Solid wood kitchen cabinets are a popular option for country style homes and choosing bespoke colours for your cabinet frontals is a great way to create the look you want. With a range as wide as Farrow & Ball’s, even choosing between different shades of white for your kitchen doors can seem daunting! We have compiled this guide to provide guidance on the best colours to use in a country style kitchen, for those looking to achieve a homely, rustic look.
The white kitchen doors featured in this kitchen are painted in Farrow & Ball’s All White and are a perfect example of how the shade can be used to create a country look. Attention to detail includes the use of traditional-looking appliances and features that have been used to enhance the country appearance of this inviting kitchen. All White is the purest white offered by Farrow & Ball, and is a brightening shade that creates a traditional look in any home. Creating a cosy, country style with such a stark hue can be achieved through use of complementary accessories and details – the full stave solid oak worktop provides a lot of warmth.
Clunch is a soft, chalky white with a yellow undertone. The chalkiness of the shade evokes a familiarity with period properties and the yellow base provides warmth for a welcoming feel. A solid oak worktop paired with white kitchen doors in Clunch is a fantastic way to create a traditional look for a country kitchen. This shade would work well with a walnut worktop, or any similar deep-hued timber, to create more of a contrast. Paired with matching kitchen shelves, Traditional frontals in Clunch are the perfect white kitchen doors for a country kitchen.
James White has a calming, green undertone that works particularly well in a country kitchen thanks to the pastoral feelings it evokes. These white kitchen doors featuring this slightly off shade are a great way to hint to the look with a less bold statement, whether a subtle nod to period British racing green cabinets or modern sage green options. We love wicker storage baskets as an alternative to drawers in a country kitchen, and think Traditional frontals in James White would be the perfect complement to these.
