By flanking a freestanding island with countertops in an L-shaped formation, there is more than enough access left and actually, a room will look far larger, even with an island in the centre, than if simple linear installations were being showcased. The look of L-shaped designs naturally seems to hug an central 'something' and an island makes perfect sense as the star of the show, especially if a dining area would come in handy, as well as extra storage and an excess of counter surface.
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.
Take a look at this picture, which aptly demonstrates the potential that even a minuscule kitchen can unlock, with wall-to-wall L-shaped counter. What could have been at least two feet of blank wall is now a premium location for a small built-in oven and the corners have been expertly used to stash bulky countertop accessories, such as appliances and fruit bowls. A galley layout would have made the room feel even smaller than it really is, as apposed to creating the illusion of more spaciousness.
Try other ideas like barn-board planking, milled reclaimed wood, randomly placed slate tiles, brick, linoleum tile and cork for your country kitchen floor and see how these go with your choice of cabinetry, colours, furnishings, etc.
