Rustic Kitchen Design Ideas

Kitchens have undergone massive changes in a few decades. The food, the decor, the gadgets everything has changed with time and now our hearts long to get back that 'oldness'. 

Now, getting those traditional  mouth watering dishes back on the menu can be easy. But what about the kitchen interiors? Aren't we, at times, bored of the ultra modern kitchen design which lacks the rawness and freshness of nature? Earthen pots, wooden floorings, exposed walls and woven baskets- oh how we miss them.

Let's get inspired by the below kitchens, try  to bring in a bit of rusticity, if not fully turn the kitchen rustic and get a little closer to nature.

A kitchen so neat and well organised can enrich your cooking experience.

The colours used here are mild and warm, imparting a subtle look. The true beauty of this kitchen indeed lies in the elements that are showcased. Instead of the high end electronic gadgets that we stuff our kitchen with, this kitchen proudly exhibits the 'down to earth' humble elements. How  soothing it is to see the glimpse of nature - in the woody furniture, the woven baskets, the floral print linens etc. The arched window space and the cooking counter too remind us of the good old of architectural concepts that are becoming a rage again.

The rustic look is complete with the use of exquisite crockery adorning the walls.

The kitchen drenched in a royal cream/off- white paint gives a peaceful look. The already expansive kitchen looks more spacious with covered cabins. Old fashioned upholstered stools for the counter make the perfect seating arrangement. Modernity is brought in by including a sleek dining table set with transparent fibre seats and stone made table top. Huge windows have made the look more pleasant.

We all know that rusticity can be equated to simplicity. But as you have a close look, you will realise that woodiness too is an element that cannot be detached from rusticity. The above picture displays just that.

The cupboards, cabinets, small dining counter-every thing is made of wood, which surprisingly does not give a cluttered look as all the items are well concealed inside them. 

The flooring too is wooden, with a traditional floor carpet to enhance the rural look.

Wood, which we have released being synonym to rusticity, is used sparingly here. But the look still remains rustic with slate floors, exhibition of crockery and metallic utensils, traditional chandeliers and large windows. The view is unique since, wood, usually covering the floors, takes  the ceiling this time.

For those who want a rustic look with a touch of modernity, this kitchen proves to be a true inspiration.

As is with any rustic kitchen, the room is saved from too much of objects. The slate floors combined with unclad walls, large windows and wooden ceiling give the required rural look while the chimney and pendant lights, photo frames on the walls make it partially modern.

Rusticity can never be confined to a particular concept. It wanders from tidiness to randomness and  light, subtle look to dark bold ones.

The above kitchen is a combination of all. There is tidiness in the wooden cabinets and  randomness in the way saucepans are displayed. Even with this unsteady mix of concepts, the look is not messy, rather interesting and dramatic.
