3 Design Ideas to Create a Rustic Kitchen August 30, 2018

3 Design Ideas to Create a Rustic Kitchen, ,

If you want to update the look of home interiors, a kitchen remodeling project is an excellent place to start. When deciding on a design, there are plenty of reasons to add a country-inspired theme to the list of options. Rustic decor and light, airy colors will make the space appear cozy and inviting. Here are a few design ideas for kitchen remodeling projects with farmhouse accents.

3 Tips to Create the Perfect Country Kitchen

1. Use Vintage Fixtures & Appliances

To create a rustic-chic effect, synonymous with country kitchens, bypass modern fixtures in favor of reclaimed materials. Brushed nickel or copper faucets and sinks will give the room a lived-in quality. Instead of installing stainless steel appliances that blend in with interiors, look for vintage finds. A refrigerator style from the 1950s or 1960s, for example, will add an interesting focal point to the space.

2. Splash Walls & Cabinetry in Pastel Hues

Opt for soft pastel pigments for cabinets and walls, as they will help open up the space. Pale yellow can conjure the feeling of sunlight, while light blue is similar to the clear sky, and green is representative of nature.

3. Consider Wooden Surfaces & Storage Areas

To add texture and depth to the room, replace your current countertops with reclaimed wood installations. You can extend the look to a kitchen island, which can double as a place for food prep and casual dining. For more storage, consider placing an antique, wooden armoire against a wall or in a corner. Open shelving areas can be used to display knick-knacks for an eclectic feel.
