Are you thinking of decorating your kitchen in a rustic style?

The best way to decorate a kitchen in a rustic style is to start thinking of images, colors and adjectives that come to mind when you are picturing the countryside. When they think rustic, most people imagine a quiet, clean, cozy and warm atmosphere filled with the smell of freshly baked bread. Consequentially, one idea would be to choose orange, light red, yellow or brown as your main color themes. Given that the cabinets will occupy a fair portion of the total space, you should select typical rustic kitchen cabinets
made of solid wood, such as cherry or maple. Even though natural wood looks amazing and inspires the idea of a cozy cottage in the countryside, an alternative is to paint the cabinets white.
If there is one thing that should not be found in a rustic kitchen style, then that is any form of contemporary-designed appliances. However, the good news is that you can use the cabinets to keep these modern conveniences out of the line of sight. In order to complete the idea of the rustic style kitchen, you should select the appropriate accessories to decorate the room or package some of the modern appliances. For instance, a wooden bottle cover is the ideal way to conceal that wine bottle you just purchased from the supermarket.
