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.
Open-plan living has become part and parcel of the 21st century. Think about all the various ones you’ve seen, both in real life and in design magazines / websites: a home office seamlessly connected to the living room; a bedroom sharing its open space with a bathroom; and, perhaps the most popular one of all, open-plan kitchens beautifully blending in with an adjoining dining room or lounge, or both.
Hectares and hectares of fresh, green fields being glimpsed through the window; cows and chickens peacefully trotting around outside, adding to the homely ambience… these images are synonymous (in our creative minds, at least) with good old country style kitchens, conjuring up a vision of home-made bread, warm coffee and a simple way of living.
Quality stone and wooden worktops are the standard choices for the country style kitchen. Should you pick stone, avoid options too bold or shiny, as these generally don’t go too well with the rustic look. Granite, for example, can style up a country kitchen perfectly if it’s in a natural shade like brown or cream, but avoid black.
