A rustic white kitchen never fails. This is an option that requires very little maintenance is to directly cover all the walls with tiles.

Village kitchens tend to have more rudimentary walls, with exposed bricks or whitewashed walls .

If you do not want to give up the practical tiles, which are much easier to clean, install them in the front of the kitchen choosing a rough design, such as white tiles with dark joints that give an aged look.
