The word “rustic” means country, relative to the countryside. Here in Brazil, it can also be called “caipira”. Therefore, a rustic kitchen must have characteristics that refer to country life in all its simplicity. In general, the materials used are acquired from nature, such as clay, stone and wood, as well as other elements that refer to the farm environment, such as exposed bricks , rustic floors, colored fabrics and, mainly, the furniture that must match the expected expectations for the environment.

If you like the rustic style, and live in the city, there is still no obstacle to adapting your taste. With the right tips and materials, you can have a fantastic environment, even if it’s not in the countryside. Some decorative items can help create a more country atmosphere. Just right colors and everyday products can also help create the perfect setting for your dream rustic kitchen. Check out the step-by-step instructions for a rustic kitchen:

  • 1st step:  look for a qualified professional to develop the kitchen renovation project or new work (he must collect RRT, in the case of architects, or ART, for engineers – this is a mandatory item by law, and it is your safety). Afterwards, hire a designer, who will make a complete executive project of the work, which allows greater control of execution, making the work faster and more accurate.
  • 2nd step:  present to the professional designer all your wishes, desires, and tastes, so that the project comes out exactly as you imagine.
  • 3rd step:  assemble a spreadsheet with deadlines and expenses, so that there are no unpleasant surprises along the way, nor anything that needs to stop the work in the middle. There are professionals who help in this, the designer himself has the skills and qualifications for this function.
  • 4th step:  be as faithful as possible to the developed project, as any change could harm the entire project, and with that compromise all stages of the work, such as: deadlines, values ​​and quality of service.

The market has a range of industrialized products that imitate rustic materials, so you don’t need a country house to give a kitchen a rustic feel. The most important thing is to keep in mind that the traditional farm buildings used materials available in nature.

Therefore, it is interesting to abuse the use of wood – such as, for example, demolition wood, exposed bricks and clay (such as mud and adobe). Check below some tips from architects José Carlos Guerra and Lucianna Carla Pezzolante Gerghi :

1. It takes a lot of wood and iron

https://www.tuacasa.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/cozinha-rustica-3.jpg

As it is an organic material, wood needs special attention, as it will be in direct contact with a wet environment, in this case, the kitchen.

According to José Carlos, today there are specific products for treating wood, “most of which are fungicides associated with water repellents. These products are also presented as pigments to give color to the wood”, explains the architect. Iron also has the same problem as wood, that is, in contact with water it can rust and corrode.

Therefore, “it must also receive a specific treatment, but the market today has some materials that are resistant to these problems, such as patinable steel”, says José Carlos. And, most interestingly, the combination between the two materials is extremely pleasing to the eye.

2. Look for wooden furniture with little treatment

Furniture with raw wood, patina or demolition wood is amazing in the ambiance of rustic rooms, and there are numerous companies that specialize in this type of furniture on the market. But, pay attention to the advice of the architect Lucianna: “it is noteworthy that wood is an absorbent material, and must be waterproofed to be used in kitchens.”

This type of material is perfect for the composition of cabinets, countertops and tables. However, its use is not recommended on the cooking bench, precisely because it is a porous material.

3. Transform modern furniture into rustic ones

https://www.tuacasa.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/cozinha-rustica-5.jpg

Your dream is to have rustic furniture, but have you just bought furniture that has a very modern look? Roll up your sleeves and get down to business, because it’s possible to give him another face. Of course, it all depends on the finish used in the new furniture, but it is possible.

“The furniture must be sanded well, so that it becomes more porous and ready to receive a paint or varnish. The paint can be lacquer, latex paint or PVA. To give it an air of worn patina, light sandpaper should be applied to all the furniture after painting, taking care to always sand in the same direction”, advises Lucianna.

There are numerous ways to do this kind of work. If you are afraid of not liking your final result, trust the project in the hands of professionals specialized in these transformations.

4. Cabinets don’t need to have doors

https://www.tuacasa.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/cozinha-rustica-6.jpg

Large farmhouses often have the walls of their kitchens lined with cabinets. And not all are the same. Some have doors, and some don’t, for example. The cabinets without doors are charming, but to use them, you must be careful to keep everything organized and have the utensils always at hand.

However, “closets without doors require more care in terms of cleaning and organization, since everything is very exposed to the dust and grease inherent in cooking”, explains José Carlos. “Curtains were also widely used in furniture in old farms and rustic houses. Today they are being reused in a more optimized way and with better finishes”.

5. It’s worth using shelves

https://www.tuacasa.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/cozinha-rustica-7.jpg

Unlike cabinets without doors, there are shelves. More practicality, impossible. But they need to be even more organized than cabinets without doors because, with them, absolutely everything is visible.

According to José Carlos, it is necessary to redouble the attention with shelves that are in places of passage and that are low, as they can cause accidents. “There is no standard height for shelves. The ideal is to fix them at an accessible height for the person who will be handling the utensils”, explains the professional.

6. Wood oven is a good choice

https://www.tuacasa.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/cozinha-rustica-8.jpg

Wood oven is a charm, and the food that is made in it has, without a doubt, a special flavor. If you want to invest in one of these, pay attention to the space. In addition to the oven itself, it is also important to reserve a space, beside or very close, for storing firewood. “It is also necessary to have exhaust ducts,” explains Lucianna. “It is not advisable to use this type of oven in apartments”.

7. Wood and marble combine well

https://www.tuacasa.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/cozinha-rustica-9.jpg

The combination of wood and marble is also valid, but with attention to use. “Marble can be used on the cooking bench or on a support bench, although it is not the most used material when we want to give a rustic feel to the environment”, explains José Carlos.

As it is porous, the use of abrasive products to clean marble should be avoided. The environment takes on a rustic-chic look, as marble is, by nature, a finer and more delicate material.

8. Wooden doors with glass

https://www.tuacasa.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/cozinha-rustica-10.jpg

PHOTO: REPRODUCTION / DETAILS MADE WITH LOVE

The kitchen entrance door and the cabinet doors can gain a powerful ally to make the environment more beautiful: the glass. The double wood and glass is always interesting. Just pay attention to the type of wood used. Depending on the material, you can have a kitchen that looks very rustic, or very modern.

9. Use burnt cement sparingly

https://www.tuacasa.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/cozinha-rustica-11.jpg

Who doesn’t remember those old red burnt cement floors , the famous “vermilion”, much used in schools and rustic houses in the past? These floors are very charming and durable. With the use of white cement it is possible to obtain different shades of colors, creating infinite decoration possibilities. Therefore, burnt cement can be used as long as it is very well executed.

“You should always use expansion joints, as it is a material that suffers a lot of shrinkage and can cause many cracks. On the other hand, today there are very resistant epoxy floors on the market with several color options. Among them, there is the option with the appearance of burnt cement”, explains José Carlos. The “heavy” aspect of the floor can be compensated with the use of materials with lighter colors, generating very interesting results and combinations.

10. Apparent brick is all about rustic cuisine

https://www.tuacasa.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/cozinha-rustica-60-730x410.jpg

The exposed brick is very reminiscent of old farms, so it combines a lot with rustic environments. But he needs some care. “Since it has the seating joints in low relief, it causes an accumulation of dust and grease”, explains Lucianna.

There are several products on the market for treating exposed bricks, and each one has a specific use and application for each use, such as: outdoor areas, kitchens, among others. If you choose to use exposed bricks, look for a quality product to apply and keep your kitchen more dust free.

11. Colors are welcome

https://www.tuacasa.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/cozinha-rustica-61-730x486.jpg

Rustic environments don’t necessarily have only wood tones. You can vary and insert small touches of color, such as beige, brown, ocher, white. If you’re not afraid to innovate, it’s worth investing in yellow, red and blue, which are primary colors. “Colors that don’t match in a rustic environment are very warm and vibrant colors like orange, hot pink, lime green, among others”, explains Lucianna.

“But what is most expected are pastel colors, since on the farms, the paintings were made with lime-based paint, and it was not possible to get very strong and vivid colors with this material. As the buildings were maintained over longer periods and the materials used had less durability, the finishes and paintings had a wear look, thus creating a very specific aesthetic characteristic”, says José Carlos.

In cities, houses are getting smaller, but the idea does not apply when the house in question is in the countryside. If you have the space, invest in a large table with plenty of seating for your friends and family. The tiles that decorate the edge of the hood and serve as a fireside stand are a charm in their own right.

12. Floor to ceiling wood

A good space in the kitchen, both in height and in width, allows for a multitude of ideas, such as colonial-style cabinets, throughout the entire length of the room. On the floor, if the bead is more expensive than expected, instead of using wood, use ceramic that mimics natural grains, or vinyl flooring – both are easy to clean and “deceive” the eyes. The same idea can be applied to wall coverings.

For an even more country house feel, use an L-shaped dining set with chairs and bench. The idea of ​​the bench makes the environment seem more inviting, and it’s perfect for rooms that don’t have a lot of space. Called the “German corner”, these benches are available in various versions and sizes, and some of them even have the plus of being a trunk! Complete the decor with a small bar and wall-mounted dishes.

48. Total white look

Full white can be applied to rustic kitchens as well. If possible, use approximate variations or shades. The inspiration for this room is the Scandinavian decor. The use of light colors, such as gray, wood tone and cream (from the fridge) is in balance with the furniture and the grouting of the tile – even it makes a difference!

49. Open spaces

Environments that are interconnected need to have everything in place so it doesn’t look like a mess. Here, the kitchen, pantry and dining room are integrated. The idea is to explore everyday items to compose the decoration, hence the merciless use of shelves on all walls.

50. Pizza oven in a rustic space

The rustic kitchen is even more beautiful with a wood oven for everyday meals. But, if possible, add a pizza oven to the project as well – and preferably a brick one, to give it all that charm. In addition to the round ones, the oven can also bake delicious breads, which will perfume the entire environment.

51. Field gray

The field flowers have bright and charming colors, which are beautiful used in decoration. But there is also the “country grey”, which is a light gray, somewhat pale, often used in country houses. In cities, architects tend to explore the strongest color, a dark gray, which borders on industrial. The lighter version creates a mild and bucolic atmosphere, perfect for rustic environments.

52. Midas Touch

According to Greek mythology, Midas turned everything he touched into gold. The gold is beautiful and enchants in the decorations. But, for a more rustic decor, the metallic tone that matches the most is copper. Invest in small coppery details in the room, and give the Midas touch your way.

53. Use space to your advantage

It’s not because an environment is rustic that it needs to be dark and small, or with so much stuff to make it look smaller. Use light wood to compose the kitchen. On the floor, to give a greater feeling of spaciousness, invest in slats or sheets of wood in one direction only.

54. Dark wood and marble

Dark wood cabinets are imposing, and are prettier if used in environments with a lot of space. In the same environment, use marble and stainless steel pieces, the combination leaves the kitchen with a refined air.

55. Overdose of details

Anyone who loves to cook and is also a detail oriented person knows the martyrdom of having everything at hand to cook without fear of lack of utensils and, at the same time, having everything organized. Calmly, it is possible to give a home to each item in the kitchen. Even a little plant! Missing place? Nothing! The chandelier is there to be used… Also as a support for vines (choose a fake, artificial version, so as not to overload the wires).

56. Cappuccino, the color of choice

Cappucino has become the color of desire among decorators, and is a charm both inside and outside the house. Use one color as a base, and variations on it in detail. For example: the color applied to the wall, and tones in the same scale (or palette) in furniture and decorative objects.

57. And the leather?

If you are one of those people who have several preferences and cannot decide to use just one of them when decorating, this is a great idea to build a rustic space: invest in wood and leather (here, on the stools, around the table). If the environment permits, use coating that imitates wood or brick.

58. Use white as a base

No need to cross the street to avoid entering an antique shop! Go in and buy anything you like! In order not to make a mistake when putting everything together, choose to use white walls and wooden objects or furniture. Thus, it is possible to mix a few touches of color and something or other of a different style, without creating visual clutter.

59. Subway tile

The famous subway tiles are also used in rustic environments. To make the room visually larger, the grout can be white, to create the feeling of spaciousness along with the wonderful “u” countertop.

60. Beams and Columns as Allies

Some buildings do not allow you to camouflage or remove beams and columns. And as the saying goes, “if you can’t with them… join them”. The idea, then, is to use the problem as part of the decoration. The wooden beams were beautiful combined with the white ceiling, the table and the hood.

61. Chalkboard on the door

The barn door may be a charm on its own, but it gets even more charming when it takes on yet another function. Use specific ink and create a blackboard on the door, perfect for jotting down messages for the family, shopping list and even the menu of the week.

62. Much love for plate holders

Wooden cabinets are available in several versions: modern, antique, vintage style… But no option can beat the charm of wooden plate racks! This kitchen also has other charming features, such as the sink with a different tub, the embroidered curtain under the sink and cabinet handles and iron handles on the shelves.

63. A kitchen on the porch

Some houses have two kitchens, one inside and one outside the house, as if it were in the backyard, porch or even a “continuation” of the house, on the outside. If that’s your case, opt for a more modern kitchen inside the house, and let your imagination go outside.

64. The charm of stainless steel

Wood on the floor, cabinets, wall, window and ceiling! Each of the choices made with great care, so that the woods were different and didn’t fight each other. The use of stainless steel electrodes and inserts gives a modern touch.

65. MDF will do too!

There is no comparison for the practicality of planned furniture! Even though they’re not solid wood – with that beautiful robustness! – (they are usually made of MDF or MDP) they can serve to create environments with a rustic style. Carefully choose the color of the furniture finish and, if possible, use one that has some kind of texture.

66. When the kitchen is the heart of the house

69. Home appliance tower

The most modern kitchens today always have a tower of appliances, with an electric oven, microwave, among other options. Here the idea is the same, but with small replacements (or adaptations) to the rustic style, with a wood-burning oven and a style that leaves anyone in love with kitchens drooling!

70. Rustic shabby chic

https://www.tuacasa.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/cozinha-rustica-84.jpg

Shabby chic is a decor style that mixes old (and cute), semi-rustic (country house inspirations) and modern elements. The combination is always a charming picture. The curtains, which serve as the door in the closets, are the style’s trademark and cannot be missed!

There is no 100% right or wrong in the decoration, what counts is the combination being beautiful in the final result. So, if the idea of ​​a rustic kitchen appeals to you, but your home is not like a traditional farmhouse, no problem. It is even possible to create a rustic kitchen integrated with other rooms with a modern look, such as the living room or dining room.

If you’re opting for an integrated rustic kitchen, the other rooms should have a lighter decoration, with furniture with straighter lines and more neutral colors. The encounter of environments and styles clashes can generate very pleasant and beautiful solutions, but it is always good to plan very carefully so as not to obtain unexpected results.
