Considerations in Country Kitchen Design

Detail, detail, detail

Unlike modern kitchens, Country Kitchens are much more detailed and elaborate, giving them a lovely traditional feel.

Functionality and practicality

Drawers are in, so make good use of them by having large pot drawers to store bigger items.

Hand painting

This can really enhance the style of a country kitchen, giving it a shabby chic appearance.

Timber finish

Is recommended for cabinets, benches, tables, chairs and flooring in a country kitchen. However, it’s possible to bridge the gap between traditional and modernity using vinyl with a timber grain look in a lighter colour. Don’t be scared to modernise the design by keeping things a little more simple.


Patterning like checks, gingham and floral designs are one of the major signals of a country kitchen. Doors in timber, vinyl or hand painted finishes are beautiful features in a Country Kitchen.

Colour schemes

Colour schemes in a country kitchen are generally natural, utilising the brown of timber and its adjacent colours like greens, yellows, and oranges. White, especially white-painted items, are also common in country kitchens. Black, blue and purple are rarely used in country kitchens.

Natural and traditional materials

Complete the look with a laminate, stone or feature timber benchtop. Wrought iron basket weave handles or knobs are most popular.

Design nuances and additions

  • Use open shelves for display items
  • Opt for lace curtains, or at least lace inner curtains
  • When you add artwork and ornaments, look for naturally inspired items
  • Bring fresh flowers into your country kitchen regularly
  • Look for old advertisements or food packages in antique shops
  • Oil lamps are a decorative (though not really useful!) addition to a country kitchen
  • Traditional plate racks and bread boxes are a charming addition to any country kitchen.

Then all you need to do is gather some willing souls to try your home baking in thecountry kitchen!
