In fact, in medieval ages, peasants did not have their own kitchens. Public kitchens were used and only the rich or wealthy had their own kitchen, usually with a cook. It is a world so far removed from our modern way of life, and so fascinating. Cooking was mostly done over an open fire and was obviously a much lengthier and harder process than we are used to today. Fires were used to keep warm and to cook and food was obviously very basic. But even our earliest ancestors enjoyed sharing a meal with others and it has always been considered a social event, even in the early days of mankind.
Rustic or country style kitchens use tiles to complete the overall look and feel of the room. Rustic tiles tend to be matt, neutral colours. Matt tiles have a more natural feel to them, as they absorb light in the room like stone in the natural world does. The edges of tiles may be rounded or wavy. Rustic charm encourages wholesome feelings and a friendly, welcoming atmosphere. A combination of tile colours can add to the feeling of the room, such as warm orange, muted gold, beige, almond, olive and sage greens and cappuccino brown. Rustic tiles will match kitchen cupboards that are white or cream panelled or wooden, work tops that are butchers block would also suit a country style.
Although the development of these facilities reduced the cooking activities of many people, people's interest in remodeling and maintaining their kitchens still remained. This ultimately led to the field of kitchen designing and remodeling. Designing an open kitchen has certain advantages. Such a kitchen design helps the cooks interact with the guests and cook at the same time. It might also prove to be a platform for creative cooks and chefs who could show their abilities and cooking performances to an audience. But for these kinds of kitchens, there may be some difficulty faced by designers in kitchen remodeling.
