Gather Around the Table This Summer with Some Cool Country Kitchen Decor


One of the very best things about summer is having guests over and entertaining. It’s also a great time to update your home with some new country kitchen decor. Updating your décor is the easiest way to restyle your kitchen. No renovations and no big budgets to tend with. The best part about country kitchen decor is that it suits a farmhouse style and is open to personal interpretation. Whatever items you choose, they are sure to be a beautiful addition to the room. So how should you add country kitchen decor this summer?

Display Antiques

Antiques come in a variety of types. Display vases, mason jars, or wooden bowls in your kitchen. Not only are you adding personality to your kitchen, but extra bowls and containers provide functional storage. You may find jars, metal baskets, and other items that stand out but still have a purpose. Antiques can sit on open shelves or behind glass door cabinets while being a conversation starter.

Natural Textures

One of the biggest elements in country decor is natural textures. Burlap, wicker, and linen bring a more casual feel to the kitchen. There doesn’t have to be a large design change to embrace these textures either. It can be as simple as adding linen curtains to your windows. Since these textures come in lighter colors they will make your room brighter and inviting which is perfect for summer.

Vintage Lighting

Changing up your lighting can be a quick, inexpensive way to refresh your style. Light fixtures come in a variety of vintage styles made from many different types of materials. No matter what you choose, you’ll be adding a focal point and a wow factor to your kitchen. This is also a way to modernize the kitchen in a fun, useful way.

A Fresh Coat of Paint

Every kitchen can use a fresh coat of paint from time to time. Painting can transform your kitchen easily. White will make your kitchen light and bright, but don’t forget other muted colors like certain shades of blue, yellow, and green. These colors have a worn-in vibe to them and can be unexpected by guests. You’ll be impressing your guests and embracing a new style of country kitchen decor.

Embrace Open Shelving

When was the last time you checked out your cabinets? You may not have to buy a whole new set of cabinets to bring in a new style. Simply remove the cabinet doors and create an open shelving unit! This will give you a chance to display all of your beautiful country kitchen decor.
