Classic country kitchen with beautiful botanical blind

The view onto the garden from this kitchen is framed perfectly by a botanical fabric blind. The glorious green design accentuates the natural foliage from the garden, a great way to draw the outside in. The sink by the window provides the ideal flower-arranging spot.

Oak and green kitchen with breakfast bar and succulents

Layer succulent greens with similar hues – think oak or dark pine for definition and mid-tone sage for a harmonious, textural effect in a simple white kitchen. The stools have been painted in a pretty chalk paint, as matt, non-shiny finishes better suit this natural look.

Country kitchen with open wood shelving

Country kitchen with open wood shelving and pretty crockery

Shaker-style units are great for achieving a country look. But what’s even more country about this room is the open wood shelving with pretty crockery on display. Open shelving makes a space feel less boxed in, keeps objects close to hand and looks pretty fabulous, too.

Spacious country kitchen in soothing neutral palette

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.

Wooden beams are key to this scheme, and part of the island has even been carved out around the central floor-to-ceiling column. Although barn conversions naturally have a traditional feel, this country kitchen has been given a modern spin with industrial-style pendant lights, plus a clean-feeling white backdrop and worktops.

Neutral country kitchen with traditional range cooker

Give a country kitchen a light, modern feel with pale cabinetry and walls. A range cooker is a core part of a farmhouse scheme, so make it centre stage by placing it in an alcove. Shelving above helps to frame it even more. Stone flooring is a hard-wearing material that has lots of natural detail and variation.

Neutral kitchen with plum-coloured island unit

Neutral kitchen with plum-coloured island unit

Add a splash of colour to a neutral kitchen by painting an island unit in a standout shade. Soft plum makes the island the focal point against the neutral units here, but using the same worktops throughout provides a sense of continuity. Wood and metal bar stools lend an industrial edge.

Country kitchen with a Scandinavian touch

Country kitchen with a Scandinavian touch

Take a modern approach to decorating a country kitchen with a grey and white palette commonly found in Scandinavian decor. Natural materials, such as the granite and wood worktops, tie in perfectly with this Nordic take on the scheme. This kitchen has nothing superfluous about it, and is meticulously planned to ensure easy access to cabinets and plenty of space to move around the island.

Blue country kitchen with wooden beams

Blue country kitchen with wooden beams

Go for simplicity in a country kitchen. Vibrant colours and exotic tiles definitely have their place, but here all that’s needed is a pale-blue painted wall to jazz the look up. After all, the wooden beams are such a key part of this space that it’s best not to detract from them. Honey-coloured wooden units are another appropriate choice for a farmhouse kitchen, both for style and practicality.
