RUSTIC AMERICANA

Rustic Americana stretches from the sun-drenched desert of the Southwest, to the lodges of the Adirondacks in New York. These styles are grounded in the philosophy of hand craftsmanship, which often include sun-baked desert colors, soft edges on heavily textured finishes and geometric patterns.

To have a rustic kitchen cabinet detail, Walnut, Pine or Oak material with doors that have turned post, or stile-and-rail doors with curved or square top can be used. Another option will be plank door styles, or square raised or recessed panel. As long as the style is simple, Cherry cabinet could be used. Cabinet finishes can be whitewash, pickled, natural or light tones. Hand-carved details in simple naturalistic motifs accentuate this space.

The hardware use on the cabinet can be from rustic metals, wood, wrought iron and pewter, which are all appropriate.

Countertops need to be natural and heavy in appearance and texture, and matte in finish. Wood, slate, soapstone and ceramic tile are appropriate.

The Floors: Generally random patterned flagstone, slate or wide random plank distressed wood floor.

The Walls: All surfaces are simple in finish; oftentimes having almost a sense of a Colonial whitewash finish.

The Ceilings: white or soft neutral colors with dark, rough heavy beams.
