Decorating your kitchen in farmhouse style can be a wonderful way to enjoy a simpler life. A Midwest farmhouse filled with antiques to a bright and sunny southern home that embodies coastal charm; here are some country kitchen furniture options and ideas to inspire everyone. |
If a country kitchen is your decorating theme, choose rustic country kitchen furniture in wrought iron. Oxidized metal and weathered wooden country kitchen furniture are the perfect complements to walls in warm colors like mustard yellow and sage green. This furniture style also works wonderfully well with lighter walls and flooring like almond white or cornflower blue. Look through antique shops and flea markets for rustic metal kitchen furniture and weathered pine cabinets.
Match the lighting fixtures to your kitchen furniture. Interesting sconces like ones crafted in the shape of an authentic canning jar attached to an antique base can bring country charm to your cooking space. These sconces are also available with matching pendants that display the industriousness that takes place in farmhouses after harvest and in country kitchens. A chandelier to light your worktop might also be a good idea. If you have kitchen furniture like a centered island, consider lighting it with an architectural chandelier shaped like the top of a greenhouse to bring a touch of homegrown goodness to your kitchen.
Create a striking focal point in your country kitchen with a wall mural. The rustic decorating style is all about pattern and design so you can create a trompe l'oeil of a rural country scene with fields of lavender reaching out as far as the eye can see. A great picture stretched on canvas and framed can also be an interesting centerpiece for this cooking space. The draperies in this rustic kitchen can be classic country patterns like gingham or plaid. Strategically placed gingham patterned floor mats can play up the vintage farmhouse look.
These ideas can be transformed easily to suit coastal country theme. Recapture the essence of the good ole days on the sea by switching out drywall for beadboard paneling. Swap your stainless steel sink for an old farmhouse version. Sand away a few coats of paint from your kitchen furniture and cabinetry to create a well-loved feel.
