Happy New Year!! I hope your Christmas was wonderful and happily full of love, laughter, as well as true and lasting joy. Welcome back to the very last in the series of Georgian Kitchens: Get The Look, where we’ve been learning about:
Today we’ll be delving into getting the look of a Georgian Style Kitchen through the use of symmetry.
It’s hard to underplay the incredible effect that symmetry brings. Yes, it’s extraordinarily pleasing to the eye but symmetry also brings a sense of order, space and strong design to any kitchen.
Georgian design draws heavily on symmetry, which is why, from the smallest cottage to the largest Country pile, Georgian kitchens ooze charm and grace from every nook and cranny of their beautiful bones.
Easy ways to achieve this symmetry are to include a large over-mantel above a range cooker, with matching cupboards either side. However, if possible, make sure to include another larger feature, such as a larder, to create symmetry within the whole room too, as demonstrated beautifully in the Martin Moore kitchen below.
Ideally, on every side of the kitchen, there should be a feature, which has obvious symmetry, whether that’s floor to ceiling cupboards either side of an American fridge freezer, or a double Butler’s sink, or even a beautiful window. This will undoubtedly bring visual peace and calm…
…and who would ever turn that down?!!
Take Care Until Next Time,
