French country décor is meant to evoke a sense of rustic comfort. Furniture and accessories are elegant, yet they are designed with a refined approach which avoids ostentatious design flourishes.
French country décor is meant to evoke a sense of rustic comfort. Furniture and accessories are elegant, yet they are designed with a refined approach which avoids ostentatious design flourishes.
Cabinets selected or built for a French country kitchen should fit with this mindset. In high-end kitchens they will be manufactured from lighter-colored hardwoods with a distinct grain, creating a warm and welcoming feeling which doesn’t overwhelm the centerpieces of the décor. Some homeowners choose to distress or antique the wood finish for a more-authentic country look, or to paint the cabinets in muted shades of cream or beige. Light glazing for the cabinet doors is also a possibility.
Less-expensive stock cabinetry is often made from MDF or similar pressed-wood products, and finished or painted in subdued earth tones. With the current popularity of French country design, these cabinets are easy to find in a number of appropriate finishes at prices which won’t bust the budget.
French country kitchen cabinets are likely to have grooved facings, and may feature sedate yet intricately-created scrolls, carvings and moldings (which would be simulated on MDF cabinetry) in order to replicate the feel of Louis XIV design sensibilities. Crown molding is a good choice to frame the top of the cabinets, and while these approaches may not be fully authentic, some choose to use beadboard facings or place skirts at the bottom of their cabinetry to add to the warm appearance of the room.
Hardware on the cabinets in a French country kitchen will most often be made of wrought (or antiqued) iron, bronze or brass. They may be moderately ornamented, but these fixtures should blend with the overall light and airy feel of the kitchen, rather than add a sense of heaviness.
A final touch would be to hang copper pots next to the French country kitchen cabinetry, completing the rustic 18th century look.

When thinking about French country kitchen cabinets, look for options that are crafted out of manufactured or solid wood in order to create a stable structure for prized kitchenware. Most are crafted out of various kinds of wood which feature details such as scalloped fronts, crown moldings, recessed panelling and scrollwork which adds character and depth. Design expert Billy Cotton suggests opting for French country kitchen cabinets with both cupboards and drawers to give yourself extra storage space in your dining area. There will usually be interior shelving and cabinet doors that close on metal hinges with some containing front glass panels. For any drawers, there will either be waxed or metal drawer glides which may be soft-closing. To add further personality as well as function, there will be hardware and cabinet pulls that could be black antique metal or vintage-style iron, brass, or bronze.
