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.
And of course for the ones that prefer more natural and stylish appearance wood is always a beautiful and aesthetic choice. Lately, the Reclaimed wood countertop becomes a hot choice for kitchen design – it is sustainable and Nature-friendly, so it is a conscious choice. It’s well known that using wood, unlike natural stones such as marble and granite, is an environmentally more sustainable resource because wood is renewable and using reclaimed wood is even more so, because of is double use. So reclaimed wood countertop is not only carrying irresistible charm and personality into your kitchen design but is also the right choice for the planet.
Woven coppiced-beech panels – a typical Cox touch, are used on the backs of some of the cabinets small design elements like drawers and sink unit are adorned with round copper-lined holes for opening, while the cupboards have little wooden knobs made from matching wood. Combining dynamics and expressive materials palette: copper, wood, marble, and glass; the designers entwined the rustic charm of a cottage with the high functionality requirements of modern life.
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.
