If your style is a little bit chic and a little bit country it can be hard to find the right balance when it comes to your home. There is a certain sense of comfort that comes from a rustic kitchen, but on the other hand there’s a simple subtle elegance that completes a modern kitchen. We can help you find the perfect farmhouse industrial balance you’re looking for.
Farmhouse style is all in the details, so Elmira’s Antique Collection is the only logical place to begin. The appliances offer a unique antique kitchen atheistic with a warmth and charm that could make anyone feel at home. The relatively neutral color palette is essential to any part of modern design, but the quaint genuine Nickel or antique Copper trims are what make these antique appliances so versatile. It’s important to retain a natural look and each kitchen appliance is hand-buffed to bring your design full circle.
Rustic style home décor is a form of interior design that is truly able to turn something rugged into something beautiful. That’s why we recommend on retrofitting your kitchen appliances with a reclaimed wood accent. It’s not only functional for any design aspect, but eco-friendly as well. Reclaimed wood adorns butcher-block countertops, cabinets, or even the kitchen table. We recommend using Pine for the most authentic rustic design; however, it can be soft, so if you have an active family it is susceptible to dents. In that case hickory, alder, and cherry are great options as well.
Some people are born with a great eye for interior design. Others read this blog. Here are 3 simple tips to help your modern kitchen achieve the rustic chic vibes you’re looking for.
All Natural: Rustic chic focuses on natural materials such as wood, stone, brick, and metal. Juxtapose an Elmira stove with copper trim and an exposed brick backsplash or repurposed wooden barstools. Combing steelworks with raw textures is perfect for toning down your industrial pieces and giving your kitchen a down-home, farm-like feel.
Get Thrifty: On a budget? We recommend visiting your local antique stores or thrift shops. They are loaded with farmhouse treasures at a dirt cheap price. For instance, give old glass bottles a new life by using them as pendant lights or paint some wooden crates to use for storage.
Country Color: to keep the industrial country balance, color is everything. You can never go wrong with neutrals but if you want to stray from ordinary try muted shades. For example, consider painting dining room chairs a rusty shade of red or mustard yellow. If you want to stray even farther…an Italian-inspired patterned backsplash combined with some open shelving or an antique stove can keep it cozy.
Now that we’ve equipped you with all the rustic chic essentials you are ready retrofit your kitchen into perfect country-modern harmony. Remember tips, take chances, and creative before your dream kitchen is never too far out of reach.
