Cooking up Charming Country Kitchens

Jul 22, 2021 - 4 min read

There’s something magical about country style – the simplicity, rawness and pared-back beauty evokes a sense of comfort and cosiness unlike any other interior style. If you’re looking to bring home that rural charm, The Good Guys have all the essential appliances and designs for perfect country kitchens.

Country Kitchen Design Layout

Designing the best country kitchens begins with optimising the space to create the ultimate country style kitchens. The style is versatile enough to suit every kitchen layout, so explore the options to see what works best for your space.

U-shaped: Best suited for larger spaces, the U-shaped kitchen is perfect for a country style kitchen in soft tones and rustic accents. It sets the mood for the family to gather around the table while the Sunday roast simmers.

L-shaped: Give the traditional country kitchen designs a modern feel with the L-shaped kitchen, ideal for open plan living homes. Draw inspiration from French Provincial styles to bring a city touch to your country kitchen.

Galley kitchen: A long narrow walkway sits between the benchtop and the kitchen counter with the cooktop and cabinetry creating the ideal entertaining spot. Transform your galley kitchen space into a country haven with shades of white, pastels and neutrals with highlights of copper and greenery.

Kitchen Island: Give your freestanding bench top a modern country kitchen makeover with overhanging fixtures, appliances in rustic finishes, and fittings in warm notes. What is a country kitchen if not people gathering around the kitchen island over platters of fresh food and drinks.

Peninsula: A peninsula is when the island benchtop meets the wall, combining the contemporary style of an island with the comfort of a country kitchen. The design creates a feature wall that can be decorated with still-life paintings to channel old country charm.

Appliances for the Country Kitchen

Kitchen appliances are crucial in setting the tone for your kitchen. From colour, finish and placement – appliances form the backbone of your kitchen, so spend time familiarising yourself with the various brands before you make your choice.
