A lot of the old-timey feeling will come from the architecture. Vaulted ceilings with exposed beams and weathered wood floors will add a distinguished feel to your kitchen.
Incorporating a mosaic or weathered wood floor to your rustic kitchen will add a nice touch to a rustic kitchen. You could also go with a tile floor that works well with the colors you choose, and add small but unique carpets in the surrounding areas.
Rustic Kitchen Walls
Choosing to use reclaimed wood or add a stone accent wall into your kitchen can give a decorative touch while also making it feel more quaint.
Reclaimed wood has endless possibilities, from walls to flooring to decor. You can purchase it already distressed, or take on some pallet projects if you’re feeling crafty.
White Wood Is Ideal For a Rustic Kitchen
Another trademark of a country home is white wood, whether it be walls, floors or cabinets. The brightness will open up the space while also giving it a welcoming feel.
Choosing appliances that go with your theme is important when creating rustic kitchen, but can get pricey, so make sure you settle on your theme before taking this step. A large metal hood over the stove or an antique stove can really give your kitchen an aged look.
Rustic Kitchen Countertops
Same goes for countertops, as they can also be expensive. Some people prefer granite and some like to fuse wood into their countertops, especially at the kitchen island.
Rustic Kitchen Furniture
Your kitchen table and chairs will make a distinct difference in your rustic kitchen, so choose ones that look like they hold some history. A big chunky table with wooden chairs will add that vibe you’re looking for.
Flea Market Finds
Incorporating unique and genuine country kitchen items will add to the ambiance, so keep your eyes peeled for farmhouse decor at the flea market or garage sales. Things like throw blankets, wicker baskets, and big clocks will really set the tone.
Long Kitchen Island
A long kitchen island can help for hosting, and to add the inviting feel of a country kitchen. You have endless options for countertops, as discussed above, and also for barstools, which we’ll get to next.
Again, if you’re crafty this is something you can build yourself. Wooden barstool are a wonderful addition to a country kitchen and there are tons of designs to choose from.

Picking the perfect chandelier can be difficult, but with so many to choose from we’re sure you’ll find the perfect fit. You can choose one with a distressed wood framing, one that’s made of all glass or even stained glass, or even a gold chandelier would fit with the wood theme.
