22 attractive modern country kitchen design ideas

When we hear the word “rustic,” what comes to our mind are the wooden features in different areas of the interior. There may be brassy features as well. It can be far from sleek and elegant modern style. But did you know that it is actually possible to combine the two? Yes, designers have found a way to combine rustic style with modern design. The result is just beautiful. This is definitely not what you expect because a modern country kitchen actually looks beautiful.

Today, we will show you kitchen interior designs that have a unique twist. It would be rare to see modern country kitchens but they do exist! If you have a desire to add wood to your home, then you will definitely like the kitchens that we will show today. Most of the time, wood is used for cabinets but it will either be painted or other types of finishes will be used for it. But when the wood texture is retained, it will be a completely different story. Aside from wood, the kitchens below also have other rustic features like lighting and even furniture. Let’s scroll down and have a look at the pictures of modern country kitchen designs.
