Get the Look: Rustic Kitchen Tips
The rustic look is a newly popular home décor trend that we are seeing in households across the United Kingdom. You too can get the rugged and rustic look for your kitchen with just a few tweaks to your décor.
Reclaimed Wood Surfaces
When fitting out your kitchen with new surfaces, consider investing in reclaimed wood. You can use this economically-viable and environmentally-responsible material on your kitchen counters and your kitchen island. You’ll save money and trees!
Adding a farmhouse sink is one certain way to give your kitchen a rustic look. These sinks are available in ceramic and granite, so you can choose a model that suits your household’s needs and your redecorating budget.
The key to an authentic rustic look is keeping a natural colour scheme. So, stick to brown and white in your colour scheme, and mix things up by playing with different textures such as stone, wood and marble. You can add pops of colour here and there with a few small features, but stay close to natural shades, such as deep reds and greens.
Some Modern Touches
When going rustic, it is not always the best idea to go all the way. If you take things too far, your kitchen will look like it belongs in a log cabin (which isn’t a bad thing, if that’s what you’re going for). So, we advise you to keep a few modern touches in the décor. Sleek silver appliances like refrigerators and range cookers will go a long way to adding a modern edge to your rustic kitchen’s aesthetic.
