American, English and French Country Kitchens

American Country Kitchen-
The American Country Kitchen Style is a more rugged hand-crafted look. Cabinets in this group are typically of the traditional framed variety. More common wood species used are oak, maple birch or pine. Finish distressing as well as wood knots are excellent choices to round out the look. Wood planked floors help to complete the rugged pioneer feel in this kitchen. Ceilings that  include rough hewn beams complement this style of kitchen perfectly.

English Country Kitchen-
English Country Kitchen Style is quite similar to the French Country Kitchen Style. Similar flooring choices, countertop materials and beamed ceilings can be used with great effect for both styles. Cabinet design generally employs more square elements with curves being used in the architectural elements of the room. Pine and oak are common material selections with a natural or very light finish. Painted finishes can be used too with most of these showing a glazed finish. Crackled finishes in pastel colors are good choices to accent this kitchen. Add lots of flowers to this kitchen to complete the look.

French Country Kitchen-
The French Country Kitchen Style is a close cousin to the French Provincial Kitchen Style. However French Country is less formal and offers a softer feel. Oak and cherry materials predominate this group with pickled and distressed finishes quite commonly used. More delicate crown moldings are common in this theme. Most countertop materials work well with this theme but stay away from more contemporary glass and stainless steel. Good flooring choices would be wood, brick or natural stone. Bold colors are not a good choice in this scheme.
