A cottage kitchen takes design ideas from a number of different styles including traditional, country, and retro. The right mixture of these three styles adds up to a perfect cottage kitchen. Here are some ideas to transform your kitchen to cottage kitchen style.
Glass panes on cabinets are the perfect look for a cottage style kitchen. They expose your cabinetry offering a way to bring some color to your kitchen through your dishes. Open shelving is also a great way to get a trademark cottage look. Try displaying a vintage china collection there.
White cabinets, white beadboard, white ceiling – all of these things make a cottage kitchen. Make sure you use an off-white or cream to keep it warmer and not so harshly bright. Sound Finish offers professional cabinet painting services to get that perfect white color.
Like the idea of open shelving, but not the thought of everyone seeing your cabinetry? Consider using wicker baskets to hold your kitchen tools and gadgets.
Blend of Old and New
A cottage style kitchen has the perfect blend of old style with modern style. Try using an old wood farm table and putting a modern hanging lamp above it. Wood beams in the ceiling will also add to the old style.
A farm-style apron-front sink will tie your cottage kitchen together. The best part about this is it doesn’t have to be white. You can choose a neutral blue, green, gray, or whatever color you want.
While cream and white are the go-to colors for cottage kitchen cabinets, it doesn’t all have to be white. Have your kitchen island pop with a different neutral color. Need some paint color ideas?

This is where the retro look adds to the cottage kitchen. Consider getting a red, blue, or green stove or oven. It’ll add a pop of color while still remaining a cottage style. You can find colorful appliances at BigChill.
Wood Plank Ceiling
To really pull off the cottage kitchen style, wood plank ceilings are a must. This makes the whole kitchen have a coastal feeling, which is generally where you find cottages. The wood planks can remain the natural wood stain or be painted white – either one works.
