When Wayfair reached out to me and asked if I would be interested in sharing kitchen counter decor ideas on the blog, I jumped at the chance to share these 6 best country kitchen counter decor ideas with you from our very own cozy kitchen here in coastal Maine.
Welcome to My Country Kitchen
If you are new to my blog, welcome! Our home here in Maine was built by my parents 30 years ago and is a Raeside-Dame home, a replica of an Early American Home. We inherited the home two years ago and have been refinishing and redecorating it ever since, making it into our own. I love all things warm, cozy, and vintage! If you’d like to see more of the home, join me for our home tour and more of its story HERE.
6 Best Country Kitchen Counter Decor Ideas
Let’s start with aprons. Because an apron makes every kitchen cozy and inviting!
And here in Maine, you may also find the occasional ski hat hanging around too.
This blue checkered apron is available HERE from Wayfair. I think every kitchen needs a beautiful apron or even a collection of aprons how about you?
Aprons always remind me of family gatherings, cooking turkey, my mother, and all the fond memories of time spent in this cozy kitchen cooking together.
Whether you use an apron regularly or simply hang it in a corner, they are a must for the ultimate cozy country kitchen.

All year long I swoon over all the hygge homes in both Sweden and Norway. How they cherish and embrace their long cold winters with Nordic traditions and the coziest home decor ever.

So when I saw that Wayfair sold these Nordic shortbread cake pans I couldn’t wait to get one and make my first shortbread with you here today, from my mother’s cozy kitchen.

Our Berner, Ella will be joining us in the kitchen today too. She has been trying to steal this shortbread off the counter since I made it to share with you here today!
So this should be fun!
Let’s now grab that plaid blue Wayfair apron and nordic pan and let’s get back to the 6 ways to create country kitchen counter spaces as we bake this wonderful nordic shortbread together!
Wayfair sells this sleek-looking DASH Mixers 6 Speed 2.5 Qt. Stand Mixer that is both functional and stylish for a country kitchen counter.

This mixer is available in multiple colors. I have chosen white for my country kitchen counter, as I like the brightness and cleanliness that white brings to a kitchen.
And this Dash mixer is what we will use today to create our shortbread dough.

Having a collection of wooden kitchen utensils like these available from Wayfair here displayed on your country kitchen counter creates a feeling of days gone by, as well as provides the functionality one needs in the kitchen.

Country Kitchen Counter Tip!
By the way, I found this vintage wooden table while out “Thrifting with the Gals” for $15 at a local thrift shop.
It adds so much cozy charm and purpose to our vintage-style kitchen and it’s super functional for holding and displaying kitchen accessories. It basically serves as an added kitchen counter space.
Ok, the Nordic shortbread is ready to go in the oven now friends, for about 20 minutes to bake.
Get the recipe HERE.
The Nordic shortbread is now ready to enjoy.
Did you know that Wayfair has a large selection of countertop bread boxes to choose from?
I just love this Bamboo bread box on our kitchen countertop, which now holds the shortbread that I baked with you here today.
Bread boxes are absolutely a must for a cozy country kitchen.
SHOP BREAD BOXES
This bread box has strong hardy magnets that keep the glass doors tightly closed and the shortbread safe and sound from Ella jumping up on the kitchen counters to steal a bite…
Do you like these pink and white dishes? I found two sets of these dishes out thrifting for under $50 a set. See more of these dishes HERE displayed in our dining room for Valentine’s Day.
6. Toaster Oven
Do you hide your toaster or toaster oven in your cabinets and take it out only when you want to use it?
That’s what we used to do with ours. As it took up so much space on our countertops and frankly, I just did not like the way it looked.
But I just love this white compact toaster oven from Brentwood and it’s available from Wayfair HERE.
This white compact toaster oven from Brentwood fits our country kitchen countertops beautifully without taking up that important kitchen counter real estate.
