Wooden kitchens

Natural and eco-friendly materials are now more relevant than ever. It seems we are all a little tired of the typical Art Nouveau furniture made of plastic, glass and metal and are turning our attention back to timeless, classic furniture made of durable wood. Rustic style, with its elegant roughness, has burst into our homes, becoming a sort of response to the surfeit of cold and glossy tech materials. 

In our own homes, we are increasingly giving up the functional minimalist style with its clear geometric shapes and smooth surfaces and going for a more provincial look of sturdy, old wood with its special  incomparable flavour. This is especially true in the kitchen, which can rightly be called the heart of our home, because its where we gather as a family every day to dine, discuss the past and plan for the next day. Today on homify we look at kitchens with a wooden interior; rooms that exude the warmth and comfort of your grandmother's house and bring us back to the sweet memories of carefree childhood.

A kitchen made of natural wood

This house was once part of a dilapidated Soviet farm. Under the new owners, the home was renovated, but they choose to keep the interior in the rustic farm style. The kitchen in this house consists entirely of solid and robust wooden furniture perfect for a provincial feel. 

Incidentally, rustic is often confused with country style. Interiors decorated in a country style often include lots of small decor items such as hand-made tableware, wooden statues and taxidermied animals or small blacksmith souvenirs hung on the walls. A rustic interior, in contrast to a country one, is marked by a maximum simplicity and even a kind of brutality that is inherent in the raw, natural furniture and ornaments.

A dancing kitchen

Looking at this picture, it is impossible not to smile. The furniture seems to be dancing right in front of your eyes, bringing the good vibes to this kitchen. Everyone will be happy to be in this room, even those who tend to avoid the kitchen because of a natural dislike for cooking and washing dishes. The creators of this amazing, complexly engraved furniture, a company called Carved Wood Design,manufacture all their wooden interior design and kitchen decor to order. All their works are handmade.

ARREX LE CUCINE

Live simply and more elegantly is the motto of the Italian company Arrex le Cucine, which has created this unusual kitchen cabinet. Italian design is famous for bringing things back to basics without losing a sense of modernity, a perfect combination of minimalism and rustic style. This kitchen cabinet is made of solid oak, a portion of which was painted in white. It houses a number of shelves, which store dishes for the whole family, and a few high-tech devices, without which it is impossible to imagine a modern kitchen.

With such an unusual and effective design solution, it is possible to free the kitchen of bulky household appliances and put in a huge dining table, perfect for accommodating large, friendly family gatherings.

This table is one of the best examples of country style furniture. For all its rustic charm, it is extremely practical and is ideal for small kitchens, where so often there is not enough space for utensils and decorative items. This table and its an unusually high stools provide both storage and seating, making them a practical choice.

White wood

Grace:   by Mowlem&Co

If white is your favorite color, you will feel very comfortable in this kitchen. You must be a very tidy cook since white, as is well known, does not tolerate spots and specks. The furniture in this kitchen is also made of wood, which was subsequently painted in dazzling white. The simple and harmonious lines of the furniture combine well with a crystal chandelier, something we usually see in  luxury baroque interiors. Here, however, the use of white gives the wooden furniture an aristocratic elegance and sophistication.

Bamboo tableware

Bamboo is one of the most sustainable natural materials. So if you are the proud owner of a wooden kitchen, maybe you should also consider wooden bowls. Cookware made of rough wood can look too abrubt and appear too rough even for the most committed fans of country style. Therefore we recommend the stylish, contemporary and incredibly practical utensils made of bamboo.

The design idea for wooden kitchen decor seen in this image is perfect for those who always try to follow the fashion, but who are not huge fans of wooden furniture. If you are a thoroughly modern man who lives in a luxurious loft in the heart of the city that never sleeps, it is unlikely you tend to yearn for the comfort of your grandmother’s kitchen. However, if you want to follow the latest trends in interior design, why not just take one key element of rustic style and turn it into a fully functional kitchen table?
