Comforting and Welcoming Country Kitchens

Comforting and Welcoming Country Kitchens

When a homeowner decides to remodel her kitchen, she often decides to change its styles, as well. One of the most popular styles of kitchens is Country because it is not only casually beautiful, but it is also very welcoming and friendly, as well.

Although most people think mainly of American Country when they think of this cabinet door and matching drawer box style, there are actually two others. There is Country French, which is a charming and comfortable look that marries the rustic features of a French farmhouse with hints of Old World elegance. Guests in this style of kitchen should feel as if the French countryside and a garden full of fresh herbs await them just outside the door.

Cabinet Doors and Drawer Boxes

English Country is another popular look for today’s kitchens. This is an earthy, attractive style that often incorporates stone or brick and lots of bare or white-painted wood. A properly done English Country kitchen should give a person the impression that at any moment a few fox hunters fresh from a morning’s ride might pop on by, looking for a bite to eat.

Then, of course, there is the American style of Country kitchen, which is warm and welcoming and beautiful in an unpretentious way. It’s not surprising that so many people choose this casually elegant design for their kitchen.

Changing your kitchen to one of these popular Country styles is not difficult. The most important step to changing the appearance of a kitchen is to replace all of the existing cabinet doors, drawer boxes and hardware with Country style ones. Cabinet doors and drawer boxes take up such a large percentage of the kitchen that they are really the “face” of a kitchen. They are what give a kitchen its identity.

The Perfect Cabinet Doors

Homeowners should work closely with their kitchen cabinet installer or remodeling contractor to ensure that the cabinet doors and drawer boxes they choose exude the right Country feel for their home. They should also make sure that the cabinet doors and drawer boxes that are being purchased are of the highest quality and from a manufacturer that has been in business for a long time, such as Decore-ative Specialties, which has been crafting these items since 1965.

Because cabinet doors and drawer boxes are used many times every day, it would be a huge mistake to try and save money by purchasing cheaply made ones from a fly-by-night manufacturer. Installers and contractors also must be careful not to let their customers talk them into buying cheap cabinet doors and drawer boxes because, in the end, if these should break or cause a homeowner grief, it is the contractor or installer who will be blamed.

Another bonus of using an experienced cabinet door maker like Decore-ative Specialties is that it can offer a large variety of Country cabinet door styles, including ones with glass fronts and ones made from every available species of wood. In fact, no matter what style a homeowner decides on, French, English or good old-fashioned American Country, Decore-ative Specialties has the perfect cabinet doors and drawers to transform a kitchen into the one of her dreams.
