Wooden worktops are also greatly encouraged for country kitchens, but do keep in mind that wood always requires a little more maintenance that other materials. Even the tiniest of spill needs to be cleaned immediately, not to mention regular oiling to keep those wooden surfaces looking fresh and new. A quick sand and polish is ideal for removing everyday scratches and dents.
It can be tempting to fill a large room with more furniture or cabinetry than is needed, but by aligning with an L-shaped design, the clean lines, airiness and generous proportions of a kitchen can be amplified and enjoyed. Take this room as a prime example. There's a plethora of room, which could have all been swallowed up by extra cupboards, but by installing the storage and counters in an L-shape, the centre of the room is left free and clear for a stylish island and a pared back finish. It simply works so well.
So many people are now waking up to the potential that an L-shaped kitchen can add to a home, thanks to the natural way that far more counter space can be enjoyed, as well as a generous floor plan. While a U-shaped room layout is often a little more 'normal', there is a lot going for these significantly more clever installations, which is why professional kitchen planners have been witnessing an increase in the number of clients seeking to create something simpler but still functional.
Whichever material you opt for, always consider the width of the boards and/or the size of the tiles for your kitchen flooring. Think about how your kitchen units and appliances will sit on them – if the floor lines aren’t parallel or perpendicular to the plinths, it can look strange.
