Think of the word "rustic" and it' s hard not to envision a gorgeous woodland with sprawling trees and vibrant nature. The same goes for a rustic kitchen island – while the design is often simplistic, the end result is a beautiful and functional piece.
Bar stools come in all shapes, sizes and colors. Metal, wooden and fabric-covered stools are available, in addition to backless stools and ones that have arm rests. If your stools are covered with a material, then choose a fabric in a spill-friendly color or one that will easily resist a stain.
Paint can work wonders on your walls, but painting kitchen islands is a great way to give furniture and other areas of your home a facelift too.
Other rustic kitchen island designs include wood with an antique or weathered look that adds a farm-to-table feel to the room. Freestanding kitchen islands with seating can be made from simple dark wood materials with stools placed on either side for family-style eating; this style works especially well in a rustic kitchen design.
