Kitchens of yesteryear served the sole purpose of function: get in, get the cooking done, clean up, and get out. The kitchen is the heart of the home and a great place to entertain. For this reason, it is imperative to create a space that is both functional and beautiful. There are so many trends to consider for your kitchen remodel-such as a timeless rustic design. In today’s modern world, rustic doesn’t have to equal raw wood paneling or floors. Here are some tips for you to consider when bringing your modern rustic kitchen to life.
The transitional kitchens are one of our favorite design to explore – it offers a great variety of textural and materials combinations and includes dynamic mixture of vintage, classic and contemporary design elements. The great variety of artistic expressions and combinations offers to the designer’s freedom of expression that incorporates elements from both traditional and modern design – a trend that is just picking up speed. You can have a rustic kitchen in your trendy city apartment or an urban design with natural and cozy features. In the past few years, transitional was an important design style for kitchens; we expect to see transitional kitchens remaining popular.

The composition has a simple, clear lined construction that possesses certain elegance and modern appearance with just a hint of retro design and “old-fashioned” spirit.
A great way to incorporate rustic elements into your new kitchen is by installing a deep, industrial sink. It works both as a stylistic component and as a truly functional workhorse. This kind of deep sink will fill a soup pot effortlessly, wash your roasting pan with ease, and just make clean-up so much more comfortable. Don’t forget the faucet. Choose a high faucet with a pull-down sprayer so you can reach those hard-to-reach spots for clean up. And think of how great this kind of sink will look in your new industrial modern rustic kitchen.
