Farmhouse Kitchen Designs
A farmhouse kitchen design blends a multitude of styles such as country, cottage, rustic and traditional that take one back to a simpler time. Modeled after early American living, the style reflects the lifestyle of those who lived in rural communities with craftsman finishes and warm and inviting colors. Here are some of the ways you can create a farmhouse kitchen design in your home:
Farmhouse kitchen islands – Known as the workhorse of the kitchen these surfaces are used to cook and prepare food on. In addition, metal, wood or upholstered stools can be pulled up to the island for eat-in dining. Farmhouse islands are often painted in pastels and warm colors to give a real homey touch to the space.
Open shelving and glass door cabinets – Many classic farmhouse kitchens have open wall mounted shelving along with glass door cabinets. One way to incorporate an open shelving style in your home is to remove some of the doors. You can also consider replacing upper cabinets with floating type shelves. These can also be paired with Shaker cabinets which are a popular choice for this style.
Farmhouse kitchen sinks – These sinks are big and can be used for a variety of purposes from scrubbing pots, to cleaning clothing and even washing the baby. Also known as an “Apron front sink” they offer a deep basin that sticks out slightly from the surrounding cabinetry. These sinks have risen in popularity over the years and are now highly sought after in traditional and contemporary kitchen designs alike.
Butcher block countertops – These wood countertops bring a natural feeling to the kitchen and look great. They are a great way to bring some character to your space, are durable and can be used to provide contrast next to stainless steel appliances.
Natural lighting – A light and bright kitchen area can really raise the mood and help one appreciate the rich details of this design. The more natural light you can let in the better you’ll appreciate the bright and cheery environment.
Beadboard walls, cabinets and islands – These striped wood panels definitely fit in to the farmhouse style and provide a clean and uncluttered look to your room. Beadboard can be used on walls, cabinets and islands to give you instant vintage elegance.
