Think you know country style kitchens? Think again! You can give your classic farmhouse kitchen a 2019 update with modern kitchen appliances whilst still maintaining that rustic, countryside aesthetic. Here we take you through our favourite appliances that would make ideal additions in a country style kitchen…
Cooking for the whole family
When you have lots of mouths to feed, a range cooker is the ideal appliance to make mealtimes easier. With two spacious ovens you can cook your roast dinner at the same time as baking your dessert. A Rangemaster range cooker would compliment the style of a country kitchen perfectly. This established British brand offers a wide variety of range cookers with plenty of choice of colours and styles to choose from. From classic cream to modern stainless steel, you can choose the cooker that best suits your kitchen. Perhaps you prefer a more traditional look? With jewel tones including cranberry and racing green there is something for everyone!
Plenty of storage
If you live in the countryside, you will know that one of the advantages of having plenty of outdoor space is that you can make your own produce. From fruit and veg to freshly laid eggs, no country kitchen is complete without a spacious larder fridge to store all of your homegrown goods. This Smeg side by side larder fridge and freezer pack has a combined net capacity of 600 litres. That’s more than enough room to keep fully stocked! Keep your salad fresh in the two crisper drawers and your meat and dairy products in the roomy A+ energy rated fridge. The best thing about the freezer? You will never need to defrost again as it is frost free!
One of the most consistently used appliances in the kitchen is the tap. Therefore you want one that will last. Franke focus on quality and offer a range of different style taps to suit modern requirements including filtered water as well as boiling water taps. When you are preparing salad or fresh vegetables regularly, a pull-out spray tap is a very useful feature. Whether you are scrubbing potatoes or washing muddy hands it offers great flexibility! When it comes to sinks, a Belfast sink is a very popular choice. Ceramic sinks not only look great but they are also durable. Resistant to burns, scratches and chips, ceramic sinks are a fantastic choice in any kitchen. Shop the Caple Chepstow double bowl ceramic sink here.
Lucky enough to have a separate laundry room? A quality washing machine and tumble dryer set is certainly top of the list when it comes to appliances. Make light work of your laundry with a large capacity washing machine. Some LG models have a 12kg capacity meaning you can wash bulkier items such as dog blankets and bedding as often as you need. A Samsung QuickDrive model is another great choice. QuickDrive models can reduce wash cycles by up to 50% which is perfect if time is of the essence.
