Nothing makes your house more charming than a country style kitchen. Whether you live in the North, South, East or West, use these seven inspirations to create your very own dream country kitchen.
7. Vintage Farm Sink
Instead of installing the typical stainless steel sink in your kitchen, look for a vintage farm sink. This will add so much character and southern charm to your kitchen, not to mention they typically have much more space for washing dishes than the kitchen sinks this day in age.
6. Vintage SMEG Refrigerator
Adding a vintage refrigerator to your kitchen will really take you back in time and give your country kitchen an antique feel. Choose a muted white color so that the sink will blend into your kitchen. Use bold red if you want a pop of color. This fridge is definitely a great conversation piece, too. Country star Jake Owen has a vintage SMEG in his tour buses.
5. Wooden Beam Ceilings & Rustic Lighting
From the rustic stove, exposed wooden shelves, hints of copper, and large windows to let in the country air, this kitchen screams country. What really makes this kitchen stand out is the exposed wooden beams and the rustic farmhouse style chandelier over the central island.
4. Exposed Wooden Shelves
Adding exposed wooden shelves with metal hardware to your kitchen not only gives you more space for dishes and decorative pieces, it adds that rustic feel that is essential to knock that country kitchen look out of the park.
3. The Breakfast Nook
Coziness is essential for a country kitchen. Instead of opting for a farm table and chairs — which also works perfectly in a country kitchen — try a nook or booth-type seating area like this home. You can surround a wooden farm table with plush benches and pillows to make family gatherings close-knit and casual.
2. Floor-to-Ceiling Wooden Walls
Instead of painting all of the kitchen walls, this home owner decided to add a floor-to-ceiling wood wall for extra southern character. We can basically smell the fresh cheddar biscuits in the oven.
1. Country Accents
When it comes to creating your beautiful country kitchen, it’s truly all in the details. Adding colorful and earthy accents such as bright beaming sunflowers and fruits and vegetables will make your kitchen authentically country.
