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.
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.
Laminate flooring is a fast way to recreate the warmth and charm of a wooden floor for less money. Vinyl flooring has come a long way over the years and also available in a wide range of colours and textures.
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.
