What is the urban rustic kitchen design trend?
The urban rustic kitchen design trend is something that has gained a lot of popularity over the past year or so, with both home owners and property developers. This trend involves combing elements of rustic or country kitchen design with industrial kitchen design. But what does this mean in practice? And what should you consider when creating this in your property?
What are the considerations when creating an urban rustic kitchen?
There are a number of considerations to bear in mind if you are to achieve the perfect effect when creating an urban rustic kitchen. These include:
- Using unfinished natural materials- a central part of the design style for an industrial style kitchen is the unfinished metals and materials used across the kitchen. When this is combined with the rustic style, you can change the metal elements to natural ones. What this means in practice is using unfinished timber or timber effect cabinets and work surfaces to create the perfect blend of the two design styles.
- The colour scheme- industrial style kitchen design is often described as cold by those that don’t like this style. But this coldness can easily be countered in an urban rustic kitchen by using the warm, natural tones that are usually associated with country or rustic style kitchens. This can include warm tones of timber and natural stone that really tie the design to the natural elements.
- Lighting- in any industrial style kitchen, the lighting is usually exposed, modern Edison style bulbs or pendant lighting. To blend this with the rustic style, you can consider glass pendant lighting with brushed copper or brass.
- Texture- in a rustic kitchen, natural textures are often used to create the perfect design. This can be added to an urban rustic kitchen with ease. The unfinished timber and stone add texture alone, but so too do the unfinished lights and brushed metals. This is an important feature for an urban rustic kitchen, as the texture should really stand out.
