What is a rustic kitchen? A rustic kitchen is a style of kitchen that can be seen in a few different home design styles such as country style, modern style, and sometimes transitional or contemporary styles. A rustic kitchen is filled with open shelving, plenty of exposed wood, and an interesting mix of materials. Check out our country design guide to get started. What materials are in a rustic kitchen? Rustic kitchens traditionally use industrial light fixtures, reclaimed wood, or exposed brick. Anything that evokes times of old are welcome in a rustic kitchen. While you might not be ready to commit to a wood-burning stove, a wood-burning fireplace could be a nice addition. Butcher-block countertops and hanging copper pots and pans are a nice addition also. Antique glassware, pottery, or even family pictures are right at home in a rustic kitchen. How can I make my kitchen more rustic? A quick and easy swap to make your kitchen more rustic is adding a farmhouse-style table with vintage wooden chairs. Another easy swap is adding a pegboard with S-hooks or an overhead fixture to hang your pots and pans. This small change will instantly up the rustic appeal. If you’re looking for a more drastic change, mixing up your cabinets with some open shelving to display older china sets will also add to the rustic feel. Take a look at our guide to updating your kitchen for more ideas. What design and layout is right for a rustic kitchen? Traditionally rustic kitchens are smaller and include the dining table within the kitchen itself. These smaller, more compact designs harken back to the days when the rustic kitchen was in an actual country home – one that might not have had as much space as our 21st-century abodes. When in doubt, simplicity is key with rustic kitchens. A clean open layout with some simple rustic accents are a great way to start planning your rustic kitchen. How do I choose the right countertop for my rustic kitchen? Butcher-block countertops are the usual choice for rustic kitchens. However, stainless steel and marble are popular choices as well. Rustic kitchens don’t need high-end materials. Many of the best rustic pieces are salvaged from other homes, old projects, antique stores or even estate sales. By being open to alternative sources you never know what treasures you might find. Overwhelmed by all of the options and don’t know where to start? Check out our guide to kitchen countertops to get more ideas for your rustic kitchen. How do I add storage to a rustic kitchen? Country and cottage designs dominate rustic kitchen storage. There are multiple storage options in a rustic kitchen, including open shelving, some traditional cabinetry, glass paneled cabinets, and open storage. An often used design trick of rustic kitchens is hanging pots and pans from above, positioning them as a focal point in the room.

If you don’t want to harvest new wood for your backsplash project, you can take your cue from Karen Swanson of New England Design Works, who had her contractor rip sheets of found plywood into 6-inch-wide planks, and install them 3/8″ apart on the walls of this kitchen. This resourceful backsplash — a modern interpretation of shiplap paneling, Swanson explains — is painted with Benjamin Moore Satin Impervo paint, which makes it stand up well in a kitchen. “Painted plywood is not as ‘bullet proof’ as some other backsplash choices one could make,” Swanson concedes. “I would suggest wiping up spills quickly and not allowing standing water next to this — but then again, I also suggest that with a tile and grouted backsplash.”

The first project on our list features a wonderful rustic backsplash made from the reclaimed wood of old shipping pallets. You can see this backsplash is a great DIY project opportunity for your kitchen because it uses inexpensive materials to create great looking results. If you decide to have this kitchen backsplash, locate some old pallets with boards in good condition, scrub the boards clean, and cut them into smaller sized pieces.

In this kitchen, the mix of materials was created not by a tile manufacturer, but by the designer. Brigitte Fabri, CMKBD, of Drury Designs, wanted to create a “castle wall” effect in this kitchen, without detracting from the room’s focal point — the copper hood. For most of the backsplash, she chose a large scale 12×24 ‘Crema Marfil’ limestone because the larger the tile, the fewer distracting grout lines, she explains. And behind the range, she used a honed glass tile called ‘Malaga Cove Wings’ by Stone & Pewter. To add the illusion of greater height to the 8-foot ceilings, Fabri brought the tile down as close to the range as she could and elongated the niche area all the way up to the hood itself.
