Country Kitchens

Country kitchens are traditional and timeless – from classic country to cape cod. These beautiful kitchens are often very neutral or white, or classic muted colours. They exude charm and coziness and avoid on-trend materials, colours and finishes.

Country kitchen designs rarely display minimalism but instead encourage a well lived-in cooks’ kitchen look. Many of the kitchens shown here are not in rural homes, and demonstrate that you can bring a little country warmth and character into town.

Design features of country styled kitchens

Country kitchens can feature some or all of these details:

  • Butlers sinks, detailed splashbacks such as tiles and bricks, range ovens, inset or shaker-style cabinetry, white cabinetry and contrast (iron, or black) detailed handles.
  • Barn doors are being included more in kitchens and living spaces, which enhances the country feel.

Below is a sample of Country Kitchens we have created for clients throughout New Zealand, and you can easily add them to your Pinterest boards too!
