How to create a modern rustic kitchen

It’s often said that the kitchen is the heart of the home, so it’s no wonder a kitchen makeover is at the top of many people’s lists when it comes to renovation. A style that never goes out of fashion is the cosy, modern rustic look. Combining the best bits of a warm and inviting cottage kitchen with twenty-first century demands for high-spec, high-tech spaces, it’s a style that’s a clear winner in most people’s books. These kitchen decorating tips can help you achieve the sought-after scheme in your home.


Give country classics a modern update

It’s no surprise that wooden details are bound to appear in any country-inspired kitchen, but for a modern update, make sure any wooden features have a sleek, sharp finish and incorporate clean, straight lines. The other classic components of countryside kitchens can be given a contemporary twist too; try a range cooker in shiny stainless steel, and swap the iconic white ceramic Butler sink for an inset, under-counter version, contrasted with matte black hardware.


Create a rustic feature wall

You don’t have to change all of your existing wall surfaces to create a rustic vibe; one statement feature wall can have a big impact. Our reclaimed Tudor brick slips are a true classic to decorate with; featuring a textured, rough finish, these tiles are a shortcut to creating an authentic country-style aesthetic in your kitchen. Our handy coverage calculator can help you to work out how many tiles you need.


Think less is more

One feature of traditional country kitchens to leave behind is the cluttered, everything-on-display look. Instead create a sleek, minimal vibe by storing all dinnerware within cupboards and keeping counter-top items to a minimum.


Don’t be shy with your styling

You’ve made a statement with the backdrop, so don’t forget to style your reclaimed brick feature wall with statement decorative pieces, such as an oversized clock or large, colourful canvases. For an updated countryside twist in the rest of your kitchen, swap traditional chintz fabrics for bold, dramatic prints.


Make use of light and colour

 For an instant update to the classic, country style, include modern lighting features like colourful LEDs beneath cupboard trims and embedded within baseboards, plus sleek ceiling spotlights. Don’t be afraid of updating your use of colour too; mix and match between classic chalky pastels and pops of neon brights.
