Inspiration: 22 Rustic Modern Kitchen Designs

Rustic Meets Modern Equals WOW!

Whenever we hear the word “rustic,” what comes to our mind is wooden features in different areas of an interior. There might even be brass features as well. It could be far from a modern style that is neat and sleek. But did you know that it is actually possible to combine both? Yes, designers found a way to combine a rustic style with a modern design. And the result is just lovely. For sure, it isn’t what you are expecting because a rustic modern kitchen actually looks really nice.

Today, we are sharing kitchen interiors that have a unique twist in them. It would be rare for you to see rustic modern kitchens but they do exist. If you have that desire to add wood in your home, you will surely like the kitchens that we will feature today. Most of the time, wood is used for the cabinets but it would either be painted or other types of finished will be used for it. But when the wooden texture is retained, that would entirely be a different story. Aside from wood, the kitchens below also have other rustic features in it like its lighting and even its furniture. Scroll down and take a look at the images of rustic modern kitchen designs.
