French Country Kitchen Ideas

You may be asking, "What is a French Country Kitchen?" Good question. It doesn't mean that everything in the kitchen is French or country. It is actually a decorating style that combines elegant décor with a touch of country-style embellishments. I really like the style.

Distressed furniture accompanied by a crystal chandelier is not unusual in this type of décor. Rooster décor is prevalent for country dinnerware and accessories rather than French dinnerware sets that are actually made in France. Stainless steel dinnerware and appliances are also used in this style.

Rather than stained wood cabinets, painted and distressed cabinets often make up the ambiance of the kitchen and elegant, quartz countertops are not uncommon. Antique kitchen canister sets can add a stylish but rustic look to the countertops.

French Country Dinnerware

French country dinnerware is usually kind of fancy, but casual, and it doesn't draw too much attention.



The Mikasa French Countryside pattern is perfect for a French Country decorating. It's simple but classy with its raised ridges and scalloped edges. The shade of white will not clash with other accompaniments that you choose for your table.




Another great idea for dinnerware is a simple, but elegant set of metal dinnerware. The Wilton Armetale Country French 3-Piece Dinnerware Set will be a great add to a kitchen decorated with the French country concept.
