Copper lends itself well to rustic kitchens, and this copper island kitchenhood in medium brown patina is a gorgeous addition. Your dining table should be simple and sturdy, and a heavy pine farm table is a great choice. Fixtures can range from an upscale wrought iron candle chandelier to custom lighting made from materials like driftwood or even deer antlers. Pine is also a great choice for the cabinetry, butcher block countertops and kitchen islands. Traditionally rustic kitchens are smaller and include the dining table within the kitchen itself.
Kitchen rustic design
We all know that reclaimed lumber and barn wood add warmth and history to any space it is decorated in. A handcrafted rusted metal stove hood was suspended from iron bars and timber framework in this western homestead ranch kitchen. One popular choice among rustic enthusiasts is to find furniture made from reclaimed barn wood. And they offer a unique design element — an exposed front panel, rather than sitting down inside the countertop.
Wrought iron fits with the rustic look, so incorporate some of it into your kitchen design with pot racks, recipe book stands and baker’s racks.
Black has the power to add refined sophistication to a rustic design and to solidify a color scheme by pulling it together in a timeless fashion. An often used design trick of rustic kitchens is hanging pots and pans from above, positioning them as a focal point in the room.
