And of course we can choose the one that best suits our personal taste and the environment we have; because it has to be said, some of them, although wonderful in their appearance, require space that we may not have and others will exceed our budgets or our expectations to renew.
Origin of rustic kitchens
Among the options for decorating kitchens is the rustic style. This type of decoration responds to an evocation of traditional rural kitchens. And by itself the name identifies what we can expect from this decoration, because rustic is synonymous with peasant or country, a purely rural, where as we know, the decorative elements and natural materials abound.
To decorate a rustic style kitchen, we must take into account the space, because although it can adapt to small environments, the kitchens of yesteryear used to be spacious. But we must also take into account the use of elements such as traditional ceramics, earthenware, wooden furniture, curtains with country prints, and natural wall colors, because the main feature of this decoration, is the total naturalness.
Materials of rustic kitchens
To start we can appreciate how one of the keys to achieve the style, is to bet on natural materials such as stone, wood and iron. We would save a lot of work in the decoration, if the walls are built in stone and if the ceiling implements large old wooden beams. Although our walls and ceilings are simply made of concrete, this does not prevent us from achieving the desired style, we will only need a little more rustic accessories and creativity, two things totally within our reach.
Rustic kitchen colors
As you will also see, adopting the kind of natural materials mentioned above will push us towards a palette of earthy and grayish colors, which are far from giving our kitchen a somber look as you might be thinking when reading this. On the contrary, since they are colors that combined with light tones such as white and pastel yellow give us some of the most comfortable and beautiful spaces.

This is a rustic kitchen much more avant-garde, with an urban touch, since the furniture combines wood with brick. It also incorporates a countertop in the center of the kitchen with numerous compartments. However, in this case, the stove has been replaced by a ceramic hob and some decorative details such as a steel ladle.
A good natural light, also very important within this style, will make our spaces look super cool and spacious. There are a lot of lamps that would adapt very well to this style. In these photos you can see some examples, such as wicker or iron lamps.
