Incorporating Rustic Elements
Rustic kitchen designs are not wildly popular as they only account for 2.21% of the 1.78 million kitchens examined in a recent design survey. However, this design is versatile as it can be adapted to a variety of kitchen styles. Farmhouse, Mediterranean, or Southwestern kitchen designs can also have rustic elements in them by using the right type of materials, colors, and furnishings.
The colors found in most rustic designs are earth tones. Along with earthy colors like brown or tan, they can also include blues, greens, gold, and gray colors as well. These colors are found in the undertones of wood flooring and cabinets, the countertops, and in the furnishings found in the kitchen.
If the cabinets or walls are painted, then they will usually be white or a light earth tone. For instance, light blues and greens are popular choices due to their earthiness. To get more ideas about using earthy colors, here are some rustic kitchen design ideas.
Types of Rustic Materials
Rustic kitchens include the abundant use of natural materials like wood and stone. Usually, the cabinets, center island, breakfast bar, and flooring will be wood. Some rustic-style homes may also use wide wood planks to cover the ceiling or the walls to create the aesthetic.
Stones tiles may also be used as flooring, but stones can be used to construct a hearth around the stove, or a pizza oven made from stones may be in some kitchens. Most countertops are usually made from stone as well, such as granite, quartz, or soapstone.
Borrowed Design Elements
Rustic designs can pull elements from what are normally other kitchen design styles. For example, open or glass-front cabinets, usually found in eclectic kitchens, can work well in rustic designs. Farmhouse sinks, usually seen in farmhouse-style kitchens, are often used in rustic kitchen designs too.
If you like using natural elements to create a rugged look, consider a rustic kitchen design for your home.
