Is beadboard "country"?
We're gearing up to start our kitchen makeover after tax time, and I'm planning, measuring and drawing up lists of materials.
I have been considering using white beadboard as a kitchen backsplash, as it's a lot less expensive and easier to install than tile and will keep the kitchen bright. The countertop will be cast in place concrete (DIY!) possibly acid stained we will pour it and see how we like it without stain first, and the cabinets are white. Sink is white porcelain and have not chosen a new faucet yet. Floor is chestnut wood vinyl plank.
However I have heard beadboard referred to as cottage but also as country. Our home is a townhouse and decorated in a more traditional-transitional style (never sure where to draw that line) and a little cottage could be OK with me but I don't want to get into country territory.
On a related note, how do you develop/define your style? Our home does not necessarily 100% reflect my style preferences as choices have been influenced by budget and practicality but I'd like to make things more cohesive and intentional over time.
