Traditional kitchens 'becoming more popular' ★★★★★
Tastes are changing and homeowners are once again looking to traditional kitchens for inspiration.
This is the view of interiors expert Claire Warrington, who said the traditional country-style kitchen is growing in popularity.
She pointed out that in recent years, homeowners have preferred clean, minimalist kitchens to complement the modern decor in their other rooms.
But now, the traditional kitchen is making a comeback and families are reverting to natural materials to create a cosy atmosphere.
Ms Warrington also insisted that the country kitchen look can be achieved in large or small rooms.
"Traditional kitchens are places where real design statements can be made and traditional natural floor can be dressed up with cottage style rugs," she remarked.
"Lighting is another area where you can add different mood tones and smaller spot lights can be added to the units to add different mood changes."
