Kitchen / January 18, 2018 / Aniyah Augustine.
There is so much you can do with cabinets in a modern rustic kitchen. Take, for example, oak wood cabinets painted white. You can add modern touches, such as metallic handles, to offset the rustic look. Another idea for cabinets is all metal. Why not install metal cabinets and counters? They will help create the look of a truly industrial modern rustic kitchen.
One top kitchen design trend I love is to have sections of the upper cabinet extended onto the counter. Let's face it, we all love our small appliances (i.e. toaster oven, espresso machine) but we may not want them on display all the time. A multi-purpose kitchen island has been the go-to solution to disguise the microwave and dishwasher, but unless the island is 10 feet long, it is challenging and perhaps impractical for the island to house the small appliances we use daily off the counter. By having the upper cabinets extended to the counter and small appliances sitting behind doors, you can achieve a sleek design statement without sacrificing your morning coffee!
British designer-craftsman Sebastian Cox had designed series of kitchens for the English brand DeVol that they like to call “Urban – rustic” a very suitable name for this intriguing and artistic composition. Here are some examples of this unique aesthetics. Here we have contemporary and fashionable design elements (like lighting solution and material combinations) and high-tech appliances all clad and presented in natural and rustic style arrangement of wood and ceramic tiles.
Here is one magnificent contemporary example of the two-toned kitchen design – the saffron yellow of the comfy kitchen islands (with a horizontal bar that allows the guest to be included in the food preparation proses) is in beautiful juxtaposition with the muted grays of the concrete base of the composition.
