But like all things in life, proper planning is crucial if you want the end result to work, and an open-plan kitchen is no exception (why else do you think professional kitchen planners are so busy?). So, before you start swinging a sledgehammer to demolish a wall or two, first see what it takes to have (and style up) an open-plan kitchen.
Patterns may come to mind, but remember that your options include many others. Stripes, florals and woodland/farm animals are also fantastic to ensure a touch of character, which can be displayed on tea towels, oven gloves, tea- and coffee cups, backsplashes, window treatment, table cloths, upholstered chair seats, wallpaper, etc.
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.
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).
