Add Charm to Your Kitchen - Go Country!
Topic: Home Improvement Author: tess47

If you are like most people, you probably spend 50% of your time in your kitchen.  This is the most used room other than the family room for most families!  You want to make sure that this room is beautiful, as well as comfortable.  There are many things you can do to give your kitchen an atmosphere that your family as well as your visitors will love.

 

If you still have baskets hanging on your walls or sitting above your cabinets as part of your kitchen decor, it's time for a makeover!  Do you like country style home decor?  If so, you can certainly still use your baskets, just line them with a bright checked country pattern fabric.  A farm theme type of decor would be perfect for you.  There are many items available to use in this style from rooster clocks, wall plaques and dinnerware to cookie jars and cow figurines.  You can even get a hen-styled egg basket that is charming!

 

If you have an empty wall in your kitchen or dining room, this is the perfect place for a bakers rack.  Whether it's made of wood, metal or wrought iron, you can add all of your favourite country accents - figurines, rooster decorated tea pots, a few small plants or candles, whatever you like.  This will add a warm and very welcoming feeling to your kitchen.

 

Another great addition to your country style kitchen is decorative wall plates!  These add an enormous amount of colour to your walls, and the rustic colours normally used in rooster kitchen decor are warm and inviting. If you have the type of wall plates that hang vertically, add a country picture on each side of your display for a charming addition to your kitchen or dining room.

 

Do you have an island in your kitchen?  If so, adding a hanging wrought iron pot rack will add even more ambience to your room.   Red or dark blue pots and pans hanging from your pot rack will match wonderfully with the colours you use in country decor.

As you can see, there are dozens of ways to update your kitchen using country style accents.  This style of decorating brings to mind the childhood memories of grandma's house - what a wonderful warm and loving atmosphere that was!  You can create the same feeling for your home with just a few country items and a little imagination.
