The 3 Best Countertops for a Country Kitchen Design

Posted on: September 28, 2015

If you want a custom kitchen, then transforming your cooking space into a country kitchen design can bring a lot of warmth. Country kitchens speak of comfort — that cozy and inviting feel that appeals to so many homeowners as of late. The rise in popularity is entirely warranted, as it blends function and design seamlessly. A country kitchen remodel provides you with a kitchen space that suits your needs and displays loads of personality.

Beginning your country remodel should start at the countertops. Choosing the correct material will determine exactly what feel you’re going for and provide the focus for the rest of your design. This choice can be a bit overwhelming since you have lots of options! But with the assistance of the specialists at Jack Rosen, we hope the remodel will feel less like a task, and more like an exciting event.

Choosing Your Country Kitchen Countertops

Generally speaking, a country kitchen design aims for a more rustic appearance, incorporating strong, earthy tones and stressed or deep materials such as wood or stone. And while you don’t need to stick with the standard, they’re indeed standards for a reason.

1. Wood

Wood offers excellent quality, both in appearance and durability. And it’s highly versatile, coming in a wide variety of hues and finishes. From ash and walnut, to cherry and oak, options abound. This wide base of materials may feel overmuch, but consider how you wish your countertops to tie into your kitchen and the decision becomes much simpler.

We loved the DC-area remodeling project we did (above) with a warm wooden island countertop that gave a cozy, rustic-country feel to the kitchen.

2. Stone

Stone offers similar versatility to wood, with many different types available. Quartz, marble and granite can all be exceptional options, particularly for the homeowner who wishes for a country kitchen that doesn’t feel too country.

3. Metals

This may seem odd, as it’s a bit of a departure from “standard” country kitchen appearances. But we assure you, metals like aluminum, stainless steel, and copper in particular may all have a place in your kitchen remodel. These work great as accents to your design, adding a flair and functionality to your countertops.

Your Own Country Kitchen Design

The most wonderful aspect of a country remodel is that the goal is to create a kitchen that is not a page from a homeowner’s magazine, but is a reflection of your personal tastes. Black cabinets with a distressed finish, butcher’s-block countertops, planked surfaces and deep, cozy tones are all possible in your country kitchen, but the choice primarily resides with you.
