Country Kitchens

Cosy, cheery, eclectic and welcoming, country kitchens are perfect for cottages, farmhouses, country properties and where you wish to create a rural oasis in an urban setting.

Shaker-style cabinet doors or traditional Gothic designs are must-haves for country kitchens, in lissa oak, light walnut, beech or other natural woodgrains. Opt for round wooden knobs or antique brass pulls to add to the rustic feel. Worktops could be white, timeless black granite or earthen tones and possibly choose a Belfast sink with traditional taps. A freestanding kitchen table, wooden chairs and large stone-effect floor tiles will set off your country kitchen décor. Just add chintz or floral curtains and cushions.

  • Black granite or recycled glass finishes and their crisp white equivalents work well in country kitchens, against woodgrains and pale door colours. Alternatively, investigate the range of earthen tones, which with their granular effects work well with timber finishes. There are also plenty of neutral tones that would complement rustic matt doors.

  • Country kitchens tend to feature simple Shaker and period styles, in ageless oak, elegant ivory, pale alabaster or rustic-inspired matt finishes. Perhaps emphasise the cottage look with tongue and groove-effect end panels. Handles are matching wooden knobs or period designs in pewter or cast iron. A mantle over the cooker adds to the farmhouse feel.

  • The subtlety of white and slate mosaic mixes in our exclusive splashback range work well in a rustic kitchen, as would earthen tones that complement natural woodgrain doors. Or extend your search to the Trend Approved collection, where there are studio-designed and custom mosaic mixes to choose from, as well as classic formats like Subway.

  • Stone, marble and terrazzo flooring is perfect for offsetting a country kitchen, but the sealing, cleaning and repairs can be a nightmare. Instead, choose any of our agglomerate materials in a floor tile or flooring plank format and forget about staining, abrasion and regular maintenance. Since they are non-porous too, there are no worries about saucepan spills or muddy boots.

  • In the country kitchen, butler-style ceramic sinks and traditional kitchen brassware rule, although granite-effect single and double bowls or circular undermount sinks also work well. There are range cookers with coloured enamel finishes for a rustic look, perhaps with a mantle or canopy to match your cabinetry, even window pelmets and open plate racks.
