As the name suggests, rustic decor adds a weathered and classic look to the kitchen. Many homeowners have the urge to admire the past, and honor tradition through elements of design. Countertops like Caesarstone’s 6003 Coastal Grey bridges a gap between the present and the past.

Rustic countertops and other vintage-inspired kitchen essentials help piece together the perfect farmhouse kitchen. Of course, homeowners could add wooden cabinets and even a sink with a wooden aesthetic if they want to experience that vintage era.

Homeowners could also add some rustic-looking accessories to the kitchen to give the space that quintessential classic look. For example, accessories like yellow lighting, 60s kitchen utensil sets, a historic teapot, clay pots with historical imprints, etc., could be added to the farmhouse kitchen.

The rustic farmhouse kitchen often features a wooden countertop. But homeowners that want the best results (both visually and physically) should opt for a high-quality material, like quartz. In that situation, homeowners can go with the simple idea of installing a countertop that is not wood but has wood-like hues and tones, like Caesarstone’s 6338 Woodlands.

When using quartz modern farmhouse countertops, an individual can mix the modern era material with the vintage look of the past with ease.
