Rustic kitchens often have a regional American flair: Adirondack, Southwestern, Mountain West or Pacific Northwest, for example. Others resemble a lodge or log cabin. The traditional farmhouse or apron sink is a very popular trend in kitchen sinks currently. Apron sinks have a high back, and a low front that often juts past the front of the cabinetry that surrounds it. They are often made from materials as cast iron, or natural stones such as granite, limestone, and soapstone. A rustic style kitchen can be a really beautiful and attractive feature in your home – a place that friends and family will love to congregate.
Common characteristics include cabinets in knotty pine, hickory or alder; ceiling beams; and warm, rich shades of brown, red, green and yellow. Due to the cozy and comforting look that the rustic decor provides, it is still popular in the apartments and modern homes. It gives a certain natural yet modern feel to the house and make it pleasant and inviting.
