Everyone wants a kitchen that’s inviting, that welcomes home family and guests. People naturally gravitate to the kitchen anyway, so why not make it a space that people feel like they can come and stay a while? At Booher Remodeling Company, we specialize in kitchen remodeling, and over the last few years, we’ve seen how adding some rustic elements in your kitchen design can actually add warmth and welcome. Here’s how.

1. Give your kitchen a custom feel.

Rustic Home Decor

When you add floating shelves made out of reclaimed wood or a wood panel wall, your kitchen will transition from run-of-the-mill to unique. Your guests will know that you didn’t source your kitchen remodel from the local home improvement store. Instead, it will speak to a custom kitchen design that infuses unique elements; it will make guests feel like they’ve come somewhere special.

2. Tell a story.

Reclaimed lumber or slightly rusty old lanterns repurposed for kitchen lighting have a history. They tell a story not only of how you’re using them in your Indiana home but also where they came from. You’ll love to tell the tale of that beautiful kitchen fireplace mantel repurposed from old barn wood or that old window rescued from a historic downtown building. Your kitchen will become part of the story, and your home will tell the tale.

3. Add “earthy” elements.

Adding wood, metal, and other rustic features in your kitchen make it feel warmer and more welcoming because you’re utilizing more natural elements.

4. Infuse beauty without perfection.

Balancing new quartz countertops and beautiful white cabinets with some rustic elements will only make your kitchen more beautiful. People will feel welcome to come and stay because you’ve created a beautiful space that’s inviting and not “too perfect.” You feel like you can be yourself and just stay a while.
