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.
Understandably, given the recent surge in popularity, there is a school of thought that L-shaped kitchens are merely for more modern or starkly contemporary homes, but that doesn't have to be the case. In fact, though this layout might seem like a current day solution, it works intrinsically with classic carpentry aesthetics, to create a harmonious and beautiful finish.
Although it’s true that a lot of country kitchens opt for white as the main focus colour (it helps to make the room look more spacious), nobody is forcing you to do the same. By all means, bring in some brighter tones for added style and character, but don’t go overboard. Try and stay in the neutral realm (off-whites, creams, soft greys, etc.), and even add in a natural hue or two (like soft mint green) if you feel like it.
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.
