The traditional country kitchen look is next up on our trend round-up for 2017 

“Shaker –style cabinets seem to be one of the key design factors for 2017, with bold lines and less fussy detailing, while lighter wood tones suit the new country kitchen style and are becoming increasingly popular.”

Matt Phillip, Head of UK Operations, Rotpunkt UK

Traditional in frame cabinetry is always a good look for the kitchen while combining this with a modern mix of colours and finishes can give the scheme a contemporary twist. Here are a few examples of our favourite country kitchen schemes from 2017…

Teddy Edwards’ Brooklyn range takes on a dramatic British Racing Green finish. The deep green shade perfectly complements the kitchen’s heavier Georgian-inspired shapes, while matching antique brass handles, pendant lights and mixer tap add warmth to the scheme. Teddy Edwards |

Caple’s striking Winford collection epitomises the classic country kitchen appeal. The design features a solid oak frame with veneered centre panels and detailed beading, alongside lacquered oak dovetail drawer boxes. Pictured here in a subtle combination of warm oak and Mussel grey, with a sprinkling of stainless steel handles.

The Callerton Kitchen from Kitchens International takes pride of place in this Edinburgh townhouse. Traditional in style, the kitchen features in-frame cabinetry doors and vertically panelled ends to either side of the island. The pale blue hue adds a lightness to the heavy traditional cabinetry, while the kitchen is topped with contemporary Silestone Vortium worktops. Kitchens International |

Successfully showcasing two top trends, this Laura Ashley Kitchen Collection design presents a modern take on classic country styles. The deep blue painted finish is currently very popular, while the in-frame cabinetry and simple layout hark back to the traditional country kitchen aesthetic. Laura Ashley |
