Sleek gloss finishes in fashionable shades work just as naturally as heritage hues and with a contrasting countertop in place, to magnify the practicality of the layout, there really isn't a colour that won;t work in an L-shaped space. From grey, black and orange, the predicted colours of the year, through to bright white and pretty pastels, anything goes.
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.
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.
Any interior designer will confirm that shaker-style cabinets are the most popular for country kitchens. The reason for this is because it’s a timeless look that can fit equally well into modern and traditional designs, making it the perfect choice if you don’t want to switch out your kitchen cabinets with every trend.
