Country Kitchen Design & Rustic Kitchen Decor

Little touches can make a huge impact in your country kitchen design and one of the least expensive ways to enhance your country kitchen decor is to display your treasures.

Build shelves all around your ceiling wall. It can be a little difficult to dust but a little dust won't hurt anything it just adds to the vintage country look.

Hanging pot racks add just the perfect rustic touch while giving you a perfect way to show off your pots and pans. The possibilities in a country kitchen are endless.

  • a pot of flowers on the window-sill
  • fruits or vegetables baskets
  • window box filled with herbs
  • braided, hooked or rag rugs
  • copper pots or cookbooks
  • pottery and vases
  • checked gingham curtains
  • butcher block or tables
  • plate, pot racks, peg racks
  • Calico, checks, plaid fabrics

These simple additions add charm and cheerfulness to your country kitchen design.

I love this custom kitchen by master craftsman Scott Reed. The colonial style timber frame perfectly incloses the custom cabinetry and granite countertops. If you have an idea for a custom creation for your home, you can contact Scott through CustomMade by Scott Reedcustom kitchen

Lighting, Flooring, Cabinets & Windows

Lighting is very important. Lighting essentials for a kitchen should include good general, or ambient lighting, plus task lighting at work areas, such as, the stove, sink, islands and countertops

Baker racks are the perfect compliment to any kitchen or dining room. Ideal for displaying your collectibles and other knick-knacks.

Kitchen floors take a beating. They must withstand more traffic than most other rooms in the house, plus the spill and scrubbing that go with cooking. But if durability is a major consideration in selecting a kitchen floor, so is your country kitchen design for floors, because the options in kitchen flooring also are greater than any other room.

Cabinets, cupboards and pantries are all very important in a kitchen

Plenty of attention should be given to their layout, material and color. Also don't forget your kitchen cabinet hardware, latches, knobs and drawer pulls are easily found in most design themes.

If you are tired of not having enough storage space in your kitchen there's a wide variety of kitchen cabinets and pantries to choose from.

You can find cabinets and pantries with built in roll out trays, bread drawers, tiered shelves, wine storage and many more options to keep your kitchen goods organized and easy to find or you can have your cabinets custom made. Glass cabinet doors are wonderful for displaying collectibles.

Kitchen Curtains which accent the country kitchen design, can range from charming tier curtains, single point valances, layered valances, swag curtains, gingham & lace and sheer curtains.

Gathered on a decorative rod, curtains that pick up your accent colors will give your window a finished country decor look. Blinds, shutters and shades also work well for kitchen windows.

The american country style kitchen is one of the most valued rooms in your home. Not only for comfort and convenience of the homeowners, but to the prospective buyer, should you ever decide to sell your home.
