This country style kitchen is certainly a dream room for anybody that loves rustic or down home decor. The designer managed to blend primitive style with contemporary elements and modern amenities in a way that does not look mismatched or random. I think the key to their success was choosing the right kitchen design ideas to firmly establish the decor theme without making it cliche or overwhelming. The exposed barn wood beams and stone fireplace paired with beautiful painted cabinetry really set the tone for the space. A few contemporary elements like sleek granite countertops, stainless steal appliances and a fun backsplash, keep the design grounded in the 21st century and prevent it from looking too overdone.
When our latest client told us that they wanted an upscale country kitchen that had the feel of a period home but with all the modern amenities of a chefs kitchen, I knew we had our work cut out for us. Luckily the footprint of the room was enormous and open, giving us a ton of room for creativity. I really wanted to make a huge design statement with the kitchen cabinets so we selected these gorgeous paneled units with a ton of additional wood detailing to mimic the look of large antique hutches reminiscent of French estate homes. We tucked all appliances behind cabinetry doors to give the room a old world feel, almost as if you had stepped into the bustling beautiful kitchens of old plantation homes.
This remodel was for a homeowner who wanted a traditional kitchen design that could still accommodate modern furnishings. The result is a space that has a practical layout with an elegant touch. The hardwood flooring and cabinets give it a timeless sophisticated look. By accenting with granite countertops, a white ceiling and modern recessed lighting, we added a contemporary glow that helps highlight the other architecture. We also implemented several unique kitchen island ideas to make hosting guests a breeze. A sink is built into the island so they no longer have to move back and forth between counter spaces when preparing food. It’s also spacious enough for a party of four to enjoy a quick meal or post-dinner drinks under an ambient glow.
There are many different kitchen styles to choose from so it took a while to find this one. We loved the contrast between the crisp, white floors and countertops and the dark, elegant cabinets. It’s the perfect blend of a classic and modern kitchen. The marble backsplash and silver hardware also add a chic, fresh touch. The combination of both contemporary and traditional elements throughout the kitchen creates a very clean yet inviting feeling that we absolutely love. We want people to feel welcome. After all, beautiful kitchens are the best places to gather, catch-up with friends, and enjoy delicious food.When we bought our house it definitely wasn’t exactly what we dreamed of.
