French Style Kitchen
With its open space and island, it’s easy to conjure up images of extravagant meals simmering in the pot while sipping a good Merlot in your French kitchen. The layout lends itself to honest but elegant design, where natural materials come to the fore and blend with simple, sturdy hardware. Countertops are often granite or stone, and high quality woods like oak, cherry and maple are common for cupboards and furniture. Furniture is often antique or antique-looking, so that it blends with the classical but warm feel, and floors can be timepieces that tell a story of wood. The farm table can be central to the overall design, inviting guests to savour the hardy and homey experience of French living.
