Style of the Day: Country Kitchen

The Canterbury Design Studio has been open for a couple of weeks now. We are really enjoying meeting all of the other speciality shops based on the Kings Mile and meeting new people everyday.

Since opening we have had clients ask us for a range of different styles of kitchens, including industrial, modern, country, French and eco-friendly. To help clients in choosing the ideal kitchen for their home, we've decided to start a little series on the blog where we will highlight the many different kitchen ranges you can chose from to personalise your space.

First up, the ever-popular and timeless style, the country kitchen.

A country kitchen is special in that the doors are normally made of soft materials like wood, and the cabinets are normally painted. Often times you will see the kitchen cabinets have been painted, instead of the smooth gloss finish that you would find in a more modern kitchen.  A country kitchen is normally the heart of the home, and often times you will see a family mingling around a big range cooker or Aga.

Country kitchens are not outdated, in fact they are wildly on trend (although country kitchen families are often not bothered by trends). A country kitchen often has an island or table, large enough to sit around and discuss the day.

A country kitchen can fit in most homes, whether an old barn or a flat in the city. All you need is a pair of wellies, a roast in the oven and the grit to pluck a pheasant.
