Let’s say you’ve been living in the city, and life has been in a fast-paced scenario compared to your countryside home. Although the city life is live and fun, there will always come a point where you will miss home. You can relive the country lifestyle by designing your own kitchen with a country theme. Just follow these five easy tips.
Know Your Space
You should first assess the space and start planning what you want to do. While it’s understandable that you will be excited to design the kitchen; you should first prioritise checking the space, especially if you plan to add some fixtures. It would be best if you will be able to design the kitchen area in a way that will make it easier for you to manoeuvre around.
Check Your Kitchen Fixtures
You have to check your kitchen furniture and appliances if it would fit for a country or a rustic theme. Don’t forget to check if your fixtures are still durable. Old vases, placemats and empty canisters can be used for a classic country look. Investing in retro appliances is also a good way to give your kitchen a country vibe.
Having a country-themed doesn’t mean you’re not allowed to have modern fixtures. You can still use today’s latest appliances as you can still achieve a country look through wallpaper designs and other artistic aesthetics. You should also hire a plumber to asses out the plumbing lines of your kitchen if there are any issues.
A touch of Country Glam
If you want a refreshing countryside feeling, there are a lot of choices. You can start painting your walls with white and a touch of beige or cream. Country colours mostly have earth-coloured paints. You can hire a professional painter to refurbish the paint of your kitchen but you can just do it on your own to save money.
Be Your Own Designer
Tweeds and plaid blankets, towels, and mugs are the standard accessories used to have a country theme. There are also other designs such as florals, woodland, and animal prints which you can utilise to your kitchen accessories. We also recommend you to recycle old materials and furniture as they can give a rustic vibe for your kitchen.
When you’re done with the room beautification and all the necessary changes, you can start the furniture arrangement. Generally, country style kitchens have this homey ambience and spaciousness. Be sure to give adequate space for your dishes and appliances to draw in.
It’s also a great idea to mix and match your decorations and appliances. You don’t have to go all out with mixing and matching. For example, you can have different-designed chairs around the table or you can have various blanket designs all over the area. Simple things like these add a unique charm to your country-themed kitchen.
With these 5 easy tips, you can now decorate your kitchen. Remember that this is just a set of recommendations to help you get started with your design. Don’t forget, you can always experiment with your own creativity to give your kitchen that country-style look.
