RUSTIC KITCHENS: PART ONE
Rustic kitchens are a hodgepodge of materials: worn wood, exposed brick, stainless steel, woven baskets, sturdy stone and wire mesh, to name a few. Mixing a few of these elements against a white or muted background gives a kitchen a used feel thatâ€™s conducive to relaxed cooking and comfortable lounging. Here are some particularly stunning rustic kitchens with old world charms and modern-day amenities.
Example 1: This kitchenâ€™s sleek cabinetry and modern light fixture are nicely offset by the weathered brick wall and wooden floor planks.
Example 2: This kitchen exudes old-world charm with its massive, dinged-up island and exposed ceiling beams. One imagines a lot of bread being baked here.
Example 3: The wooden shelves, island and kindling make this kitchenâ€™s serious appliances seem less austere.
