A country kitchen is one of those looks that never seems to go out of style. The traditional look is cozy, functional and the heart of the home.
That being said, gingham curtains and ducks in bonnets have been replaced by more modern decor – metal accents, rustic wood and open shelving. It’s all about lots of texture, details and tradition.
There’s not just one way to design a country kitchen. The look can be more rustic, farmhouse or even modern. Elements like an apron sink, wooden kitchen island or blue cabinets can be part of a kitchen that is more weathered, detailed or sparse.
