Country kitchens are a mixture of different textures, colors, prints, and patterns. They make good use of natural materials whenever possible, as well as textures and materials that have been shaped and affected by people. When it’s time to select a floor for your Country kitchen, you have several options to choose from.
There are many different hardwoods that are perfect for the Country kitchen. Wide-plank yellow pine is always a nice option, because its soft finish patinas and weathers beautifully over time, showing the family’s history in the house.
Hand scrapped boards are also a nice choice for Country kitchens. The hand scraping results in a textured floorboard that has a rustic appeal, and many hardwoods finish beautifully this way including maple and hickory.
There are several different types of Country kitchens, and there is no better floor for the French Country kitchen than limestone. These rough-textured stones have been used in French farmhouses for centuries. Unlike other limestones, they are extremely tough and durable and they can withstand years of hard use without aging in the slightest.
Complement Your Kitchen
Ultimately the floor you choose for your Country kitchen should complement the rest of your décor. Look for materials and colors that match what you already have going on to get the most cohesive look.
