Classic Country Appeal

Hardwood floors and weathered brick contribute to the timeless design in this kitchen by Cyndy Cantley, CKD. A deep farmhouse sink is as practical as it is pretty, and a rough-hewn island keeps the look down to earth.

Pale Perfection

Painted finishes are a hallmark of country design. The robins-egg blue cabinetry in this kitchen by BeDe Design adds welcome color amid the natural hues.

Simple Pleasures

Plate racks and candlestick-style sconces; white-on-white-on-wood. Keep your country kitchen simple as Historical Concepts Architecture & Planning did here, and you’ve got the perfect backdrop to highlight food and family.

Colorful Country

Fiestaware colors and checkerboard flooring lend this country kitchen a hip, midcentury flair. Rustic open shelving gives colorful ceramics pride of place.

The Tractor Factor

Tractor-seat stools add an agrarian touch to this country kitchen, and terra-cotta floors with Moravian accent tiles featuring cows add to the farmhouse feeling.

Mixed Design

It's the mix of woods, including heart-pine flooring and recycled-timber beams, that distinguish this country kitchen by and architect Linda MacArthur. The barstools are slipcovered in muslin for a casual look and easy care.

Handcrafted Accents

Knotty pine walls and cabinets give this kitchen designed by  a rustic, cabin-in-the-woods ambiance. Wrought-iron chandeliers with candle bulbs harken back to simpler times.

Warm Textures

Exposed ceiling beams and a wood-burning fireplace provide the open, lodge-like feel in this kitchen designed by . The island is weathered wood and the sconces are aged copper.

The Industrial Age

Exposed ceiling beams and an industrial range hood with its oxidation left as is add a casual, country feel to this kitchen by Historical Concepts Architecture & Planning.

Rustic Meets Refined

A stone wall is the focal point of this country kitchen designed by Jill Jarrett and Lauren Costar of . Professional-quality appliances ensure that the workspace is as functional as it is charming.

Animals Welcome

What's a country kitchen without a couple of big, affectionate dogs? Here, designer Patricia Caulfield set a dog-feeding station against a classic country background of white beaded board.

Natural High

A knotty-wood table and rush baskets add farmhouse style to this suburban dining nook designed by Stonebreaker Builders & Remodelers. Accessories in on-trend shades of turquoise and brown make the space feel fresh.

Country, Southwest Style

Rough-hewn alder wood cabinetry and wrought iron accents keep this space “country” without the slightest hint of “cutesy.” The floor is cement with a faux-wood porcelain tile inlay

Go Fishcamp

This fishcamp cabin kitchen by Historical Concepts Architecture & Planning hits just about every country note: Rustic wood, milk-paint colors, suspended plate racks and casual scatter rugs – and, of course, a deep farmhouse sink. Pale walls and a disciplined lack of clutter keep it all from becoming overwhelming.

Francais Farmhouse

Cream-colored cabinets and painted ceramics give this country kitchen a French accent. The turned island legs and farmhouse-style drawer pulls complete the look.

The Lodge Look

Painted cabinets with antique-looking glass add to the lodge look of this space by Tami Holsten of Bear Trap Design.

Blending In

Freestanding storage pieces complement built-ins for the assembled-over-time look characteristic of country decor.

Beam Me Up

Wood takes pride of place here, too – this time in exposed ceiling beams, evoking camp-cabin memories in this family-friendly kitchen by Remodelworks.

Eclectic Eat-In

Don’t be afraid of adding other countries to your country kitchen. A Middle-Eastern-style chandelier fits perfectly in this American kitchen with a classic country table and fabric-covered chairs. Seasonal centerpieces highlight nature; imagine how glorious sunflowers would look here in the summer!
