Kitchen / June 10, 2018 / Richard Odilon.
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.
The social factor also comes into play with an open-plan kitchen, particularly if it blends in with a living room. For example, one of the kids could be watching TV in the lounge while another is doing homework at the kitchen island, putting you (who’s busy in the kitchen) in close contact with both.
The type of accessories you add to a kitchen also greatly influences its overall look. Sinks in particular are fantastic in carrying the country theme forward, as many country kitchens feature old-fashioned porcelain or stainless steel ones. And seeing as a butler sinks show up in numerous country kitchens worldwide, we’d firmly recommend investing in one.
The time of islands, peninsulas and breakfasts bars is far from over, considering that these surfaces (and their appropriate seating) will continue to ride the trend wave in 2018. It’s all about functionality and practicality. We don’t just mean lessening your carbon footprint, but literally adding greens into your kitchen for 2018. And don’t think you can escape with just a boring little potted plant in the corner.
