Country Kitchens - How to Create the Look

Country kitchens designs have become popular in recent years among those who are undertaking DIY kitchen remodel projects, because of the way they evoke a relaxed country lifestyle. Such designs are usually inspired by Southern farm houses and have such homey features as flowers and fruits hanging from suspended baskets and hand-painted decorations. To find inspiration for your country design, visit farmers’ markets where locally-made arts and crafts are sold. You can use these pieces as part of the décor for your kitchen as well as getting design ideas from them.

A hanging utensil rack is also usually suspended in kitchens, from which pots, pans and spices are hung. To further add atmosphere, look for accessories at garage sales such as wooden clocks and old-fashioned mugs. You might also want to have spice racks on the kitchen counter, as well as jars for flour and cookies, to further evoke a rustic atmosphere.
