Design Styles: The Country Kitchen

The country kitchen is a classic and timeless style of kitchen which creates a homely and warm feel. Whether you are looking for a country design in a rural or urban home, we can design your dream kitchen to suit your home.

There are several ways to create a gorgeous country-style kitchen. Shaker-style cabinets, natural wood and brass hardware are popular and timeless elements that work well in both a rustic and contemporary setting. There are so many elements that can be incorporated into your design, here are some of our favourites…

Design Style: The Country-Style Kitchen


Marble, stone, brushed hardware and natural wood are arguably the best materials to create your country-style kitchen.


Cool, warm and neutral off-white tones will always look great. If you were looking at injecting some colour into your design then we would suggest pastels, a sage green or an inky or teal blue. If you were looking to make a bold statement, then black works well and adds a contemporary element to your design.

Slim line shaker, classic shaker and raised and fielded shaker-style cabinets are perfect for both rustic and contemporary country-style kitchens. Open shelving and in-built side boards are perfect design features and offer diverse and practical storage solutions.

We recently completed a gorgeous project at a country home in the Cotswolds. Our clients wanted to complement their homes original features; wooden beams and exposed brickwork. You can view this project here: The Cotswolds | Benchmark Kitchens
