Creating A Warm Kitchen
There’s a somewhat timeless appeal to a country kitchen that never goes out of style. While sleek, contemporary kitchens may look ideal for a short while, it’s the most traditional kitchens remind us of our childhood, or that of our grandparents and stuff us full of nostalgia. It’s funny how the aroma of a roast dinner or the tantalising fragrance of baked cookies can bring us back to innocent times. And so the allure of a country kitchen remains and will plausibly always be a classic choice for countless homeowners wanting to bring a bit of warmth to their homes.
But how do you insert a bit of country into a kitchen and deliver it that comfortable warmth that makes it all so appealing?
Paint Your Cabinets
A simple paint job can make your kitchen look stylish and modern while still maintaining country charm by using soft blue or green tones for your cabinets.
This is an outstanding choice for traditional kitchens, never dates and can work in a more modern country environments too.
Butcher Block Worktops
If you are the kind of person who loves to see perfections in imperfection, then a butcher block worktops could satisfy. They are simplistic to care for – regular oiling keeps them looking wonderful – but many will agree they love the scuffs and marks they develop over time.
Hang Some Plates
Both functional and good-looking, using a display case to create a beautiful scene with your patterned plates will create a casual look, perfect for country style kitchens. It also lets you enjoy your prettiest dishes every day without having to use them!
Hang Up Your Pots
A traditional or country kitchen just craves for pots and pans to be attached overhead. This makes them obvious to find, rather than taking up valuable cupboard space and looks fantastic at the same time!
Add A Solid Oak Farmhouse Dining Table
Lucky enough to have a large kitchen? Then why not contemplate a stunning oak table to inject some country charm into your home? Everybody knows that the hub of the house is regularly the kitchen, this is where people tend to gravitate when hosting. So welcome the warmth of the kitchen and contemplate adding a table so everyone can enjoy the most social room in your home.
