Fabulous fruit bowls

Country kitchens come in all sorts of colours, from cool cream to pastel blues and greens. Wooden worktops and copper pots are a must and, of course, plenty of rustic storage.

Turn your fruit and vegetables into a centrepiece with a wire basket - not only does it look pretty but it'll keep your food aerated and fresh too!


Stunning ceramics

Forget plain old boxes and plastic packets: in your country kitchen you'll want ceramic jars to keep your dry goods fresh. Dispense your pasta, rice and cereals from their packets into pretty jars with airtight lids to keep your food fresh in style!

You can even get hold of some tiny jars for your herbs and spices - this way your spices will always be in reach to give your meals plenty of delicious flavour.


Beautiful blackboards

Blackboards are a classic way to note down the things you need to pick up on your next grocery shop, so make sure you have one in your country kitchen. You could even buy coloured chalk and try making a little wall art!

Alternatively, you could keep track of the contents of your kitchen by getting a magnetic shopping list for your fridge: then you can take the list with you when you go to the shops.


Gorgeous glassware

No country kitchen is complete without some lovely glassware. Glass jars are great for storing everything from flour to sugar to cookies!

Glassware is also ideal for keeping drinks fresh - get your hands on a glass bottle for picnics, a large jug for lemonade in the summer, and enough drinking glasses to go around.
