Scandinavian Kitchen Creations

How to create a rustic Scandinavian kitchen for your home.

Rustic vs traditional Scandinavian interior design. What really is the difference?

If you love the look of fresh, clean and clutter-free living, then the Scandinavian home trend may be the perfect solution for your home. We normally think of this trend traditionally with white hues, sleek streamlined plastic and laminated wood, but if your tastes veer more toward warm earthy wooden and copper accents, you will be pleased to know there is room for the variation of this distinct look. Nordic kitchen design is full of texture and character.

Crisp white walls and straight forward kitchen design is traditionally used. The use of white has so many advantages when used throughout your kitchen, maximizing natural light, enlarging the space and keeping the atmosphere light and airy. With hints of earthy beige, orange and wood textures, we accent against the crisp whites. The below list offers rustic Scandi inspiration that you can apply to your kitchen…

• Distressed wooden dining table

• Used scaffold plank shelving

• Live edge chopping boards

• Brick walls (painted white or not - it’s the texture that matters)

• Copper or industrial style bar stools

• Distressed metal, rope or rattan lighting

The key to a rustic Scandi style kitchen is to accessorize with a smattering of earthy hues and textures amongst all those beautiful white and blacks.
