Designing Your Hill Country Kitchen

Designing the perfect kitchen in your home can be tough. From picking out flooring, countertops and accent pieces, there can be a lot of options to choose from. Keep reading to get some tips for your perfect Hill Country kitchen.

Bring in the outside

A classic Hill Country kitchen reflects the Hill Country itself – so bringing in the surrounding outdoors is the best way to create the look you’re going for. To bring in the outdoors, look for items like these to add to your kitchen:
  • Choose a wood tone from your area and use it for cabinets or exposed beams
  • Pick a stone finish for your countertops that reflects your area
  • Stick with a rustic color palette (light blues, yellows and oranges)
  • Go with natural finishes over glossy ones

Keep the lighting natural

What better way to bring the outside indoors than by being able to really see the outdoors? Your Hill Country kitchen should be filled with natural light and big windows. Adding your own light fixtures is good for extra lighting, but be sure that the fixtures aren’t too modern. Sticking with rustic accents for your lighting is the way to go.

Add simple furniture

A house is a house because of its structure, but it becomes a home because of what you make it to be. Adding simple furniture can be a good way to tie in the whole kitchen. A large kitchen table with a simple build is part of a classic, rustic design. And of course, a wood table is always recommended.

Make it cozy

Finish off your perfect Hill Country kitchen by adding all the personal touches that will make your home cozy and welcoming – just like the Hill Country makes most people feel. Seating with soft cushions and reducing excess clutter will go a long way in making your kitchen a more cozy place to spend time with family and friends.

Remodeling your existing kitchen

If you aren’t starting a new build, but you want the perfect Hill Country kitchen, consider a total kitchen remodel. Remodeling allows you to give your entire kitchen a makeover that is in tune with your tastes and desired style. It’s a great opportunity for installing new and improved kitchen appliances, and to make cosmetic changes to kitchen features like countertops and cabinets. A total remodel is a great way to boost your home value and will turn your kitchen into the heart of the home.
