Regardless of whether you live in the city or the country, a country-style kitchen is a beautiful option if you wish to create a kitchen space that is warm, welcoming and celebrates a classic design aesthetic.

Below we list the key design ingredients you need to create the perfect country-style kitchen for your home.

Classic Colour Palettes

One of the many reasons we love the country style is its sophisticated and neutral colour palette. An all-white kitchen is a classic choice or you may like to combine cabinetry in matte whites and soft greys or blacks. Pair with marble or timber-look benchtops with silver, black or brass accents to bring the style together.

Decorative Cabinetry


Decorative door profiles are a must in this popular kitchen style. Shaker door profiles lend themselves perfectly to the look. Consider either our ever-popular Sierra door profile, a striking and traditional option or our new Cora door, its thin Shaker profile perfect for those wishing to achieve a modern and subtle look. Pair with our Vera door, another new addition to the Freedom Kitchens range, a luxurious panel-look cabinet for a look that is sure to turn heads.




Classic Countertops & Island Benches

The beauty of the country-style is that you can go in a number of directions for your benchtop selection. For a traditional look, a timber countertop from our Premium Halifax Oak Benchtop Range is the perfect choice. The authentic texture of timber is evoked by knots and planking to create a natural wood feel with vertical grain edging applied at the end of the run, mimicking solid timber.

For a modern take, swap the timber for a marble-look laminate or Caesarstone quartz tops for a sophisticated, contemporary look. Allow these tops to elevate your island bench – another key feature within a country kitchen- as they provide generous seating for family and friends as well as additional storage.

Ornate Details

With its classic and neutral cabinetry and benchtop palette, adding ornate and decorative details to your kitchen will ensure that it celebrates a country or farmhouse aesthetic.

Handle selection is central to this – choose from cup handles, or delicate knobs as they complement the style perfectly. Statement pendant lights, brass taps, farmhouse sinks and ovens will complete the look.

Out on Display


Open shelving and our vertical Broadline Glass Doors are perfect for this kitchen style. Display a mixture of glassware, ceramics, florals, kitchen essentials, vessels and natural-fibre storage along shelves or within glass cabinetry to add interest and personality to your kitchen.
