Spacious country kitchen in soothing neutral palette

Choose traditional kitchen units with plinths and an ornate carved mantel if you want a classic country-house look. Paint them in off-white shades that create a calming scheme and maximise the sense of space. Don’t neglect colour altogether, though – the blue island adds a lovely colour injection here.
