HGTV is offering some wonderful ways to create a cozy country kitchen in your home. It will become the heart of the home in the fall as everyone gathers in this inviting countrified space.
A Beautiful Breakfast Nook
A breakfast nook is the ideal place for kids to sit down and have breakfast before they start a hectic school day. It is becomes an oasis for parents to have a cup of coffee after they head out the door. Consider white walls with an antique iron chandelier for a country feeling everyone is sure to appreciate.
The Wonder of Wood
A country kitchen often has plenty of wood in rich, natural hues. Wood cabinet, paneling and flooring create a country feeling in your kitchen. Consider a wood table or kitchen island with old-fashioned bar stools. It will become the perfect place to have a quick bite or enjoy cocktails with friends.
Inspiration from Grandma
Do you remember how good it felt to walk into your grandmother's kitchen? Usually there were no modern accessories or stark colors. Everything was warm with cozy hues of yellow, orange and green. Bring that feeling into your own kitchen with simple appliances and colorful accessories. Dare to leave modern elements behind for a fresh feeling that brings a smile to your face as you remember eating cookies as a child.
