U-shaped kitchen designs were once the epitome of a covetable kitchen layout, but it's all about the L now and to that end, homeowners have been experimenting, to make this layout a little more custom and personal. A tried and tested way to add extra pizazz to an otherwise functional room is to add a healthy dose of colour and L-shaped installations soak up unusual hues like a sponge.
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.
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.
Naturally, a standard rectangular table will work exceptionally well also, thanks to sharp corner angles and long stretches of straight lines, but an L-shaped table really does add a touch of wow-factor that is impossible to ignore and helps to trick the brain into seeing an extra prep station. This is particularly useful when a choice between a table or an island has to be made.
