Small L-shaped kitchens shouldn't be seen as a compromise when they work as well as they do. Though there are a number of suggestions as to the best way to get value from a modest kitchen, an L-shaped layout will really seek to maximise all those areas that tend to be dead space, such as corners.
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.
What’s quiet, durable and softer underfoot than hard tile or concrete? Cork, of course! It’s also quite the sustainable option, as cork trees take only nine years to regenerate. And thanks to its natural texture, it’s one of the best slip-resistant options.
Hectares and hectares of fresh, green fields being glimpsed through the window; cows and chickens peacefully trotting around outside, adding to the homely ambience… these images are synonymous (in our creative minds, at least) with good old country style kitchens, conjuring up a vision of home-made bread, warm coffee and a simple way of living.
