Contemporary country kitchen
Universal Magazines

This new kitchen combines traditional elements with simple modern design principles

“Updated from an older, country-style kitchen with separate dining, this neutral modern hub is a great example of how to incorporate distinct yet connected zones for storage, preparation and cooking. The original English and American Shaker aesthetic has been maintained to encourage cohesion throughout the home, but modern industrial touches and beautiful big windows bring the outdoors in and add colour to this neutral space. Storage is amply provided for, with corner cabinets and counter level doors a perfect place to stow pots, pans and your favourite appliances. A dishwasher and prep sink in the dining room allows for easy socialising with guests while you set up and clean up, while a breakfast bar at the island bench makes a great option for casual meals.”
Designer: Kia Douglas, built by Western Cabinets


Expert tip: A similar colour palette and fixtures, differentiated by complementary textures, create a cohesive design scheme throughout multiple rooms
