This Rustic Kitchen is a Must-See

This rustic kitchen mixes it up with two sinks, a generously sized kitchen island, and a variety of natural and reclaimed wood.

Everyone knows a timber home’s kitchen is where the action is. It’s where the meals are more than just food; they’re an expression of love. It’s where kids do their homework and grandkids help bake cookies. It’s where bills are paid and plans are made. It’s the essence of home. But what makes for a well-designed kitchen?

Here's why this rustic kitchen caught our eye:

  • A bank of glazed-white cabinetry brightens the kitchen and provides a soft contrast against the abundance of natural wood in the room. Divided-light glass fronts on the uppers add depth.

  • The kitchen’s traditional L-shaped floor plan is enhanced by an enormous and very functional island.

  • Two sinks – one for dishes (back wall) and one for food prep (island) makes for a more efficient work zone.

  • The soaring ceiling is visually lowered (and infused with character) thanks to the hand-sanded Douglas fir beams.

  • The room is awash in light, thanks to an abundance of windows, general illumination from the can lights in the ceiling, task lighting beneath the cabinetry and decorative fixtures above the island and the table.
