How to plan a country-style kitchen

From choosing the right appliances to picking the perfect wallpaper, our guide is packed full of useful planning tips

Choose the right furniture and fittings

Shaker-style units
A must-have for the traditional country-style kitchen, shaker-style units are ideal for bringing that welcoming family touch to the scheme. Choose cabinets made of wood with aged surfaces and opt for round knobs to add to the country-style feel.

Tongue-and-groove panelling
Panelled walls or units left in wood or painted in a complementary shade are an easy way to create a rustic feel in a country kitchen.

Chunky freestanding furniture
Make the kitchen the heart of the home with a large rectangular table made of pine, oak, walnut or mahogany with wooden chairs or old benches that are similar in style and material.

Opt for a Belfast sink
A deep Belfast sink will add to the period feel of this traditional country-style look. Get the look at Armitage Shanks, or visit Twyford.
