Rustic kitchens in stone and wood designs

Stone and wood are the main elements regarding rustic interior designs. The wooden furniture is the most suitable for country style decorations and this is because the wood conveys a sense of warmth and also adds a traditional touch.


The stone also plays a fundamental role in the rustic style. We normally would find this material in modern structures and in sets of furniture, accompanied by wood because the combination between both materials belnds in perfectly and we get a charming rustic decoration.

Rustic cement kitchen


The biggest hit right now are the cement kitchens. They give a slightly darker image but they are contemporary because they have a touch of color, they look great with wood elements (countertops or shelves). This is a truly practical material for cabinets, walls or even on an island. This way, you will get a rustic kitchen with a different touch.


To achieve a personal space, minimalist and with a cold spot, you should choose a kitchen of cement (because it is a material that lasts a lifetime). There are several types of color and this is due to the application of pigments. We will obtain polished cement in variety of colors and different results in glitter and matte.

Chic Rustic Kitchens

We are certain that you have questions just by reading the title of this section. What makes rustic kitchens chic? Well, kitchens that use a lot of wood, hydraulic or white tile and mix contemporary furniture with vintage and industrial design, convey a very cozy look.

In many aspects it resembles the neorustico style, not only because they are one of the most popular styles at the moment, but also because they mix styles and furniture of different times, but they differ in that the chic style has far too many decorative elements, whereas the neorústico is the most sober of all.


The “chic” style for this type of kitchens comes mainly determined because it is conceived as a style that may seem as dark or “strong” as the rustic one but that can seem much more refined or that can have a design in which furniture and colors combine to make our rustic kitchen look much more modern.

The chic style is also very bohemian and, therefore, is quite fashionable. This is a style that is characterized by the mixture of materials, colors, textures, furniture coming from different times and styles, like we can see in the following images.

Tips to decorate your rustic kitchen

Rustic kitchens are characterized by traditional elements, but they can always have a rustic look with modern furniture. Thus, we will now give you a series of tips to help you decorate your kitchens.


  1. To get a rustic and country style the best option is to choose wooden furniture. This material conveys warmth and it also bring tradition and harmony to the kitchen.
  2. Another option to take into account is to paint wooden furniture in white and ocher tones, combined with varnished wooden doors.
  3. A variation of the above would be the furniture of construction without doors of wood. You can put cloth curtains, which can be cheaper and that can go really well in a country house.
  4. We can replace high furniture with open cupboards that are suitable for both large and small kitchens.
  5. Another way to decorate your kitchen is to replace the high furniture with wooden furniture, thus we will achieve that rustic style that we are looking for. One tip is to paint the work shelf the color of the wall so everything combines better.
  6. An Office table made of wood or metal is ideal for breakfast and lunch.
  7. To gain space use wooden benches. You can place on each side of the table a bench that has the same length as the board. Add cushions independent of the tones that predominate in the space and you will see how they hardly occupy any room and, at the same time, are very decorative.
  8. If your kitchen is small or you do not have space for a table, place a breakfast bar with stools underneath, which will give a light and dynamic look to the kitchen.
  9. The kitchen countertops should vary, always according to the decoration and how the kitchen should choose the best combination for the countertop. Natural stones such as granite and marble are ideal for a field kitchen, but if the furniture is clear or you can choose wood you should, because it will be the best combination.
  10. Do not forget when it comes to colors that brown, wood color and gray, stone color, are essential, but you can also introduce others that will allow you to get some light when decorating in small spaces. Out of all, the white color is the one that will be essential when combining. This color is also currently trending.
  11. You should also bet on ceilings that are outstanding and if you have one that’s high or very high it will be a matter of taking advantage of that in order to be able to count, for example, with a ceiling that is made of wood, either with strips of beams or beams that are also characteristic of the rustic kitchens.
