Beginner's Guide to Crafting a Cottage-Style Kitchen


Creating a classic cottage-style kitchen is a great way to add a touch of coziness and charm to your home. 

Whether you’re looking to update your existing kitchen or starting from scratch, there are so many ways to design a homey atmosphere that encourages people to linger and enjoy the space.


When choosing a color scheme, bring this look to life with pale, natural colors. Whites, beiges, and  blues are all great options for a cottage style kitchen.

Cottage Colors


Open Shelving

Utilizing open shelves in a cottage-style kitchen adds visual interest and texture to a cottage-style kitchen. It’s the perfect place to show off vintage finds and other collections. 

Many cottage-style kitchens feature a charming window seat with decorative pillows or a small upholstered sofa to make the space cozier.


Comfy Seating

Use salvaged wood for shelving, islands, and cabinets to instantly add character to your cottage style kitchen.


Reclaimed Wood

There are so many options when it comes to cottage style kitchen islands. Choose a classic white look, a distressed wooden counter, or a vintage piece of furniture.


Kitchen Island

An old cabinet can be repurposed as storage for dishes and cookware. Vintage pieces such as hutches, buffets, and bar stools are a perfect way to mix old with new.


Vintage Details

Add floral accents to your cottage style kitchen for a touch of charm and character to the room. Bring in  a vase of fresh-cut flowers or patterned wallpaper.
