With earth tones and natural materials portraying the beauty and character of France, the French Country design style perfectly blends comfortable living with authentic cooking in the kitchen. Cozy and rustic, French Country kitchens have a near timeless appeal. You'll find wide-planked floors, antique hardware and more in the kitchen to create an authentic French Country atmosphere.


French country kitchen designs place heavy emphasis on the culinary experience. Cooking utensils, pots and pans are typically displayed for easy access as well as visual appeal. You'll also find flowers, fruits, wine or bread on display in a French country kitchen to further delight your culinary senses.

Dress up kitchen cabinets with wire grille door panel inserts or leaded glass doors, or add lights inside cabinets to illuminate. For a truly authentic looking French country kitchen, cover walls and paneling with lavenders, cobalt blues and antique white paints.

A honed granite or marble countertop can also be used for a more earthy and country appeal.
