20 Charming cottage-style kitchen decors

Since the kitchen nowadays is a social area and it’s even part of the living space sometimes, a cottage-style décor would be a very good choice for this area. This style is casual, cozy and inviting and it’s exactly how the kitchen needs to be. Such a décor is not difficult to create. The key is to use light colors and balanced textures. The kitchen should feel airy, bright and cozy.

Even though cottage-style decors are simple and seem modest, they are actually very elegant. Their beauty lies in this simplicity and in the small details. One of the most important aspects in such a décor is the light. The kitchen needs to be filled with natural light. It’s why the windows need to be large and the décor needs to be simple and airy. The colors are also very important. The most common color in this case is white and it’s mostly used for the walls but also for the furniture. It makes the space seem larger and the atmosphere becomes fresh and crisp.

Pastel colors are also very popular for this style. You can use tones of blue, green, light grey or beige. Make sure not to use too many colors. Everything needs to be clean and simple. The furniture needs to be simple and to offer plenty of storage space and open shelves. Wooden furniture is also very popular. The combination of white and natural brown is very beautiful. As for the decorations, it’s best to stick with the classics. These include moldings, cornices and, of course, decorations made of fresh flowers.
