It’s never been easier to have total control over the look of your space. You can style each room to evoke exactly the right feeling the moment you walk in. These days, people spend a significant portion of their time cooking and hosting gatherings, so it makes sense to pay special attention to how your kitchen is designed. Transforming your kitchen by embracing the rustic style will make cooking the perfect meal for yourself, friends, or family, even more delightful, and will help guests feel warm and welcome. The best way to begin the perfect rustic kitchen transformation is by starting with rustic range hoods. In this blog, we’ll go over the rustic style and why a rustic range hood is the easiest way to get started with your own rustic kitchen transformation.
What is Old World Rustic Style?
In short, old world rustic style is a design aesthetic that draws inspiration from traditional European and Mediterranean influences. It seeks to create a charming atmosphere by embracing aged, weathered, and often imperfect appearances that evoke a sense of history and timelessness.
A rustic kitchen has all the fittings of a modern kitchen but also brings the charm of an old-fashioned Euro-styled home to create a warm and inviting atmosphere. The rustic style contrasts the often pretentious look of modern and contemporary styles that may seem unwelcoming.
Textures such as hand-hammered copper, natural wood, and stone will create a handcrafted look that will instantly give your kitchen that aged charm. Breaking up these textures with solid neutral tones will keep the textures from overwhelming the eyes and making your kitchen feel stuffy. Adding some rich greens throughout can help bring the space together and add a bit of farmhouse flair.
Shifting or remodeling the style of your kitchen can seem rather daunting. To make the process easier, we suggest you start by picking out one of the larger appliances in your kitchen, such as your range hood.
Leading Your Style
The centerpiece of any kitchen is the range hood. Due to its size and position in the kitchen, a range hood is often the first part of your kitchen someone sees. Consider it the conductor that not only guides the other components of your kitchen in the look but also unifies them as well. That’s why it’s especially important that you explore rustic range hoods and find the one that is perfect for you and your kitchen.
The Best Copper Range Hood
Copper range hoods add a distinctive and eye-catching element to the kitchen and can also increase the value of a home. With its warm, reddish-brown tones of copper, the ZLINE Convertible Designer Series Copper Wall Mount Range Hood (8667C) captures the full beauty of copper effortlessly. A hand-rubbed 7-layer copper finish creates a unique and aged appearance for a rich, inviting kitchen atmosphere. The best part is you’ll still find this range hood offers many modern features like dishwasher-safe stainless steel baffle filters, built-in LED lighting, and a high-performance 4-speed motor.
The Best Wood Range Hood
Wood range hoods bring warmth and natural beauty to the kitchen by harnessing the textures and colors of real wood. The ZLINE Convertible Vent Wooden Wall Mount Range Hood in Walnut (KBRR) enhances the overall design of the kitchen with a cozy and inviting appearance that will transcend passing design trends. With walnut hand-finished pine wood and a sturdy stainless-steel inner frame, this wood range hood will delight for years to come.
