Add Dashes of Color
White kitchens usually need some spicing up. Dashes of barn red in island stools, dishware and vintage game boards, along with a country-blue painted built-in sideboard, enliven this space with their Americana colors.
Picture Two: Create plenty of display
Create plenty of display
No country kitchen decorations is complete without plenty of display space to show off collections of canning jars, ironstone, cake plates and other humble farmhouse antiques. Replace solid wood upper cabinet doors with glass-front versions. Install shelving between two cabinets, or simply remove doors on an existing wall cabinet and paint the interior.
Picture Three: Select vintage styles
Select vintage styles
Choose faucet and sink styles that replicate vintage looks. Here, a modernized bridge-style polished-chrome faucet and apron-front sink add to the new country feel.
Picture Four: Update with a splurge
Update with a splurge
Carrara marble countertops are a splurge, but they instantly update the bygone elements of the room with clean-lined beauty.
Picture Five: Create easy storage
Doorless box units constructed above the refrigerator and/or under cabinets are easy, integrated solutions for storage baskets and a microwave.
Picture Six: A desk with a view
A desk with a view
The owners created a desk by suspending a ledge (a cabinet drawer unit works, too) under a window between cabinets. A farm-style chair fits perfectly.

Keep it simple
Pastoral simplicity is key. A backsplash of white subway tile adds pretty gloss without undue distraction. Inexpensive white tiles, available at home centers, make this an achievable treatment.

Paneling and flooring
Nothing says country like the barn look of flat-board paneling. Vary board width, placement (vertical or horizontal) and finish (stain or paint) to give a kitchen an assembled-over-time look. Here, paneling adds texture to the island base and cabinet fronts and backs. Stained paneling puts subtle color on the walls. Another hallmark of farmhouse style? Wood and linoleum floors. Refinish or paint old wood floors. For a new floor, try distressed wood-look laminate or linoleum tiles in a checkerboard pattern.
You can also complete your country kitchen decorations by contrasting old with new elements like a sleek black countertop paired with rustic cabinets and stainless steel appliances. Give extra statement to your ceiling by adding a bead board ceiling in a wood tone or a stain to give a farmhouse look to your kitchen. Rustic wood beams can also add a lot of depth, warmth, and character to your redecorated space.
