Kitchen / June 27, 2018 / Richard Odilon.
How about changing the flooring, choosing hardwearing (and easy-to-clean) tiles for the kitchen, which flow elegantly into the lounge’s wooden floor? Alternatively, opt for the same flooring throughout, then add definition with different rugs. Other ways include varying the ceiling- and floor height between the different zones, or placing a furniture/décor piece like an open bookcase in-between the spaces.
With needs accounted for, the more specialist kitchen installations can be mapped out and chief amongst them is the plumbing. In any kitchen renovation project, the position of the sink and electrical appliances needs to be given serious thought, as there is a rule of thumb that states how far apart they should all be. In terms of plumbing, it is always a nice idea to locate a sink in front of a window, where at all possible, as that allows for a pleasant view while carrying out chores and means that external drains can be easily accessed as well. Of course, if a kitchen island design is going to include the main sink, plumbing will be a little more of an obstacle, but any professional will be able to navigate the project simply.
When imagining a classic country kitchen, plaid and tweed patterns may come to mind, but remember that your options include many others. Stripes, florals and woodland/farm animals are also fantastic to ensure a touch of character, which can be displayed on tea towels, oven gloves, tea- and coffee cups, backsplashes, window treatment, table cloths, upholstered chair seats, wallpaper, etc.
So, how do you go about accomplishing this without resorting to a cluttered look? Consider adding glass doors to your cabinets so everyone can enjoy your beautiful collection of plates, bowls and mugs. And instead of hiding those aprons and cloths in a drawer, hang them up on a few wall hooks (their colours and patterns are sure to enhance the country look even more).
