A front door that rotates on a swivel box rather than traditional side hinges is a chic and fresh modern idea that is widely used today. Swing doors exude a cool, contemporary feel, but whether they’re suitable for your home is another question.
Revolving doors are primarily used for high-end and custom homes, and they benefit from two converging trends in residential construction: homes with a greater connection between inside and outside, and ever larger doors to accommodate this type of lifestyle.
The doors offer many advantages. In addition to a seamless, optimized appearance, they offer smooth operation. The door panels can be made much wider, the total area being larger than a side-hinged door.
One problem that comes with some hinged doors is warping. Swing doors swing up and down at a point that does not restrict warp movement in the door. Most doors will definitely stay sturdy, but since wood is a natural product, it can freely assume any shape that can pull the fabric of a door into a chain.
One of the biggest drawbacks to using a revolving door is its cost – it’s up to 30 percent more expensive than a combination of a door and a sidelight and, by some estimates, twice as expensive as a single standard-width door.
If your budget and style allow doors like this – just go for them, they look stunning and very fresh. They are a great facility and a way to connect with the outdoors.
The modern peasant style is very popular: it is a fresh take on the traditional rustic style and such rooms look very inviting. If you want to decorate your home with this style, this round up may be helpful: we've put together some tips and ideas for decorating country kitchens.
Colors and materials
Rock a neutral color palette: white, creamy, beige, gray, off-white, tan and other and of course natural colors of wood and stone that may be present in your farmhouse, to be precise, wood is one of the key materials and stone is optional, but it will add coziness. Bricks can also be used to accent walls or create backsplashes. Real or decorative wooden beams on the ceiling are a great idea to bring out the style of the room. The countertops are entirely up to you, although butcheblock and stone are the best matching options.
The cabinets in your country kitchen can be more modern or vintage - it depends on what feeling you want to create. You can easily renovate the existing cabinets by hanging new doors and restoring or replacing the countertops. Prefer neutral upholstery (if any) and whitewashed or reclaimed wooden tables, sideboards and sideboards. A kitchen island is a must for a country kitchen. It could be a large or small piece, a vintage wooden table with a stone top, or whatever item you think is appropriate here. The hood can be clad in reclaimed wood or even aged metal for a vintage feel.
Lights and lamps
You can hang a gorgeous statement chandelier in a rustic vintage style, or at least imitate that style. Accentuate your kitchen island with additional pendant lights and additional built-in lights above the countertops if you want. Vintage industrial lamps can also be a nice alternative to rustic ones, they go perfectly with the country house style.
