A rustic design style is characterized by simplicity and an old-fashioned aesthetic, often featuring warm wood tones and wrought iron hardware. Rustic cabinets are typically constructed using reclaimed lumber, wood from old barns, cedar, knotty pine, and hickory. The wood used in rustic cabinets typically has distinctive traits like knots, wide grain, and slight imperfections, adding to their rustic appeal. Recessed doors with flat panels and hand carvings are common features of rustic cabinets. While custom orders are common, some manufactured units are also available. Homeowners often enhance the look of their rustic design by concealing appliances behind panels for a cohesive look, and incorporating rustic touches such as wrought iron hardware or burnished copper light fixtures.
