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
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.
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.
