7 Best Accessories for a Classic Country Kitchen
Once your beautiful country kitchen has been installed there are loads of great ways to add colour, cuteness and classic accessories for those perfect finishing touches. Vintage and antique fairs are great places to pick up some classic country kitchen accessories at reasonable prices, and browsing can also be an inspiring way to get fresh ideas and come up with design themes based around unique items.
There are also loads of retailers selling kitchen accessories with country themes, as vintage kitchenware experiences a well earned revival. 
Classic Country Kitchen
Here are some ideas to get you started, from furnishings to fabric. 

1. Picnic Hamper

When the summer comes along and dining moves outside, take your country kitchen style with you. Vintage picnic hampers not only look great as a kitchen feature but enable you to create your desired style during summer barbecues and parties too. My Picnic Days have loads of lovely baskets for up to 6 people.

2. Kitchen Compost

Pail Eco-friendly and traditional, a metal compost pail is an essential feature of any authentic country kitchen and will go beautifully with the traditional decor. Even if you don’t have the means to actually compost these pails make great bins, avoiding the need for something plastic or contemporary in the corner of your kitchen.

3. Cheese and Egg Cupboards

These little cupboards are incredibly cute, freestanding to place on units or in pantries. They are reminiscent of classic French country kitchen design, usually made of distressed wood with a mesh front. Country Cream have their own unique range.

4. Aprons

Gone are the days when aprons were a frumpy kitchen necessity. In 2016, aprons are all about beautiful design and style, and will add colour to your kitchen hanging from a set of vintage metal hooks next to the door. Buy Cute Aprons is a great website with loads of unusual prints, from vintage floral to gingham and polka dot. 

5. Cake Stands

Country kitchens are the ideal environment to do a bit of baking, and with cupcakes storming the nation as a funky food fashion, it’s just the time to get yourself some vintage cake stands to display your creations. Antique fairs and car-boot sales are fantastic places to get yourself a unique vintage stand if you have the time to browse, or alternatively there are some specialist retailers like Cake Stand Land with loads of classic designs.

6. Country Crockery

Vintage and antique fairs are the best locations for finding your own uniquely patterned country crockery. If you can’t find anything to match your colour scheme then try online retailers selling second-hand sets, or visit country kitchen shops in your area.

7. Plate Rack

Once you’ve got your beautiful vintage crockery, you’ll want to show it off. A wall hanging plate rack is an essential country kitchen feature, with some great examples on the Diborane site.
