Top 6 Country Style Kitchens

The kitchen is the heart of the home.  A place to socialize share food, entertain, meet the family informally.  This collection of kitchens demonstrates many of the patterns from 'A Pattern Language' the architectural bible for many natural builders and architects.  All of these kitchens have a similar, simple and very quaint appeal.  There is so much to love about these little kitchens.  They very much look like they are in a scene of days gone past, like a little prairie house kitchen, or a kitchen from a pioneer home.  You can see that more people are going back to older ways and styles of living, like homesteading for example.

Homesteading is the way of life that lives by using what you have and not wasting anything, or buying anything unnecessarily.  A frugal homesteader always thinks, can I make it, can I borrow it or can I trade for it, before buying anything new.

 You always want to make sure that you are not producing more waste than needed.  In the world of consumerism, this can be tough for some people, but it will be one of the ways that we change the world.

As you can see, in most of the kitchens, everything that is needed is on display.  This works very functionally to help the dwellers save time.  The natural wood is so beautiful in all of the kitchens, as well as the adobe or earth made walls.  It looks so natural and really quite beautiful.  The fire places or stoves being the central heart of the kitchen was also very common in past days, and most of the kitchens in this post have that same idea.  A place to gather on a cold night, to cook food on, and to hang the clothes to dry.  All of these kitchens have so much character and warmth.  Check them out in these great photos!
