Country English Kitchen

Posted on | November 3, 2009 | 6 Comments


I love simple kitchens in soft earthy shades. An English kitchen is utilitarian but remains homey with interjections of antique tables and objects. Exposed beams and butcher block counter tops further warm up the space. Below built in cabinets line a wall next to a large kitchen table. A work surface can be added or removed based on your needs. The open storage below the cabinet allows for storage and easy clean up. Check out more of the home on lightlocations.com.

    Very pretty. We’re going to be looking for a table like the one in the pictures soon. Something sturdy that can do double duty as a kitchen table and a work surface. I’m going to look at Ikea, but I wish I knew of a source for old kitchen work tables (at a reasonable price).

    Thanks Jane. Hopefully we’ll get some more projects done in the next few months.

    Mopar–Farm tables are really hard to find cheap. My best suggestion would be to search fleamarkets. I found my wood table on the street…someone was throwing it out!
