Country Kitchen Design Styles

When thinking of country kitchens, we get warm fuzzy feelings. They embody cosyness, comfort, and the slower country life so many of us are craving. They may remind you of the smell of freshly baked bread from grandma, or gathering with the family for the Sunday roast. Country kitchen have a very special charm. But what exactly makes the style? Within the ‘country’ genre, there’s a few styles that are particularly popular on Houzz - namely modern/contemporary and french. Let’s look at them in a bit more detail.

Modern and Contemporary Country Styles

When it comes to modern country kitchens, there seems to be a movement of bringing the country feel into modern spaces. Strictly speaking though, the modern(ist) style couldn’t be more different to country. Straight lines and clean, minimalist touches often make for a cool atmosphere. No wonder so many people want to warm their modern homes up and bring in a little of the cosy country feel! The more accurate term for this is ‘contemporary’ though, which is more about what’s ‘modern’ at the current time, rather than ‘modernism’ which is a design movement from the early 1900s.

French and English Designs

French country kitchens on the other hand are a very distinct style that incorporates lots of wood elements, quirky and whimsical tiling and an old-school feel that reminds of castles from the middle ages. You’ll also find welded metal elements and exposed brick a lot. Sometimes it even borders towards what you can find in the English countryside, with chandeliers and copper pots and utensils. Generally you’ll find European country kitchen styles similar but each of them comes with their own quirks. Have a browse and see which of them resonate with you!
