The country design has long been a trend in many people’s homes, however, with many modern updates to kitchens the style is constantly being adapted to fit in with the times. However, many of the classic design choices have stayed, with a few added extras. This has made it difficult for people to know what choices to make when designing a country-style kitchen, as they want to keep it traditional as well as contemporary. That is why we’ve come up with a few tips on how to create the perfect country-style kitchen:
Choosing the right colours are an integral part of giving your kitchen a country aesthetic. From neutral colours such as white and beige, to soft, pastel colours such as blues and greens, there is a vast colour palette available for you to create your perfect country kitchen.
If your kitchen is looking for a bit of extra brightness and life, try opting for white or beige. Be careful when choosing white paint though, as you want to find warmer tones as opposed to cool tones to give your kitchen the homely feel that country designs strive for.
Pastel blues are a pretty colour scheme that go perfectly with country kitchens, especially when paired with distressed wood effect and contrasts nicely with beige/white, giving your room a peaceful, calming and modern look.
Rustic and Natural
When it comes to country kitchens, the more natural materials there are, the better. Wooden units and/or work surfaces add an understated but beautiful finish to your kitchen whilst keeping in touch with nature. On the other hand, if you want to further push the boundaries with your design, try opting for natural stone work surfaces or flooring. Natural stone looks amazing in kitchens and gives your room a bit more edge over your standard, more conventional country kitchen.
Kitchen islands are a well-known staple of country-style kitchens. In keeping with the tone of tradition and warmth of the design, kitchen islands are a great place for the family to sit around and socialise together at any time of the day. However, when tying off the look of your kitchen island, it is important to choose the right bar stools in order to keep in touch with the country style. We have a range of stools that perfectly accommodate country designs. One stool that goes particularly well with country kitchens is our white Trento Vintage Bar Stool. This bar stool adds a simple touch of vintage style to your kitchen with its rustic frame and beautifully crafted wooden seat.
One of the more simple ways to add a touch of country-style to your kitchen is by adding simple, traditional patterns that tie off the look of your room. The best way to incorporate these patterns is by adding them into the smaller details, such as choosing a pretty blind to soften the appearance of your window, or investing in some colourful, or patterned, tableware or tea towels that can add the finishing touches to your kitchen without breaking the bank.
