December 5, 2018

Are you looking for the best way to create your premier rustic kitchen? This very popular style is a great choice aesthetically and can also raise the value of your home. You can’t go wrong! When preparing for a remodel, there are a few things to consider along the way. Be sure you learn the top features of rustic kitchens, go-to lighting advice, and how to tie it all together with quality Denver granite counters. 

Features of Rustic Kitchens

A rustic kitchen has that down-to-earth charm. Something about it just draws you in. It feels like home. Filled with natural hues and tones, you’ll find them to use beiges, yellows, browns, white, and other natural colors on the walls and in the design. All fixtures looked aged, but do not have to be old, or worn. This can include cabinets and tables constructed of antique or reclaimed wood. The ceiling itself may be of wood, with beams running alongside. Flooring can be hardwood with character, or stone with a distressed pattern. In fact, distressed is a great way to describe the rustic vibe. To complement the walls, flooring, and more, use antique décor. You can find a perfect array of items at great prices in local antique shops. 


As you decide on the perfect lighting choices for your rustic kitchen, natural key. Rustic kitchens have soft yellow lighting. The more natural light you can get, the better. For your needs that natural lighting can’t meet, choose antique fixtures. Consider adding a grand chandelier that floats over an island or table. You can also use other hanging fixtures and lamps to add in. Look for unique repurposed items, such as lights made of mason jars, or old lanterns. Get inspiration from these upcycled lamps and lighting ideas. If you are crafty, you can even create some of these on your own!

Tying in Granite Counters

Granite counters are perfect for a rustic kitchen theme. They are unique in nature, available in a variety of colors and patterns. You can opt for the traditional rustic color palette of your walls, or spice things up a bit to add a pop of color. Your local stone company can assist you with the perfect pattern that goes with your décor. Ideally, white, beige, or cream are great routes. When choosing a pattern, choose a simple one that will keep a consistent look and feel. You can look online and research how to choose the perfect granite for your Denver home.
