Country Kitchen Designs Ideas: Some kitchens are made to be admired at a distance; country kitchens are made to be used. Their down-to-earth style and lived-in looks make country kitchens among the most comfortable and inviting rooms to be in. Farmhouse sinks, beadboard panels, and open shelving are trademarks of country kitchen designs. Knotty wood cupboards or painted and glazed cabinets with simple styling provide a traditional country feel that’s not too stuffy. Popular cabinet styles include the standard raised panel or beaded flat panel cabinet doors with a simple frame.
Sometimes rustic and often cozy, country style kitchens have a timeless and natural appearance. Wide-planked wood floors, antique brass hardware, knotty pine furniture, and antique knick-knacks all contribute to the casual atmosphere of the country lifestyle. When we think of “Country” we often think of “Americana.” Collectible Coke bottles next to an American flag, a lantern sitting on a shelf, and images of roosters glazed on platters and mugs… all these can bring to mind the old American dream of a “home on the range.
