1. Rustic Kitchens

Interior decorators and designers will recreate your love for the old design by creating classic looks and incorporating vintage appliances, fireplaces, timber, stone and brick. The rustic appearance will be exemplified by beautiful flooring and table / counter tops.

The characteristic brown colour that is common for rustic designs is timeless and makes the most calming kitchen atmospheres. The kitchen island can be adorned with bar stools that tend to add character and save on dining space.

Eclectic-styled kitchens are for rebels. If you refuse the norm, then this is your style. You can mix and match designs and accessories creating your own distinct kitchen design.

These kitchen designs are comfortable and highly functional because of the open shelving, wide sinks, and the big kitchen table. The doorless cabinets makes access to utensils and dishware easy. They are warm and the classic flooring is used to dissipate the heat.

You may also use black and white checkered tiles to make it more stylish, pitchers, pottery or old-fashioned lighting can be used to add to the nostalgia. Add a few chairs or bar stools to make the kitchen comfortable for all.
