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.
Kitchen lighting fixtures nowadays often include spectacular above cupboard lighting with some great options to choose from. For our kitchen, long arm halogen lights spaced at regular intervals, were perfect, and have proved to be an essential addition, particularly when removing items towards the back of the cupboards! Under the cupboards, above each of the work spaces, we chose a number of evenly spaced halogen lights with triangle-shaped glass covers that perfectly fan out the light across the counter top area.
Now we have a choice of so many designs and layouts, accessories and appliances, we can create pretty much any kitchen we want. Open plan kitchens are becoming more popular if you are lucky enough to have the space. Modern appliances and so many colours and products mean that you can have the kitchen of your dreams much easier.
