Country cottage style living

In response to the fast-pace of everyday life, there is a clear trend towards the peace and the conviviality of the rural interior. Is the country cottage style right for you? Then find more inspiration here.


To find cottage style interiors you no longer have to live in a farmhouse in the countryside. You can just as well run into the cosy country look in a villa, loft, townhouse or apartment. The style is very popular nowadays, and that’s easy to understand: it creates a casual environment that is lovely to come home to after a busy day at work and absolutely wonderful for people who like cocooning.


Style features

The basic ideas behind the country style are friendliness and informality. Cosy sitting areas, where you can talk quietly in cushy sofas lined up around the central fireplace and surrounded by a mix of soft pastel colours, comfortable materials and flocculent fabrics. Authentic furniture and decorations cannot be missed. Open cabinets and solid wooden shelves are perfect for displaying your personal decorative elements. They give your living spaces their identity and create atmosphere.


The ideal floor

Obviously a hardwood floor fits in perfectly with this picture of warm domesticity. After all, no other floor coverings radiate the same warm hospitality. But what type of wooden floor should you choose if you want to integrate the cottage look in your building or renovation project?

The choice of a parquet floor is very personal, but experience tells us that three types of wood floors have a clear edge in country style interiors:






Floors with character

The engineered floors from the Lalegno CLASSIC collection emanate warmth and character and therefore lend themselves perfectly for use in rooms with country-style décor. Their individuality is expressed through particularly beautifully finished knots and attractive natural shades.

Beautiful wood structure

Multilayer flooring with a robust and rugged appearance is often preferred. Distressed floors and flooring types with tactile structural elements are very popular (as in the ANTIQ-, BARN- or RELIEF-collection). Moreover, in these collections the emphasis is often on the width of the boards, which heightens the country feel in your home.

Soft colour palette

Wood flooring in neutral, natural wood colours take the upper hand and form the perfect basis for your cottage interior. Also soft white hues or floors with a slightly grizzled look provide stylish accents.
