19 Most Gorgeous French Country Kitchens

If there’s one type of kitchen that I continue to fall in love with, it’s French country kitchens. I find them super charming and elegant in so many ways.

The kitchen is a place where we prepare meals for our family and friends. It’s such an important part of the home, and most of all, it’s one of the most functional spaces we need! Check out some of our favorite kitchens in the French farmhouse style below!

  1. Good Morning

    All these kitchens are way too sterile and not for people who actually cook nor are they actually French. I do appreciate you sharing but the topic is misleading. I was hoping to see actual French rustic kitchens.

    1. Maybe not completely French, but do have French elements. I’m quite inspired by some of these and I’ll take the bits I like and mix with ides of my own to create my own French-inspired kitchen ?

  2. I live in an ancient palazzo in a medieval hilltop town in Italy, but as I adore genuine 18th century french armoires and other cupboards for my informal spaces, my kitchen is entirely French provincial, complete with those 18th century armoires and cupboards and my Lacanche cooker. I so wish this fear of colour and attributing it to the French (who traditionally adore colour) would hurry up and pass because there’s nothing more beautiful than a real traditional French (or Italian) kitchen


    1. Wow your kitchen is gorgeous! I agree, there is a big fear of color. I do think the Italians do color fabulously! Yellow and blue are some of the best “hues” I see in Italy! Thanks for sharing!
