Inviting Country Kitchen Style
A country kitchen is at once warm and inviting while revolving around functionality, often drawing inspiration from old farmhouses. The most important aspect in designing a country kitchen is the color scheme of the kitchen. Choose bright, bold and earthy tones like brown, tan, rust, orange, fawn, etc. You can also choose vibrant colors like tomato red, verdant green, cobalt blue, and purple for the walls and ceilings of the kitchen. If you are not very comfortable having bright colors in the kitchen, you can go for more soothing soft ocean colors like sea green and turquoise blue. Flooring should not only be natural and eco friendly, but it should also help to give an open and airy feeling. The best flooring for a country kitchen is wood flooring in a soft color. You can also incorporate a laid back country feel by installing natural stone tiles that come in different textures and finishes.
As the colors of the walls and ceilings of a country kitchen is bright and vibrant, the kitchen cabinets and accessories should be in a muted color. If you can afford good wooden cabinets than opt for light colored wooden furniture like oak and walnut, reserve the expensive and darker mahogany cabinets for the dining room or the living room. After all, country kitchen style can be designed according to the needs of the family members and their tastes.
