What Houzz contributors are saying:
Country kitchens (just not in orange). While 1980s florals aimed for a rustic ambiance, so too did many of the decade’s kitchens. The farmhouse kitchen was a big look. Cook spaces decked out with wall-to-wall pine cabinets may look cozy, but the orange shade of wood favored back then also could put you off your microwave dinner.We still love our country kitchens, but the look is completely different, mainly because of the paler, more stylish oak we opt for today. We also experiment with other surfaces, mixing and matching for a more interesting look. The kitchen here has all the elements of a rustic cook space, but with a twist. Wood teams with painted surfaces, while a concrete countertop adds an industrial edge.Check out more farmhouse kitchens on Houzz
2. Textured pavers. Requiring a bit more upkeep than perfectly smooth concrete, textured pavers are a more rustic flooring option that still bring an exterior vibe to a kitchen. This is a super durable material that also can be an affordable one. Just be sure to check with the manufacturer or retailer about the best way to seal the pavers from the inevitable food and drink spills.
