A wooden house, a shop and a stove - if you imagine your country style, then your ideas are far from the truth. Pay attention to the photo - today the rustic-style kitchen is at the peak of popularity, and not only in private houses. Country styling is often used in the design of apartments in high-rise buildings, and the design of a kitchen in a rustic style is not just permeated with the spirit of antiquity: it is a cozy space for family gatherings, reminiscent of a grandmother’s village house.

Country style implies several directions. This is the stylization of rural life, characteristic of a particular country. In this perspective, there are different types of country:
- Italian and others.
Country music can be safely called the international style that united the traditions of people from all over the world.
All of them are united by one thing - reproduction in the interior of the living room of the main features of a village house, combined with ergonomics and convenience, comfort of modern life.
Important! The simplicity, simplicity of the interior, natural materials, a lot of kitchen utensils and textiles, man-made objects of decor - this is what is characteristic of the style that resembles the atmosphere of antiquity.
Antique furniture is very harmoniously combined with modern appliances.
You should not completely reproduce the “village hut” in a high-rise apartment and build a stove, install a wooden bench. Enough to maintain the main features in the interior, correctly placing accents - the style of the village will be harmonious.
The city apartment looks very nice bright interior in a rustic style.
For a rustic kitchen interior design, as the photos demonstrate, natural colors are typical - pastel shades of beige, yellow, gray, milky. The colors of wood, clay, sand, sky, sunset - everything close to nature. When creating an interior of a country, it is important to combine shades with each other, creating a harmonious space, not dull.
Saturated muted colors perfectly fit into the interior of a kitchen in a rustic style.
You can add to the light tones of the walls, the ceiling is more saturated, but not flashy - red, grassy, orange, rich shades of blue. These bright colors will create color accents, they should not be much, and it is advisable to use them only for decorative objects - a bright painted jug, colorful curtains, a tablecloth embroidered with scarlet poppies.
Violet shades very harmoniously complement the wooden furniture in the kitchen in country style
For a large kitchen, you can use the colors of natural wood: light - for the walls, dark - for furniture. The photo shows that in the design of a small kitchen in a country house, the abundance of wood will visually reduce the space, it is better to stay on plain walls, and make furniture a few tones darker, but do not choose completely dark shades. Another option for the interior of a large kitchen space in a country house - on the background of dark walls - a bright kitchen corner will look easy and harmonious.

For the design of the walls in the kitchen in a country house it is better not to use modern materials - plastic panels, vinyl and non-woven wallpapers will definitely be out of place. And the tile on the floor is also undesirable. If you can not do without it, try so that it does not stand out particularly against the background of the rest of the furnishings and furniture, but merge with them, do not create dissonance.
The use of natural materials in the decoration of the kitchen in the style of country creates a warm, cozy atmosphere.
- In a village house, in an apartment, making out the walls, it is best to opt for whitewashing with water-based paint, white or with the addition of color schemes. For more stylization of rustic comfort, you can not ideally align the surface, let them be with small irregularities, roughness.
- It is possible to use decorative textured plaster for decoration, it can give some negligence, roughness and unevenness to the walls.
- Another option is the imitation of brick, masonry, which can be created with the help of clinker tiles. You do not need to use the “masonry” on the entire wall, you can perform such finishing only on a part of the wall, and make another part with plaster, creating an imitation of whitening peeled off from time.
- Wood - natural lining, veneer, MDF - another option for the design of kitchen space in a rustic common style. For a small country kitchen, this design will not work: choose it in a room that has enough lighting, otherwise the walls will “crush” and instead of nostalgia for your grandmother’s house, irritation and depression will appear.
- Wallpapers - simple, with a simple pattern, colorful pattern. As an option - on a part of the wall, you can use wallpaper with a natural landscape, the image of the window, behind which the course extends, field. These wallpapers will help to create a spatial volume and visually expand the room, increase the area of the kitchen.
Light painted walls will be the perfect backdrop for furniture made of natural wood.
