The interior design industry has recently seen a move towards more rustic styling. A step beyond shabby chic trends of previous years, the new rustic trend looks at natural materials with a weathered, vintage look. Such an authentic, aged effect is often hard to effectively replicate in your home so we’ve created three great ways of introducing one of this season’s top trends, stone effect wallpaper into your kitchen to give it that rustic feel that we know you’ll love.
Look 1 – Stone Effect Feature Wall
This look aims to replicate the rustic farm houses of yesteryear by just using stone effect wallpaper on one wall of the kitchen. Giving a true, homely feel, this design is intended to perfectly blend the rustic trend with more contemporary kitchen designs, giving you the best of both worlds. The most suited wallpaper for achieving this effect is a slate effect stone wallpaper. Slate wall effect wallpaper gives an authentic rustic look whilst choosing grey tones makes ts easy to team with bright, bold colours on the other walls.

Look 2 – Stone Effect Splash Backs
If you’re after a more modern way to incorporate stone wallpaper into your kitchen, this look is for you. Place strips of stone effect wallpaper behind key areas of your kitchen like the hob or the sink. Cover with transparent splash backs to protect the wallpaper and voila, you’ll have a modern, fashionable design inspired by the rustic trend. The most suitable stone wallpaper designs for achieving this look are the traditional red brick wallpaper designs. These will add a vibrant warm look through the colour scheme yet give a more natural look.
