How to create a country kitchen look on a budget
The country look is big business when it comes to kitchens, with those living in the countryside and cities all creating their own take on the traditional kitchen style this year.
If you’ve just moved into a new property and want to overhaul your kitchen on a tight budget or are just looking for a few ideas to refresh the look of your current kitchen without blowing a big hole in your bank balance, then these pocket-friendly ideas to recreate the country kitchen look in your space are sure to provide ample inspiration. It’s easy to get started too, whether you want a full on redesign or just a few rustic-inspired additions.
Choose your colour scheme
If you take a look around some of the best country kitchens, you’ll notice that they all use neutral shades such as warm creams, whites, pale greys and sage to give them a comfortable and homely look and feel. These are the colours of nature!
These shades all work well with rustic wooden accents to complete the palette, so choose your colours to complement your chosen wooden furniture or features and you’re halfway there!
On-trend but still with a nod to the traditional, our floating shelving kits are perfect for country kitchens as they are reasonably priced, easy to install and help bring in warm woody tones to the space.
They are also excellent for displaying cute crockery that fits in with the theme you’re aiming for, so click here to choose from a wide array of floating shelving kit colours and sizes.
Fitted kitchens are a relatively modern invention, so if you are trying to be true to the country kitchen theme, then see if you can pick up some stand-alone china display cabinets for crockery or island tables made from solid wood which you can sand down and paint. This not only saves a few pounds, it’s also a great way to add something unique to the heart of your home.
