Choose to use open shelves for your small kitchen. Because using the upper cabinets might look too heavy. Then cover the fridge with a curtain so as not to spoil the rustic look. And add a half-high wall to create an extra U-shaped kitchen and worktop.

Another Decoration Idea For A Country Style Cottage
Country and cottage style decor uses natural fabrics, such as cotton, linen and simple self-woven fabrics. For a cottage style room, combine floral chintz, embroidered linen and sharp lines and plaid for slip covers, pillowcases, window treatments and pillows. Casual embellishments, such as buttons, fringe, piping, and soft folds add to the feeling of comfort without being overwhelming.
Red, white and blue and bright yellow and spring green are the hallmarks of rustic decor. Cottage-style decor uses pastel colors which may include pinks, soft reds, purples, soft blues and soft yellows and greens.
Natural wood or painted wood floors are the perfect companions for country style cottages and rooms. Wicker rugs or area rugs add color, tone and warmth.
