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.
Take a look at this picture, which aptly demonstrates the potential that even a minuscule kitchen can unlock, with wall-to-wall L-shaped counter. What could have been at least two feet of blank wall is now a premium location for a small built-in oven and the corners have been expertly used to stash bulky countertop accessories, such as appliances and fruit bowls. A galley layout would have made the room feel even smaller than it really is, as apposed to creating the illusion of more spaciousness.
It’s thus no wonder that kitchen flooring get overlooked far too often, shoved aside by appliances and textile-planning instead. And don’t get us wrong: these factors are important too, yet if you’re planning on designing a kitchen from scratch or giving your existing one a major overhaul, yet don’t plan on including a professional floorer in the process, the end results are bound to be dismal.
We recommend going with solid wood, in-frame doors for a quality finish. You then have the option of leaving the wood in its natural colour (with a varnish or wax finish), or splashing on a fresh coat of paint in the appropriate colour (just remember our tips from number one).
