Design Spotlight: Country Kitchens

Posted on: March 11, 2011

If you like the look and feel of traditional kitchens but prefer something with a more distinctive style, have you considered a country kitchen? Country kitchens exude that perfect cheerful, rural look while conveying coziness and relaxed charm that instantly makes you feel comfortable and at home!

Country Kitchen Countertops

A variety of materials complement a country kitchen. Natural surfaces such as stone or wood are a great choice, especially in tones of yellow, tan, and navy blue. White ceramic countertops also accent a country kitchen well. With the right lighting and décor, you can achieve a charming summer country kitchen.

Country Kitchen Cabinets

Open cabinets made of natural materials like wood are often found in country kitchens and give off a spacious, airy feel. Country kitchens are designed to be cozy and welcoming, so cabinets painted in natural tones and distressed to look antique are not uncommon because they will look as good today as they will a hundred years from now. While white country cabinets are especially common, don’t shy away from blue, yellow, or green painted cabinets to make your country kitchen unique and in line with the rest of your home.

Country Kitchen Walls and Floors

Not one particular type of floor complements a country kitchen. Try tiled, laminate, or wood flooring – the options are numerous! As for colors, a wide variety of works well for your country kitchen walls and floors. Natural tones like deep brick red and shades of brown, tan, blue, yellow, and white create a nice rustic or Colonial style, especially when they are combined with wood floors. When remodeling a kitchen, many homeowners have recently been looking into engineered wood flooring to ensure their kitchen ties together naturally. When using specific tones in the kitchen, it’s vital that the flooring looks good too. Wooden floors are very popular in homes recently as they can come in a variety of styles and finishes, ensuring it fits in with most kitchen designs. Additionally, how about checkered backsplash or bricks on part of the wall? You have an abundant amount of freedom in designing a country kitchen!

Country Kitchen Sinks

A country sink – whether it’s stone, porcelain, or ceramic – can be the focus of your kitchen. Country kitchen sinks tend to be fairly big and deep and naturally draw the eye. Why not try a round sink? They are quite common in country kitchens. Whether your sink is round or large and rectangular, it can add a touch of unique style to your country kitchen.

Country Kitchen Accessories

Country kitchen décor can be customized to meet your individual preferences! Country kitchens should be cheerful and inviting, with natural light and bright colors. Try a bay window over the sink with short ruffled tier curtains. A few hand-woven baskets or a hanging utensil rack over the island could be the perfect finishing touch to your kitchen. Simple themes characterize classic country kitchens.

Country kitchens are warm and comforting, and they bring to mind delicious meals and a place for family gatherings. If that is how you envision your dream kitchen, this style is perfect for you!
