Country kitchen style is a somewhat broad category that can include everything from the truly rustic—think unfinished, knotty pine cabinets and other styles with wood as far as the eye can see—to more “continental” styles like French or Tuscan country kitchens.
One common thread for country kitchens is that they generally let in a bit more personality and ornamentation than their contemporary and modern cousins. Whereas the latter are often sleek, stylized, minimalist affairs, country kitchens often feature intricate details, fine craftsmanship, and plenty of opportunities to express your personal design style.
