Did you survive the holidays? I realize Christmas and New Year’s can be stressful or even depressing for some, but I truly hope that you were able to find a special moment to treasure. I’ll share a little snafu we experienced on Christmas Eve later in this post. Right now though, I want to show you this adorable country kitchen with oodles of storage!
This pretty and practical project is by Hill Farm Furniture, Ltd. What first caught my eye is the charming farmhouse table. But then I noticed the fabulous custom cabinetry and all the treasures it holds behind the doors.
Note how the table is positioned next to the kitchen island, providing more work top area when baking and cooking. Not to mention it’s a great way to maximize floor space by keeping the two pieces of furniture together.
Dish towels and table linens have plenty of room to reside in the kitchen island drawers, along with utensils and flatware.
Big white knobs on the custom cabinetry are a classic country staple in the kitchen.
Not only is the cabinetry exterior beautiful, but open the doors and the interior is amazing, as well! A convenient wine cabinet cradles favorite bottles of Merlot and Chardonnay while deep shelves store everyday dishes and glassware. Small shelves on the backs of the doors are perfect for holding coffee mugs and smaller items.
Light butcher block counters and an earthen tile floor add warmth to the sun-filled kitchen. A pretty floral Roman shade adds a pop of color along with a vase of sunflowers in the corner. Of course, you almost always see a farmhouse sink in a country kitchen.
To the right of the sink is another gorgeous cabinet with oodles of storage.
Open the doors and voila! Shorter space between upper shelves are perfect for holding canned and dried goods, while taller lower shelves come in handy for small appliances. This cabinet has me re-thinking my kitchen’s open shelving. I’d love to have something like this by the back door – I’d just have to find a new spot for the microwave.
I may not be able to enjoy a cabinet like this one right away, but at the very least I can re-organize my own built-in kitchen cabinet. I’ll show what I do in an upcoming post. I hope you enjoyed today’s tour of a charming country kitchen with oodles of storage. Rooms that provide both form and function are my favorite!
Oh, and that little Christmas Eve mishap I mentioned earlier? Our electricity went out for about an hour on Christmas Eve due to a car accident. We didn’t know how long the lights would be out (which also meant no heat). But no fear, I have a lot of candles and blankets and we hunkered down in the family room. Hubby brought out his guitar and played and we sat there in the candlelit room enjoying a peaceful hour together. I was almost sad that the lights went back on. Sometimes little mishaps can become moments of blessings!
