With rustic undertones and warm nature-inspired accents, country kitchens are a popular trend. Consisting of muted colors, natural wood, and country-themed decor, this style has gained popularity for its minimalist components.
With so many color and design options to inspire your country kitchen, picking a particular color or design scheme for your home can be overwhelming. We have searched multiple sources to bring you a concise collection of cozy country kitchen ideas to bring out your inner country decorator.
Warm and inviting color palettes are characteristic of country homes, and country kitchens should be no exception. While your home’s inside should be representative of your tastes and personal style, there are some common trends among country kitchens. While subdued colors are more characteristic of country homes, all-white kitchens are hugely popular and fit into this design scheme. Bright colors can be used to accent this look if that is more your style.
1. Blue country kitchen
A rustic country blue tone inspired by the beautiful blue sky can be the perfect shade for your cozy country kitchen. Combined with the warm rustic wooden beams, light country blue provides the perfect cool country contrast to this space. Deep black countertops allow the sky blue cabinets to be the kitchen’s focal point in the example below. The unique barrel cabinet and cutting board combo is the perfect touch to complete this country look.
2. Whitewashed country kitchen
Whitewashing has been a popular paint method for centuries. Old farm barns were once whitewashed for a fresh-faced easy paint method using a slaked lime or calcimine-based paint to paint over the surface for a subdued transparent white look.
The whitewashed cabinets and furniture combine with the warm rust and blue-toned cabinets for a mixed wood cabinet look. This eclectic look is further accented with the warm natural wood colors and the blue and green hues of the throw pillows.
3. Warm natural wood country kitchen
As mentioned earlier, a defining characteristic of country kitchens’ design schemes is a nature-inspired decorative approach. Warm brown tones in wood cabinets can make the perfect backdrop to your country kitchen. Toasty orange undertones add a colorful warmth to the kitchen in the example below. Cool splashes of greens and browns inspired by water and grass add vivid contrasting colors to this country cottage-inspired kitchen.

Another classic element of country kitchen decor is a delicate nature-inspired floral print. Nothing compares to a classic blue floral country print to accent the look of your cozy country kitchen. In the example below, blue floral print ceramic dishes add a traditional look to this country kitchen. A unique blue and brown backsplash and countertop pattern add some warmth, contrast, and texture to the space.
6. Grey, beige country kitchen
Grey is the perfect mixture of black and white tones and is widely popular for home decor use. Mixing different greys is a great way to add some color range to your grey room.
