A Rustic Look With Hardwood

Considered by many to be the ultimate floor choice, hardwood never goes out of style. This classic floor lends natural beauty and warmth to your kitchen; every board brings rich details achieved with nature and craftsmanship. It's not the most comfortable floor to stand on for long periods of time, so dedicated cooks might want to put down mats or area rugs. But hardwood stands up to spills and stains. Hardwood is often installed throughout the house for a seamless look. Though hardwood lasts for years, you can get fresh looks down the road by refinishing, staining, and even painting the kitchen floors.

This fun, transitional kitchen is filled with contemporary elements and rustic details. Two modern pendant lights are accented with brass that draw the eye to the marble-topped kitchen island with built-in range. The cabinets below are outfitted with matching brass hardware and a soft white color palette. The brass works to compliment the nearby brick accent wall and rich hardwood flooring in the space.
