Any interior designer will confirm that shaker-style cabinets are the most popular for country kitchens. The reason for this is because it’s a timeless look that can fit equally well into modern and traditional designs, making it the perfect choice if you don’t want to switch out your kitchen cabinets with every trend.
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.
Sometimes tearing down a wall is not enough to enhance a room’s brightness factor. If your open-plan layout is still too gloomy, consider bringing in French- or bi-fold doors to steal some of the garden’s natural lighting. And if your new layout successfully includes the terrace/patio as part of the open layout, then more power to you.
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.
