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.
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.
Take the chairs, for example. In modern kitchens, the dining chairs will be identical, yet the country style is completely comfortable with different chairs surrounding the table. This also counts for cabinet handles and hardware – different ones will ensure some charm and give it a carefree and effortless look.
What’s more, wooden floors are a superb investment if you ever plan on selling your house. It’s a tried-and-tested option that can withstand decades of use and is ideal for open-plan rooms. Its drawbacks are that it can be prone to the occasional scratch, as well as vulnerable to moisture.
