A big reason why so many people like country kitchens is because they feel light, airy, and homey. In an ideal kitchen, natural light can pour in through windows and doors. Even with multiple windows in the room, you should still consider what other light sources you include in the design. The recessed ceiling lights above the counter of this kitchen are practical, and the pendant lights above the island are both practical and stylish. Remember, your country kitchen should be both functional and beautiful, and designing with light sources in mind will help you accomplish just that.
Since country kitchens are devoted to be light and bright, many windows are adorned with very simple, white curtains that don't block out much light. However, an alternative idea is to not use curtains at all! You can dress up a kitchen window by using a unique garland above and around it. This one in particular uses lemons, and both the lemons and the color yellow are popular in terms of country living. You don't have to use a garland exactly like this, but you can certainly see how similar garlands can bring in that country theming in a classy way.
Designing a kitchen with mainly neutral colors can help create a country feel in your kitchen by creating a simple space. This room obviously uses white as its main color to maintain a light and bright feeling, but the greys and blacks of the other furnishings and appliances provide a nice break from the white. Plus, the wood tones of the counters and shelves add in some much needed warmth. When you design with neutral colors, be sure to find opportunities to add in warming elements like natural wood or flowers.
Kitchens are often called the heart of the home because of the community that is formed over food and the memories of cooking/baking. By putting the extra effort in to make your kitchen reflect your personality and style, you can take the space to the next level and enjoy not only the memories you make in the space, but also the space itself.
