Trendy Countertops, Essential Kitchen Feature

Other than their organic and rustic feel, wood countertops give off the warm feeling you need in a cozy kitchen. They are warm to the touch, gentle to your knives and are the perfect surface for processing or tenderizing your meat. Wood is also a sustainable resource which makes your countertop choice eco-friendly.

Kitchen Cabinets up to the Ceiling

Putting your kitchen cabinets up to the ceiling will make your ceiling look taller. Giving a spacious feel to your kitchen while actually giving you more storage space. More than that, cabinets up to the ceiling require less upkeep than cabinets with an open space above. No more worries when it comes to dusting!

Brass Handles

Moving on to handles. There is really no right or wrong choice when it comes to your cabinet handles, so long as they complement the other elements of your kitchen. So, when looking to complement the cosy elements in your kitchen, brass handles are a great choice. Whether it’s in dark or bright colours, they just give off a homey feeling instantly.

Essential Kitchen Idea, Laminate Flooring

Laminate floorings are inexpensive alternatives for real wood. Generally, wood surfaces create a warm and soft scenery. Along with wooden countertops, laminate flooring is another wood addition that will give a cozy feeling to your kitchen. Especially water-resistant options will make your life easier.

Lighting

Since we spend a lot of time in our kitchen, having good lighting is truly essential. Warm up your kitchen with natural or bulb lighting. Put them in positions that will produce the right angle of light. Spotlights in the ceiling or cabinets are also very helpful in giving them a rich feel.
