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.
When your kitchen has a high ceiling then a single ceiling lighting fixture may possibly not be enough to illuminate the whole room. Think about special types of lighting arrangement for different parts of the kitchen such as; under shelf lighting, pendants, chandeliers, semi-flush lighting, or recessed lighting if you can afford to have that done.
Keeping people out of the kitchen is very easy to do in your design, just make it difficult for them to get in. Use a wrapping countertop with just one (1) countertop opening into the kitchen, and locate that opening in the most difficult spot to enter the kitchen. This, along with the \"open floor plan\" is the most effective way to prevent unwanted kitchen traffic. The single kitchen entrance will psychologically keep them out of the kitchen zone, while the open floor plan (no walls) allows you to communicate with family and guests, while keeping them out of the kitchen.
