Summer Decorating Ideas for Country Kitchens


Divide up the space
Divide a large kitchen into cooking and dining areas with a practical island unit. Fit folding glass doors to maximise the light and lay flagstone flooring or lookalike tiles in varying sizes for rustic, country appeal.


Choose simple units
Cream kitchen units with shaker-style panelled doors and dark wood bun handles are ideal for the country look. Opt for granite worktops as a contrast to the cabinets and bring in a farmhouse table and chairs for relaxed meals.


Make the cooker a focal point
Set a classic cream Aga into a chimney breast with a mantel shelf above to create the quintessential country kitchen. A panel of decorative tiles printed with foodie words adds to the effect.


Make space to breakfast
A curvy island unit supplies valuable workspace and extends to form a glass-topped breakfast bar, providing this kitchen with the wow factor. Contrast cream units with a bank of gleaming built-in ovens.


Choose calming blue
Pale blue units with contemporary bar handles could look a shade too cool, but a reclaimed teak table and wood flooring provide a warm tone. Accessorise in blue and lime, and bring in a check blind and cushion to draw the scheme together.


Dress the window in style
Hang a café curtain in pretty embroidered linen part-way up the window. Make up a lightweight curtain with a deep hem at the top and slide onto an expanding tension rod for an instant fit, no screws required.


Mix textures
Old beams and an exposed brick wall are a great backdrop for a modern range cooker and extractor hood in gleaming steel. Units are painted in crisp white, with marble effect worktops adding a classic touch.


Freestanding furniture
Expand your kitchen storage with a practical larder cupboard. Behind the doors practical shelves deal with a multitude of baking utensils and tinned or dried goods. If you have plates to display opt for an open top.


Select the perfect sink
Turn the sink area into a focal point with a double butler’s sink fitted with a traditional bridge tap with ceramic handles. Stitch an under-sink curtain from pretty, summery fabric to hide away clutter.


Go for eclectic style
In a spacious kitchen located in a barn the mix and match approach works well. Fit cream tongue and groove units, then emphasise the wood floor and beams with a well-scrubbed farmhouse table and assorted chairs.
