I know that most people visualize a very casual farmhouse when they picture trending rustic kitchen ideas, but I actually think that you can be quite refined even when categorized as this trend. Whenever I want to dabble in this style without going overboard, I look into adding rustic kitchen island ideas like we did in the home in these photos. By sticking to just the island, you infuse touches of this popular trend without limiting the possibilities in the other areas of the room or even your home. As always, you want to make sure that beautiful kitchens enhance your home rather than box it into a particular style or color palette.
If you are into rustic kitchen ideas, this home is definitely the place to begin building your design inspiration from. In general I tend to shy away from rustic kitchen ideas pictures because they are a little bit too unrefined for my more elegant decor taste. There is something about this home that still exudes a classic elegance despite the more rustic decor foundation. I think that they were able to achieve this by using a high end cabinet design with a lot of decorative detailing that you would normally see on traditional white cabinets, but then they kept the wood unfinished and rugged. These rustic kitchen cabinets have definitely opened my eyes to a whole new world of style that I would have never considered before.
I've gotta admit that I am a little bit on the fence about the rustic kitchen ideas that our new home came with. I am all for some unique design inspiration, and I actually really do like a more down-home decor, but the full on stone backsplash and range hood does take it to a little bit of a new level. I think this is one of those decorative pieces that you really have to go with and make the rest of the style of your home reflect this focal point. To be honest, I am not sure if I am ready to commit to that yet! I have always had a more traditional decor preference so this is a bit of a departure. Although I have been browsing through some kitchen ideas 2020 to formulate a plan for what to do with our home, I cannot say that I am terribly inspired yet.
I am very intrigued by the concept of these rustic kitchen ideas that feature huge stone hearths put to use in other ways than your traditional fireplace. When people hear about rustic kitchen designs, most picture a more country style decor with white farmhouse cabinetry, dark floors, and a classic marble or granite countertop. Although homes like this are certainly different than those conjured up images, I think that I actually like this more earthy strong style more. I am sure that something like this is far more costly than your average kitchen backsplash ideas, but it makes a much bolder statement and really sets a cool tone for you home.
Anybody who has ever spent any time designing homes with me knows that I absolutely swoon over rustic kitchen ideas. This certainly doesn't mean that I want to live in a farmhouse or anything like it, but I love the contrast against ultra sleek and modern stainless steal appliances against really earthy and rough looking wood accents. This home is one of my favorites that I have found because the country kitchen cabinets are so bold and have, dare I say, a slightly contemporary edge. The ashy undertones make the finish very different than that typical warm pine that you see in a lot of actual farmhouse (or grandmas) kitchens.
In my opinion, rustic kitchen ideas are usually a bit cliche and too "country" for my taste (I am not a huge fan of the rooster decor palette), but this one absolutely works for me. This design door rustic kitchen decor to the next level by planning it on in a way that makes the space feel like an Old World villa rather than your typical farmhouse look that usually is associated with this trend. The theme seems to be bold and oversized in here, with the strong wood beams accenting the tall ceilings, and the gigantic kitchen island with huge accent posts at the end. This is probably one of the coolest kitchen island designs that I have ever seen, and something I would definitely try to replicate in my house if I had the space.
