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.
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.
Understandably, given the recent surge in popularity, there is a school of thought that L-shaped kitchens are merely for more modern or starkly contemporary homes, but that doesn't have to be the case. In fact, though this layout might seem like a current day solution, it works intrinsically with classic carpentry aesthetics, to create a harmonious and beautiful finish.
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.
