The BEST Rustic Kitchens For Self-Builders

Looking for rustic kitchens?

Wanting to self-build your own DIY rustic kitchen?

We've scoured Pinterest to find what we believe are the best rustic kitchens with the most charm but also that 
you could potentially create yourself.

Particularly in the UK, people believe you have to have a proper fitted kitchen using kitchen carcasses made from chipboard and would never consider building their own kitchen. These photos will hopefully inspire you to imagine your own, 
self-built rustic kitchen.

This pretty little rustic kitchen has very basic cupboard doors with very crude hinges, but they look good. Under the sink is a curtain to hide the contents. This was a well-used method of hiding cupboard contents and is coming back into interiors fashion.

Antique dressers have just been pushed together to create a length of kitchen worktop of varying heights. They have been left in vintage condition, which adds to the charm. New laminate tops can be applied to these wooden dressers to make them more durable.

Such a mismatch of styles but, together, they work. A real hashed up rustic kitchen but full of character too.
