Whether you have a country kitchen or a more modern one, rustic style dining areas are beautiful and cozy places to gather for food and companionship.
One of the appealing elements of rustic style is that it can go in so many directions. There is always some wood but it can also have industrial metal, modern lines or rugged edges. Gather some mismatched chairs around a well-worn table and you’re on your way.
Benches are as at home in rustic dining rooms as chairs and can easily seat extra people. Chairs can be metal or wood, neutral or brightly-colored. Mix and match benches and chairs as well as different chairs or just choose one. It all works for the rustic style.
The final touch to a rustic dining area is the lighting. One large pendant lamp is lovely in a dining room while a pair of smaller fixtures goes with the flow of an open concept room.
If you want to get the look, check out these rustic dining tables that have plenty of history without passed down by the generations.
While a checked table cloth can evoke that country feeling, all of these tables are beautiful on their own. Of course, protect them during meals with place mats.
