Wren’s Top 10 Tips: How to Create A Trendy Traditional Kitchen


#1 Cabinetry Designs


For the authentic traditional look, Wren’s Country range is perfect with detailed cabinetry. Wren’s framed Shaker style is super versatile and is a popular in period and new homes. Not forgetting of course, the period Edwardian style which is beautifully classic.



#2 Colour It Up


Fresh earthy tones are perfect for a country style kitchen such as Wren’s Thyme, Parchment or Sea Foam colour pallets. However, the new-look for traditional kitchens has seen a pop of deep or retro playful colours such as cute Cotton Candy or classy Blueberry matt.



#3 Mixing Materials


By mixing chunky real timber worktops with Wren’s stunning Xena Quartz is a winning combo for a traditional yet modern take.

It creates practical zones for seating arrangements or even work spaces.



#4 Open Dressers


Display your personality by showcasing your vintage glasses and pretty plates to create that nostalgic feel.

Wren can create any bespoke features for you such as country dressers, open shelving or open-end islands.



#5 Feature Sinks & Taps


Think decorative brass or copper taps combined with a traditional Belfast sink or if you’re going for a more contemporary look opt for a black Belfast sink!

Make your sink a focal point by facing it towards those stunning country views… bliss.


#6 Quirky Handles


Showcase your personality by choosing cute rustic handles – don’t got for one style, choose a couple!

To keep that traditional timeless look we’d opt for the Jessica Aged Cup Handle combined with the Chloe Aged Brass Knob – they offer a real rustic look.


#7 Traditional Appliances


If you’re lucky enough to have period charm in your home be sure to show it off, if not a beautiful natural lintel is a great addition above your cooker to create a real feature.

If it’s an alcove, add some traditional tiling too with a stunning Rangemaster – for a modern twist choose the jet black Rangemaster Infusion with an induction hob!

#8 Statement Flooring


We’re in love with statement flooring… vintage parquet and huge slate tiles are great for a country look, however for a twist why not add some funky designer lino or reclaimed tiles for that stand-out look.

Herringbone flooring (and tiling!) is making a comeback and we can see why – it offers a real retro look, perfect for a traditional kitchen.


#9 Cook’s Table


An elegant cook’s table sits perfectly at the end of a feature island creating a neat workstation for specific tasks. There’s space below to keep all the tools you need within reach.

For that country charming look opt for a solid wood butcher block – perfect for keen chefs!


#10 Make a Splash


And the final piece of advice for your perfect country charmer is to add Wren’s Tek Wall as an extended splashback by your oven or sink.

Go for natural tones with Wren’s Xena Quartz which has classic veining patterns that mimic elegant marble or granite or continue your metallic theme with a stunning gold feature wall.
