To furnish the kitchen there is an element that fits very well. We are talking about the island. Most often it is central, because it makes the environment very practical and functional. If the space available allows it, do not hesitate to install such an item. It can be used as an additional work surface, or the stove and sink could be placed.

The size of the room does not matter, because the wooden ceilings can be adapted to any need. To best match the rustic style of furniture, it is advisable to leave the wood in its raw state, except for some treatment necessary to guarantee a longer life. With wooden ceilings you can get aesthetically perfect results for any existing furniture context.


One of the main reasons why you have to choose wood to cover the ceiling is because the latter is perfect as insulation. Thermal insulation is very important for energy saving. Moreover, it creates the typical atmosphere for the rustic style.


Wood is a natural material, able to fit perfectly into any home. In case you don’t want to leave it in its raw state, our advice is to paint it and lacquer it. For more modern reinterpretations, but always remaining on the rustic, the lacquered surface is the one that’s right for you.


It must not be forgotten that the color of the wood must also be chosen according to the furnishings, if this is already present. In the proposal that you can see below, we show you an open-space decor. In the space there is the living area, composed of the living room and the dining room.
