Create a cosy, cottage style kitchen
A kitchen is the ideal place to use this checked fabric as it will bring a country style look to your room. Try using it for a roman blind or for seat pads. You can mix with striped fabric or use on it own. To bring a French country style look to your kitchen cupboards remove unit doors and make curtains to hang there instead - this is also a great way to revamp old and tired units.
Choose country style accessories such as wicker baskets for your fruit and vegetables, enamel jugs full of flowers and pretty china.
It's also possible to buy gingham in oil cloth which is a great practical option for a tablecloth as it is easy to wipe clean.
