Delightful Ideas for a Country Kitchen Makeover

If a kitchen makeover is in the cards, turning it country style is one charming renovation you can think of, with no big fuss! You can either redo your whole kitchen to evoke memories of big family meals in grandma’s home, or just sprinkle a few flourishes to whip up the rustic charm.

Bring on the classic rustic appeal

A good mix of hard wood/stone floor tiles, ceramic wall tiles, exposed cabinets, wicker accents, flea market finds and vintage lighting will make up an eclectic mix; together they will typify a country kitchen with an air of permanence, though imperfect. Potted herbs, botanical prints or hanging garlic strings bring the country kitchen to life.

To evoke feelings of warmth and nostalgia, fashion a kitchen island and shelves out of distressed wood to exude a lived-in look.

What’s a country kitchen without roosters, duck, or geese? Look for them on glazed platters, sugar canisters and coffee mugs. Line them up on wooden shelves coated in milk paint.

For a truly country theme, set up deep, old-fashioned, porcelain or stainless steel kitchen sinks; they would absolutely be stylish and functional.

Open shelving in white is sure to carve out the charm of a country kitchen. Make up the open cabinet space to show off your collectibles and antique shop finds.

Choose a scalloped hood for a bit of chic country charm.

Position a hanging rack above your prep island to keep things up and away, with easy access. Let your pots and pans go in there. A wrought iron pot rack can add character to your kitchen with a subtle element of drama. You get to free up extra cabinet space too.

Accent the natural look, playing with certain fabrics and patterns for curtains, table spreads and placemats. Gingham and plaid are commonly used patterns to recall fondly the farming traditions of country kitchens. Fresh floral printed fabrics round off the country flavor.

Contrary to widespread perception, country kitchens are equipped with appliances such as range cooker, double oven, vintage toaster and refrigerator for a sense of luxury; that will enhance the look of your kitchen space in truly retro style.

Go big on natural elements

Construct kitchen furniture from intricately carved wood. Cherry, maple, oak and pine are top picks. Pine is the topmost choice for its uniquely knotty and natural look.

Copper colored pots and pans blend to keep up the rustic theme.

Look for a vintage table in distressed look or an antique butcher-block countertop to serve as a prep island.

Coordinate honey colored wooden units with wooden beams on ceiling to jazz up the look.

Accent with colors

Choose colored stove to pop out against the white cabinetry. Make liberal use of your favorite color to make a happy working spot for you and for the family to unwind together. Throw in a bright patterned rug to heighten the impact to your white kitchen.

For a quirky charm in the country kitchen, choose an assortment of old, colored stools with interesting carvings.

Go for soft and muted tones in earthy colors to replicate the colors taken from a rural backdrop.

Wallpaper the back of open cupboards with folk-inspired prints. Show the world your collections of handmade ceramics and pottery in true style.

Vintage bar stools, brushed pendant shades and a mix of colorful artwork hung on the wall are fresh and fun additions to keep the rustic theme going in an instant. If you are interested in more customized ideas that suit your personality, check with a reputed professional remodeling firm.
