Rustic kitchens often have a regional American flair: Adirondack or Pacific Northwest, for example. Others resemble a lodge or log cabin.
The interior design for rustic decor is rich in symbols and meanings and decorating your home with such artifacts is a tribute to our ancestors and a pledge for continuity. The easiest to decorate in a rustic style is the kitchen. Luckily rustic pottery and rustic furniture have functionality aside magnificence.
The simplicity of the rustic style does not spoil its beauty. A rustic kitchen is the best place to gather around with your friends and family, to spend a fairy-tale like Christmas, to teach your children how to respect the values of the past.
The rustic feeling in interior decorations is given through design with the materials used, the colors employed and the message you want to convey. In a kitchen you’ll need to use natural wood, traditional pottery (preferably terracotta or other earthenware, as porcelain is more recent and too sophisticated), had-knotted carpets and folk art.
While you take care of these accessories, don’t forget the functionality. Plan the kitchen to be comfortable to use. Place the sink (the famous Belfast sinks could be a great choice to complete the interior design rustic look you wish for) near the oven, the fridge within a reachable distance, preferably opposite to the worktop.
Don’t be afraid to mix multiple types of natural stone – such as granite and marble – with wood cabinets. A custom range hood with wood mantel and a tile backsplash highlight the Wolf range.
