walls, flooring or fireplace adds luscious texture and warmth to any kitchen. Layer in an antique armoire for storage/petite pantry, lamps and mirrors to make the kitchen feel more connected to the house. Wicker and wood.
Italian Rustic Basement Kitchen: this is exactly how country people in their country homes make use of space. Most things are stored or hung from the ceilings/rafters. It's unused space! Very authentic.
