Classic Country Appeal

Hardwood floors and weathered brick contribute to the timeless design in this kitchen by Cyndy Cantley, CKD. A deep farmhouse sink is as practical as it is pretty, and a rough-hewn island keeps the look down to earth.

Pale Perfection

Painted finishes are a hallmark of country design. The robins-egg blue cabinetry in this kitchen by BeDe Design adds welcome color amid the natural hues.

Simple Pleasures

Plate racks and candlestick-style sconces; white-on-white-on-wood. Keep your country kitchen simple as Historical Concepts Architecture & Planning did here, and you’ve got the perfect backdrop to highlight food and family.

Colorful Country

Fiestaware colors and checkerboard flooring lend this country kitchen a hip, midcentury flair. Rustic open shelving gives colorful ceramics pride of place.

The Tractor Factor

Tractor-seat stools add an agrarian touch to this country kitchen, and terra-cotta floors with Moravian accent tiles featuring cows add to the farmhouse feeling.

Terra-Cotta Close-Up

A close-up shot showcases the small cow tiles that accent this terra-cotta floor.

Mixed Design

It's the mix of woods, including heart-pine flooring and recycled-timber beams, that distinguish this country kitchen by Studio Entourage and architect Linda MacArthur. The barstools are slipcovered in muslin for a casual look and easy care.

Handcrafted Accents

Knotty pine walls and cabinets give this kitchen designed by Christine Albertsson of Albertsson Hansen Architects a rustic, cabin-in-the-woods ambiance. Wrought-iron chandeliers with candle bulbs harken back to simpler times.

Warm Textures

Exposed ceiling beams and a wood-burning fireplace provide the open, lodge-like feel in this kitchen designed by Jeff Murphy. The island is weathered wood and the sconces are aged copper.

The Industrial Age

Exposed ceiling beams and an industrial range hood with its oxidation left as is add a casual, country feel to this kitchen by Historical Concepts Architecture & Planning.

Rustic Meets Refined

A stone wall is the focal point of this country kitchen designed by Jill Jarrett and Lauren Costar of Jarrett Design, LLC. Professional-quality appliances ensure that the workspace is as functional as it is charming.

Animals Welcome

What's a country kitchen without a couple of big, affectionate dogs? Here, designer Patricia Caulfield set a dog-feeding station against a classic country background of white beaded board.

Natural High

A knotty-wood table and rush baskets add farmhouse style to this suburban dining nook designed by Stonebreaker Builders & Remodelers. Accessories in on-trend shades of turquoise and brown make the space feel fresh.

Country, Southwest Style

Rough-hewn alder wood cabinetry and wrought iron accents keep this space “country” without the slightest hint of “cutesy.” The floor is cement with a faux-wood porcelain tile inlay

Go Fishcamp

This fishcamp cabin kitchen by Historical Concepts Architecture & Planning hits just about every country note: Rustic wood, milk-paint colors, suspended plate racks and casual scatter rugs – and, of course, a deep farmhouse sink. Pale walls and a disciplined lack of clutter keep it all from becoming overwhelming.

Français Farmhouse

Cream-colored cabinets and painted ceramics give this country kitchen a French accent. The turned island legs and farmhouse-style drawer pulls complete the look.

The Lodge Look

Painted cabinets with antique-looking glass add to the lodge look of this space by Tami Holsten of Bear Trap Design.

Freestanding Storage in Rustic Kitchen

Freestanding storage pieces complement built-ins for the assembled-over-time look characteristic of country decor.

Beam Me Up

Wood takes pride of place here, too – this time in exposed ceiling beams, evoking camp-cabin memories in this family-friendly kitchen by Remodelworks.

Eclectic Eat-In

Don’t be afraid of adding other countries to your country kitchen. A Middle-Eastern-style chandelier fits perfectly in this American kitchen with a classic country table and fabric-covered chairs. Seasonal centerpieces highlight nature; imagine how glorious sunflowers would look here in the summer!
