kitchen is no exception (why else do you think professional kitchen planners are so busy?). So, before you start swinging a sledgehammer to demolish a wall or two, first see what it takes to have (and style up) an open-plan kitchen.
Incredibly durable, bamboo is less likely to gape than other solid woods. Usually pre-treated by the manufacturer, bamboo flooring can be stained or left in its natural colour, ensuring you a wide array of options.
What’s quiet, durable and softer underfoot than hard tile or concrete? Cork, of course! It’s also quite the sustainable option, as cork trees take only nine years to regenerate. And thanks to its natural texture, it’s one of the best slip-resistant options.
