When it comes to kitchen design, it can be important to design a feature or focal point for the space. Natural features can be a good way to add character and charm to any kitchen, contemporary or traditional. But what should you consider when creating natural kitchen features? Well, here at Homematas, we are Preston’s leading kitchen design professionals, and this is our guide to everything you should know about kitchen features that add a natural touch to your kitchen space.

Different options for creating natural kitchen features

So, how can you add a natural feature to your kitchen? Well, there are a number of things you can consider, including:

  • Natural effect worktops- whether you choose a real hardwood or slate worktop, or you opt for a timber effect or stone effect option instead, worktops with a natural visual effect and texture can be sure to draw the eye in any style of kitchen, contemporary or traditional. Try and pair or contrast the worktop colour with that of your overall coloiur scheme. For example, a dark grey or a pine wooden colour can be a great option for white kitchen cabinets.
  • Natural effect flooring- installing a feature floor in your kitchen is another option, and there are a number of different stone and timber effect tiles you can consider. These can be more practical than real solid wooden floors, or real stone floors, as the natural effect tiles are hard wearing, and naturally waterproof. This means they need less maintenance to stay looking great, while protecting your home.
  • Natural finishing touches- natural finishing touches include wooden or metal cabinet handles, and copper sinks or taps. Kitchen accessories can also be useful for this too.

Creating a kitchen with natural features doesn’t mean you have to use wooden cabinets and a traditional or farmhouse design. In fact, contemporary kitchens can suit elements of natural design too.
