Country-style kitchens: Timeless designs that ooze rustic charm

Country-style kitchens

There’s something nostalgic about traditional kitchen designs, which inevitably takes you back in time, right? Think classic Shaker cabinetry, exposed beams, retro appliances and an abundance of natural textures like stone and wood – I, for one, am in love with country-style kitchens.  

If you want to add that cosy and welcoming atmosphere to your kitchen, make sure to go for timeless cabinetry in heritage shades, a statement range cooker with a matching old-school cooker hood and leave those nature-inspired materials exposed, like brick, concreate and wood.

The great news is that you can fully transform your space into a cottage getaway-destination with some clever tricks, or put a modern spin on this rustic style and still get that authentic farmhouse look.

Now, are you ready to take a peek at these country-inspired kitchens and get your moodboard going? Then, let’s begin… 

To get that country-style kitchen look, choose a traditional design, like the Original kitchen, from £20,000, painted in Studio Green by Farrow & Ball, from Harvey Jones. Add a bold range cooker and a colourful fridge-freezer that take you back in time and natural textures, such as wood and stone, to tie the scheme together.
The Homely design from £30,000, Life Kitchens, creates a warm and welcoming scheme perfect for a family kitchen. The Shaker-style cupboards and pantry offer plenty of storage space, while the large butler sink and gas hob help create a cohesive look.
Louise Roe’s kitchen features the 5000 London Grey, priced from £550 per sq m, from Caesarstone, and classic cupboards painted in a timeless sage green shade. I love the narrow and high table that can be used as a meal prepping area, as well as a dining spot.
Take your country-style kitchen to the next level with luxurious surfaces, such as the Terra Bianca Satinato Marble, priced from £550 per m2, Cullifords. The veiny surface complements the classic furniture and deep earthy shades beautifully.
The minimalist Chalet range from Kutchenhaus is complemented by sleek matt finishes and dark wooden accents. Plus, the built-in appliances add a contemporary touch to this traditional scheme.
Spice up your country-style kitchen with patterned flooring, like the Lattice Seedpod by Dee Hardwicke bordered with Selected Woods Harvest Oak, £49.99 per sq m, from Harvey Maria.
A traditional shaker-style kitchen, priced from £55,000 plus appliances, from Christopher Peters, with a stained oak island, sits at the heart of this family home. The period features were highlighted utilising the bread ovens for extra storage – such a clever trick. The pantry units have been painted using Farrow & Ball Eating Room Red with a waxed finish to add to the rustic aesthetic.
