Less is more? Less what? Less curves for one thing. Crisp clean lines define the new country kitchen look. Mission styled flat panel doors instead of raised panels. Square cut backsplashes and countertops and minimal cabinet molding, if any.
Open shelving and cubby holes give an old-world European feel to these kitchens. A combination of natural wood tones with earthy grays make good choices for the new country kitchen. And the finishes will be matt instead of glossy. Everything about this look speaks to practicality, but still has an urban flair to it.
To finish off the look, the pulls and drawer hardware will have simple functional styling and pewter will be a top choice for the finish. Glass doors, that are a standard in the traditional country kitchen, won’t be a part of this design scheme. Open shelving and cubby holes will be used instead to show off dishware and stainless steel cookware. These open air displays give an old-world European feel to these kitchens.
For sleek modern styling, that still has a rustic flair to it, the new country kitchen look will fit your tastes perfectly.
