Country Kitchens Are The Real Deal

Monday, March 26th 2018 7:33pm

Country kitchens are hugely popular right now across the UK so if you are renovating your kitchen space this may be something that is of interest to you. The move towards country style kitchens is due to the fact that consumers love the traditional, authentic feel of them and as they often incorporate the kitchen island it makes them very much the way to go as more and more people want kitchens for both cooking and entertaining in.

Kitchen Islands Are King

Designing Country Style KitchensAs Anya Cooklin-Lofting writes in a recent Independent Article `The island or peninsula counter is the modern, social homeowner's answer to the reversal of traditional, formal dining." It is this notion of the social homeowner that is key to the increase in commissions of country kitchens, even in the last couple of months---`

`Now more than ever, the kitchen is a family-centric gathering space. Tom Howley, the creative design director of the eponymous kitchen company, puts this down to the popularity of island counters. Almost all of the kitchens his team of craftspeople create feature island counters, regardless of the dimensions of the space. Howley says he has designed and created kitchens with island counters that only account for 20 per cent of the worktop space, but boast 95 per cent of the usage.

Of this eye-opening inclination we possess to use these grand central platforms as primary worktops, the designer says, "the kitchen is becoming a dual-functional space for cooking as well as eating. Not only this, but the kitchen is also a homework base, a relaxed office space and a home bar. A wide island counter or baker's table will provide a generous and welcoming gathering place, especially when lined with barstools."`
