Country-style flooring – 10 of the best

11 images

In a high-traffic area such as a kitchen, a floor needs to be able to cope with a lot. Country kitchens are not only aesthetically pleasing, but are a style that’s proven to stand the test of time, and for that reason, it’s a popular choice for kitchens.

Country-style flooring should be simple and unobtrusive, in neutral materials such as brick, terracotta, stone, and plain or painted wood, for a hard surface that’s easy to care for. While wood was once to be avoided near sink and cooker areas, modern engineered flooring is designed to cope with spills and humidity. Stone floors in a honed, matt finish have the added practicality of being slip-resistant, while an antique, tumbled effect creates a sense of heritage.
