The country style kitchen continues to be a popular design choice thanks to its ability to bring a warm, welcoming feel to the space while also giving a timeless appeal. Whether you’ve always had your heart set on the country theme or just want to incorporate some country features with another style, it’s easy to include the country style into your new kitchen while also making the space your own.

If a country style kitchen appeals to you, we’re taking a look of the main features of this design style to give you some inspiration.

Open shelving or glass fronted cabinetry

Open shelves fit in perfectly with the rustic style of the country kitchen and it gives you the opportunity to display crockery and other kitchen items to add warmth and interest to the space. An alternative to open shelving is glass fronted cabinetry which achieves a similar look and again allows kitchen items to be on display.

Neutral palette

A country kitchen is all about warmth and a soft, neutral palette fits in perfectly. Creams and whites continue to be popular with this particular style and the other features of the country kitchen, such as the use of timber, softens any starkness. Many designs also use soft greys and blues with the country kitchen palette to provide something different while also remaining neutral.

Timber accents

The use of timber in the country kitchen softens the design and adds a different texture. Timber can be incorporated with the cabinetry, shelving, exposed beams or flooring. Timber provides a rustic appeal and can offset other aspects of the design by providing additional warmth.

Freestanding oven

When it comes to choosing appliances in the country style kitchen, a freestanding oven is the perfect choice. It not only provides the size you need for entertaining friends and family but is also an element that is associated with the country feel. These days, you can find freestanding ovens that retain some of the old style charm in their design while also ensuring modern functionality – perfect for your new country kitchen.

Island bench

The warm feel of the country kitchen quickly makes it the heart of the home which is why large island benches are a popular choice to facilitate extra seating for family and friend and for easy food preparation. An island bench is a functional addition to the country style design and granite benchtops fit in perfectly with this timeless style.
