If you frequent my blog, you might already know that I prefer quaint European kitchens over expansive U.S. kitchens that come equipped with all the bells and whistles. So it’s no surprise that this cozy white kitchen by British Standard by Plain English caught my eye and heart all at the same time. (This post contains affiliate links.)
What helps keep this kitchen cozy looking is the light wood walls and flooring. The wood adds instant warmth without being dark and cavernous. Normally you’d see subway tile in a kitchen like this, but the horizontally planked walls give it a special flavor.
A simple, plaid window valance adds neutral color above the simple farmhouse sink. Counter items are kept to a minimum in order to enjoy the bare bones beauty of this simple kitchen.
A white counter top blends with the cabinetry and sink allowing the eye to flow through the space. A pretty goose neck faucet tops it all off with grace and style.
Shaker style kitchen cabinets, handmade in Suffolk, enjoy simple hardware while a toe hold lends a bit of detail near the floor.
The kitchen has an L-shaped layout for efficiency when cooking. White dishes enhance the monochromatic color scheme which is easy on the eyes. The refrigerator is likely placed on another wall.
This cozy white kitchen is perfect for a smaller home or even a rental unit. Be sure to see more kitchens by British Standard by Plain English. If you live in the U.S., you might be happy to know that they have a showroom in New York City – so you can get a European style kitchen without leaving the states.
