By using reclaimed wood on your countertops, you get a countertop that provides stunning beauty to your kitchen. You also conserve the environment by preventing the wood from going into the waste stream. Rustic and reclaimed wood countertops are available in a variety of colors and styles to suit your specific needs and taste. Reclaimed wood comes from numerous sources including building materials in warehouses, commercial buildings and barns.While thinking of rustic and reclaimed wood countertops, chestnut, antique oak, rustic pine and heart pine come to mind. These woods have a timeless appeal that gives your kitchen a radiant old-world feel. While preparing rustic wood countertops, stain and glaze can be added to emphasize the look of the wood. You can opt for lightly worn edges and corns with dings and dents, heavily worn edges and corns with numerous dings and worm holes, or very heavily and uneven worn edges and corns with clusters of worn holes, terminate tracks and notch marks, numerous drag marks, circular dings and scratches. The level of distress on your rustic countertop will depend on your taste and preference.
The kitchen featured below is one that still maintains its countrified side, yet has a female, sophisticated flair to it, as well. This design can be achieved quite simply by adding some prettier textiles such as fabric-covered chairs, curtains and a pretty area rug. Plus, some of the cabinets are white, new and more modern in design.
