Country Kitchens – How to Create Your Own

Country Kitchen

The kitchen is the heart of the home and you must feel happy there.  A country style kitchen can suit any property and not only those in the country.  Think homely with freestanding furniture, shaker units and a big rustic table in the centre of the room and you have your country kitchen.

Country kitchens can fit any style, whether you want elegant, rustic or retro.  If you have a high ceiling and beams this style can really create a focal point in the home.  Contrasting features such as colourful worktops or a totally different style island really works well.

Using Colour

Soft tones are great in a country kitchen.  Pastel blues, sage greens, creams and white all look great. You can then accentuate different areas with pops of colour such as some glossy tiles in a contrasting shade. White walls with coloured appliances is also a good mix and looks stylish.

A classic country kitchen style can be achieved with beautiful stone flooring, countryside colours, a dresser and a Smeg fridge.  Warm wood worktops make the kitchen very welcoming.  A country kitchen can still be modern with granite worktops and all the mod cons.  Quarry tiles finish off the look and are hardwearing and attractive.

Freestanding furniture works well in a country kitchen.  A Welsh dresser alongside fitted units and shelving gives a functional kitchen with lots of storage space.

How About an AGA?

A kitchen range or AGA looks great in a country kitchen.  You can make a feature out of it by putting a different colour or texture as a splashback.  To finish off the look you can add curtains or blinds and crockery, either matching or contrasting.  Hanging mugs, utensils and pans can look great and means everything you need is close to hand. 

To summarise a country kitchen can be whatever you want it to be.  There are no fixed rules except that it needs to be warm and welcoming.
