Remodel your kitchen right into a more inviting, laid-back space with images of our favourite cottage kitchens

Kitchens are generally the heart of a home. It is wherein families meet, share meals together, and frequently where new memories are made. And no kitchen is more ‘hearty’ than the country kitchen. From unified colour schemes to ambitious and vibrant kitchens defined by colour and pattern, we explore excellent cottage kitchen design ideas to help you transform your kitchen from stale to surprising.

Of course, ample use of wood is an obvious sign of traditional cottage kitchen design. It harkens back to a simpler time. Shaker cabinets in a natural finish or butchers’ blocks are clear ways to make this happen. However, if incorporating reclaimed wood is a possibility, you can do that too. Ceiling beams and shelving are sometimes made from the wood of old barns, factories and homes easily add heaps of rustic charm.

A cottage kitchen is a great option for any style of home, from coastal and family friendly to mid-century. Decide on your cabinets and counters, how to creatively think about kitchen islands, and how to incorporate the old with the new.
