Are you planning to do a country kitchen? Country kitchens can be just as elegant as any modern or contemporary kitchen. These kitchens are known largely for the using lots of wood elements in the design and architecture. As it relates to colors, pastels are very common, and help to create a warm and homely kitchen. Traditionally, butcher’s blocks are used for countertops in country kitchens, however, for increased elegance, marble or granite may be used.
Contrary to popular belief, a suburban home, villa or farm house is not the only home in which a country kitchen will stand out. Townhouses, apartments and condominiums in the city can follow this design style. If executed well, a country kitchen in the town will help to take your mind off the industrial and stressful nature of city living.
How do you go about transforming your existing kitchen? If you are not in a position to change out the entire kitchen from top to bottom, you can rely on accessories to help you out. Brightly colored cookware displayed on racks hanging from the ceiling is a great place to start. Fancy artwork of the countryside and farm animals will help to create the country atmosphere you desire. Feel free to set up an area to openly display your fresh fruits, vegetables and produce from the farmer’s market.
