What better way to create a welcoming, homey kitchen than with rustic kitchen decor? If you want a kitchen that evokes simple living and old-fashioned charm, this may be the style for you. While rustic style can be taken in a number of directions, from French country to log cabin, reclaimed woods and metals are a must. While you browse thousands of photos below, keep the following rustic kitchen ideas in mind.

Go Rustic Chic

For a kitchen that’s at once elegant and laid-back, you might go for a rustic chic look. A French country kitchen with plenty of wood, mosaic tile and cheerful colors can be an incredibly inviting place to cook and entertain. To achieve the look, incorporate sunny yellows, greens, reds and blues in your cookware, tile and kitchen linens. Go with rustic kitchen cabinets made of wood and featuring plenty of detailing. Stone, ceramic tile or wood all work well for flooring or countertops in a farm country kitchen. If you need an island, consider simply using a wooden table. Open shelving can also look good in rustic country kitchens, and you might consider displaying your pots and pans on a hanging rack or a pegboard. Try incorporating farm style motifs of roosters, pigs and sunflowers to further add to your French country decor.

Go Rustic Country

You can also keep things classic and go for a rustic log cabin style. Think warm woods, stonework and rich finishes. To make the space feel a bit more luxurious, take inspiration from stately lodges and chalets. If you’re starting from scratch, one of the best rustic kitchen designs is to go with a high, vaulted ceiling with exposed wooden beams. Dramatic chandeliers or lantern-style pendant lights can both add golden lighting. You might also choose a knotted wood with lots of character for your country kitchen cabinets.

On the other hand, you can also go with a white rustic kitchen for a more open, airy look. Pair white walls with metal accents in browns or blacks. To keep the space looking truly country style, contrast these austere finishes with floral curtains, dish towels or tablecloths. You can also incorporate stand-alone pieces of furniture, like an armoire or buffet that can be used for rustic kitchen shelves.

Go Modern Rustic

While it might sound like an oxymoron, a modern rustic kitchen is ideal for those who want a space with plenty of character that also avoids feeling dated. To achieve this balance, take rustic style in a more industrial direction, with metal bar stools, exposed Edison bulb lighting and sleek stainless steel appliances. Paired with reclaimed wood or stone, these sorts of finishes will give your rustic kitchen a modern sensibility. For a rustic kitchen island, you might pair a wooden base with a sleek marble or granite top. In general, rustic kitchens benefit from pairing a variety of materials and finishes together. Brick, wood and metal can all work together in a modern rustic kitchen to add layer and depth.
