One of the best secrets of the country kitchen is that it doesn’t need to look perfect. In fact, mixing and matching an array of elements tend to make it look better and homelier compared to painstakingly planning every little bit and ensuring that all those pieces are 100% matched in appearance, colour, etc.
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.
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.
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.
