Plenty of warmth and a charming sense of style, these are the key elements of a rustic kitchen. Similar to a country style kitchen, a rustic kitchen is a combination of sophistication as well as slightly more rugged touches too. The great thing about rustic kitchens, aside from the fact that they create a welcoming space, is that they are great for both large and small kitchens alike. It really does depend on the end look that you are hoping to achieve. A rustic kitchen often has a darker, more traditional look to it and whilst you want the items within it to give off a rustic feel, you will still want them all to be made to the highest quality and have all the modern touches that make a family kitchen.
