            Rustic Kitchen Ideas

            From dresser cupboards and classic cooking equipment to wooden surfaces, these rustic kitchen ideas inspire ways to capture an organic, lived-in look that makes a space feel homely, handcrafted, and nostalgic. Each of these ideas covers the main criteria for achieving a homespun interior, and show how to strike the right balance between pure colours and raw materials that celebrate the natural world. Homely is the keyword to remember for rustic kitchen designs, so functional elements, like larders and open shelving, should be prioritised with this kitchen style idea for a room that is practical with plenty of charm.

             

            • 1. Dairy tones

              Keep the base of a scheme simple, like @Jurassic_properties_lymeregis, by choosing cream units that can be accessorised with earthy hues.
            • 2. Laidback lumber

              Commit fully to an organic look with oak cupboards, and enjoy the warmth and authentic character wood effects bring to a cooking area.
            • 3. Pick peninsula

               Choose a family orientated, peninsula floor plan, as seen in @swl_joinery's design, which provides for more seating space for family dining. 
            • 4. Statement solid wood  

              Layer up texture, like @lifeofcharlouise, by using solid-wood surfaces that proudly show the raw and unique quality of natural materials in all their glory.
            • 5. Characterful cladding

              For a quick rustic kitchen idea,  fit tongue-and-groove wallboards that add depth to a design and can be painted in any colour of choice. 
            • 6. Show off storage

              Think practically when planning storage. @thebarn_onthefarm1 keeps plates, pots, and serveware close by with open shelving in their dresser unit. 
            • 7. Cater for one and all

              Create a focal point in a rustic kitchen design, like @hhtiling, by using freestanding cooking equipment, capable of serving a banquet for all the family.
            • 8. Retro treasures

              Give the impression of a home that has been passed down through generations with weathered handgrips in a vintage style and finish. 
            • 9. Wooden solutions

              Introduce glimpses of nature by having timber door balconies fitted inside a larder unit, for a rural-feel pantry just like @bobbins.at.home.
            • 10. Fit-it-all furniture

              Max out on storage using a classic-style display cupboard, and personalise it with artisan pieces, family heirlooms, and trinkets picked up on travels.
