Cabinets is most important feature which can distinguish a country kitchen from other styles .
Instead of looking for the traditional maple or oak cabinets, consider painted white cabinets. Glass cabinet doors are another nice touch. You could also add period cabinet hinges and accessories. You may find originals at an antique or second hand store. Also, many companies produce replicas that can be ordered through home improvement stores.
A few changes in accessories can make a world of difference. A different wall paper border, country curtains or a display of old fashioned cooking utensils can help pull your look together. Farmhouse sinks are also very popular, and look great in a country style kitchen.
When creating the country kitchen you’ve always dreamed of, it may not be possible to purchase high end appliances. If it is within your budget, a few companies produce replicas of vintage appliances.
More and more families are choosing to eat their meals in the kitchen, leaving the dining room for special occasions. If that is the case in your home, you’ll want the table and chairs to maintain the country charm. Of course, they also need to be comfortable and practical.
A table and chairs made from cherry or oak is ideal for the small family setting. Buy cushions for the seat and back of the chairs to mix and match with the kitchen curtains. If you are handy with a sewing machine you can make your own, and have your pick of fabrics. Shop around for hand embroidered cotton clothes, napkins and a wicker basket for storing bread and other items.
