Rustic kitchens look charming and ooze of a warm home vibe. So, if you want to give that kind of rustic look to your kitchen, here are some tips.
All White is All Right with Rustic Natural Accents
An all white kitchen can look sterile, but that’s not the case in this rustic kitchen. Here there are enough shades of white and enough pastels and neutrals to make the space look warm and welcoming. The pot rack above the rustic prep table becomes the perfect place to dry flowers and herbs, the glass-fronted wall cabinets show off pastel dinnerware in soft shades of blue and cream.
Show Off the Strength of Rich Woodwork
Old brick on the walls and floors of this kitchen give it the atmosphere of a convivial pub. The deep apron sink is just the thing to fill up stockpots, and the brightness of copper pots and pans, some repurposed as planters, offset the bricks, sleek black countertop and the dark woods of the shelving, ceiling and floor cabinets.
Weathered Wood Sets Off Classic Clapboard
Old and new blend beautifully in this kitchen, with its bright white and weathered wood paneled wall cabinets with simple knobs. Beneath them is an induction cooktop, vintage cutting boards and a jug of wooden cooking tools. A beadboard wall echoes the paneling, and the space beneath the white apron sink is hidden by a plain gray curtain.
Hefty Shelving Accentuates the Strength of Classic Cabinetry
Rugged woodwork dominates this kitchen. The open shelves above the sink are robust enough to hold stacks of dinner plates, glass and metal canisters and a microwave. The counter and floor cabinets with their cup pulls and hinges are pleasingly beat up. Don’t be afraid to add paintings. A picture of a ship is placed near the shelves while an ancestor scowls from a framed painting on the other wall.
Smart Detailing and Beautiful Plants Combine with Premium Fittings
This lovely kitchen is a study in black and white, crisp lines and unexpected curves. The countertop is black and roomy enough for a collection of plants and artwork, the cantilevered apron sink has room for deep pots to be filled up and easily washed. Alabaster shades from pendant lights above the ceiling give a soft light and add to the light that comes in through the interesting, mullioned windows.
Gingham Curtains Complete this All-American Country Kitchen
Gingham says “country” to a lot of people, and these simple red and white curtains bring notes of cheer to a kitchen with an otherwise subtle color scheme. Wreaths of herbs tied with red and white striped bows in the window add to the festiveness of the room, as do pops of brightness from golden knobs and cup pulls.
These are some amazing ideas to have your own rustic kitchen with neutral accents and amazing home vibes.
