How to Recognize a French Chic Kitchen

French Chic Kitchens are very similar to farmhouse style kitchens as they share many design cues. This style of kitchen generally has more emphasis on exposed appliances such as a range cooker and exposed shelving. The cabinet design itself is also very important – French Chic Kitchen cabinets are often painted timber with inset detailing. These kitchens also feature traditional or original features such as exposed wood beams.

Fun Facts:

French Chic Kitchen interiors originate from many years of evolving kitchen design with a focus on traditional furniture, cooker hoods, and crown moldings. These kitchens feel both homely and elegant with huge practical accessories and decorative aspects. Charming rustic accents have influenced this kitchen design style with hints of Parisian shabby chic. Today, these original and Parisian elements are the foundation pieces to French Chic Kitchens but we see more modern elements mixed in too. Painted timber cabinets for example that create a colorful take on this style. Natural finishes such as raw wood exposed shelves and architectural features also inform this style.

Style Clues

This style often includes:

  • Warm and natural finishes, such as wood
  • Light and neutral tones form part of the color palette
  • Painted timber cabinets with inset detail  
  • Large and exposed range cookers
