The plate rack
Still a favourite accessory in wood or painted kitchens, this simple but winning design keeps plates in order and to hand. It’s the look that really earns it its place in the country kitchen. Rows of wall cupboards can look cumbersome and the plate rack is an effective way to break up the space, adding a dash of natural wood into the scheme. Often made to size by your kitchen company, there are a few stand alone pieces available, such as this wall-mounted plate rack, £115, Within.
