You’ll see rustic and country designs everywhere these days, used in anything from furniture to wedding décor. The rustic element gives a quaint, cozy feeling to whatever it’s being used in. This feel is perfect for your kitchen – the heart and soul of your home. The easiest way to add a touch of country to your kitchen during a remodel is by choosing a rustic wood for your new kitchen cabinets. There are a few types of wood we recommend as being the best suited to create that rustic feel in your kitchen design.
Choosing Cabinets for Your Rustic Kitchen
Pine is a popular choice for rustic cabinets because it contains the knotty look that rustic furniture is well-known for. It’s readily available and reasonably priced for kitchen remodeling on a lower budget.
Cherry is known for being on the high end of the wood cabinet spectrum. It is a very strong wood and will not easily warp, dent, or crack. It’s gorgeous if you want a dark wood appearance. It begins at a rich reddish brown, and will darken more with age.
Rustic birch is another great option for your country kitchen. It’s affordable and a strong hardwood and it also paints and stains well.
If you want a one-of-a-kind, unique look for your cabinets, go with hickory. The knots, color variation, and mineral streaks give you a great rustic appearance. It’s a very durable wood that holds up well to daily wear-and-tear.
