Kitchen / March 18, 2018 / Richard Odilon.
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.
As a kitchen is a working zone, you don’t want the extra dining/living space to meddle in with your cooking and baking activities. Think about where guests will be seated while you busy yourself with food prepping – will there be space for a breakfast bar, keeping family and friends close yet still out of your way? Will you move your living room’s chairs and sofas to ensure an easy flow of conversation between seating- and cooking spaces.
Quality stone and wooden worktops are the standard choices for the country style kitchen. Should you pick stone, avoid options too bold or shiny, as these generally don’t go too well with the rustic look. Granite, for example, can style up a country kitchen perfectly if it’s in a natural shade like brown or cream, but avoid black.
Got enough legroom in your kitchen for a few furniture pieces? You’re in luck, as those tables and chairs are going to help bring in the country design superbly. Similar to wooden cabinetry, certain common choices appear regularly, and maple, oak, cherry and pine seem to be the most popular ones. For table- and chair legs and back supports, think rich detailing, like ornate wooden carvings. You know the saying “less is more”? That does not apply to the country style.
