If your kitchen design features exposed brick walls, wood-lined vaulted ceilings and simple white cabinetry, then you may want to consider a kitchen island that has a simple granite or marble countertop, but is lined with reclaimed wood shelving and a kick space under the island where bar stools will be placed. The overall effect of these materials is warm and inviting.
Adding rustic style to the kitchen can be as simple as installing a reclaimed wood countertop on an old table and painting the base in a burnt orange, yellow, brown or green. To create a rustic kitchen island that's truly part-and-parcel of its surroundings, choose woods that are indigenous to your region—oak, pine, birch, rosewood—and custom-design a kitchen island that looks and feels personal to your particular space.
Exposed beams, visible seams, aged and blemished wood—these are some of the hallmarks of rustic style when it comes to designing the home. And similar notions apply to creating the perfect rustic kitchen island.
