Rustic Kitchen Shelves

Rustic kitchen shelves are a perfect way to add visual interest to your kitchen. They tuck neatly into a small space, like a corner or a creative niche, making for an unexpected focal point and handy storage solution.

This rustic style is all about bringing nature back into your home with honest materials, handmade pieces and natural textures. It is timeless yet contemporary, warm and neutral.

White Cabinets

Open shelves are a simple way to display your kitchen accessories. They’re also a great spot to showcase a favorite piece of china or set of copper pots.

If you’re looking to add some rustic elements to your kitchen, consider using white cabinets for the shelves. They’re easy to style and pair well with a variety of color schemes and finishes.

Light neutrals like beige, ivory, cream or cool gray are great choices for these open shelves. They’re perfect for traditional, contemporary and modern kitchens.

Another option is to use wood cabinets. Rustic wood can come in a variety of colors and can be stain or painted for a more natural look.

In this farmhouse kitchen, simple white cabinetry is accented by warm stained wood floors and a gray-painted backsplash. Black pulls on upper cabinets and a distressed-wood range hood continue the rustic theme.

White Marble Countertops

When you’re designing your kitchen, it’s important to think about the aesthetic that you want and make sure to keep all the elements in balance. That means making sure the colors are consistent, the materials are matched, and the overall design isn’t too busy or overwhelming.

One of the best ways to do this is by adding rustic kitchen shelves! This way, you can use the space to display your favorite decor pieces and create a unique look in your kitchen.

Whether you’re looking for a light wood color or a classic cherry tone, there are plenty of options to choose from that will look stunning in your rustic kitchen.

Marble countertops are another great option to consider for your rustic kitchen. They add a touch of elegance to your design, and are also very durable. However, they can be a bit more expensive than other natural stone options so be sure to compare prices before you buy.

White Shiplap

If you’re looking to add a rustic look to your kitchen shelves, white shiplap is a great option. It’s easy to apply and can create a beautiful focal point without overpowering the room.

If your space doesn’t have much wall space, shiplap is also a great way to add dimension without using too many large pieces of furniture. For example, in this modern farmhouse office nook, the shiplap walls make the space feel more spacious.

The wood also provides a natural backdrop for the white furniture and decor, making the space feel light and airy.

This farmhouse breakfast nook has a lot going for it, but we’re especially fond of the wood-framed pallet art that hangs above the seating area. It’s a subtle touch that makes the nook feel cozy, and we love how it’s paired with the shiplap walls.

Brass Hardware

A touch of gold in the form of brass hardware is a surefire way to make any space look more glamorous. It can be applied to anything from cabinet knobs and pulls to lighting fixtures, vases and mugs.

The most popular choice of kitchen hardware is probably brass, which can be found in any finish from brushed to polished. This glitzy material is particularly useful in the kitchen, where it can help to elevate a room with its shiny glow and make any cabinet or sink faucet look more stylish and sophisticated.
