Country-Themed Kitchen Ideas to Inspire You
It’s the very heart of your home. The place where everyone gathers to eat, socialize and celebrate, and yet all too often, it’s the last place we think about decorating. Use these decorating ideas to create a welcoming country kitchen.
Country Kitchen Paint Colors
A country kitchen color palette can be found on walls, kitchen cabinets, storage shelves and more. Look to this core set of colors to get started: milky whites, buttery yellows, farmhouse reds, gingham blues and creamy beiges. Bold colors, like reds and deep blues, look best when adorning your accent pieces, like shelving and barstools. Let the softer colors like yellows and beiges take a more prominent place in your kitchen real estate.
Country Kitchen Tables
Start with a cozy dining room furniture set. A pedestal table and a set of dining chairs provide a friendly spot for conversation and a bite to eat. Farmhouse-style seating can take the form of a big oversized farmhouse table to kitchen stools that take their inspiration from tractor seats. There is one common thread—they all set a warm, welcoming tone.
Store and Organize
Storage options don’t end with kitchen cabinets. A kitchen storage shelf or a rolling kitchen cart in your eating area can showcase serving dishes while adding an element of charm. Storage cubbies and bins provide great places to store essentials in a fun farmhouse-style way. There’s nothing more lovely than a vegetable bin filled with fresh fruit or vegetables. Store them in plain view with a kitchen cubby shelf or wire bins.
Farm Kitchen Decor
It’s easy to forget about decorating your kitchen’s walls. Add whimsical wall signs to a bare patch of wall, even if it’s up high over your cabinets to add character. The space between the top of your cabinets and the ceiling is the perfect spot to add the charm of wall art, farmhouse storage baskets or a crowing rooster. Spruce up your kitchen windowsill with an arrangement of blooming flowers. And don’t forget to add pretty kitchen curtains or tie-up shade on your kitchen window.
Chickens have become popular in country kitchen décor. It is hard to imagine a country-style kitchen without some ode to this much-beloved poultry. From wall art to table linens to countertop canisters, read Country Kitchen Decor Worth Crowing About for inspiration.
