Country kitchens are a warm, comfortable, and casual look for your home. Whether you’re interested in completely renovating your kitchen or you’re hoping to add a few country details here and there, these characteristics of country kitchens will help you create the perfect space.
One key element of country kitchens is the use of natural materials. Use a mix of different types of wood and stone materials to create a layered and interesting feel.

Sinks can really set the tone of your kitchen. Farmhouse sinks or old-fashioned porcelain sinks are popular choices for country kitchens.
Country kitchens typically have an open and airy feel. Stick to lighter cabinets and colors.
The fabrics you bring into your kitchen will make or break the overall style you’re going for. Country kitchens traditionally use gingham, toile, and plaid fabrics. Tablecloths, curtains, chair covers, or even dishcloths can help create the country feel.
Part of the overall design of a country kitchen is using everyday items as decor. Open shelving or pots and pans hung in the open are some of the ways you can do this.
