Kitchens with Modern Farmhouse Appeal

So you are a fan of farmhouse style? But maybe you are not ready to wholeheartedly embrace the pictures of cows, pigs, chickens and the red/white checker pattern that historically has come with it. The kitchen is the perfect place for gathering among an inviting, country but also current vibe. Let us quickly review some design elements inherent to farmhouse kitchens:

  • Architecture: Open shelving (to display your mason jars, obvi), rustic wood ceiling beams (reclaimed wood anywhere really) and sliding barn doors thrive (extra points for the signature barn “X”). Consider large oven hoods to emphasize good ole’ homestyle cooking. 
  • Furnishings: Predominantly, furnishings tend to be straightforward designs of wood but brown leather and wicker are also welcome to this party. Furnishings of fabric tend to be skirted. Consider sheer curtains of breezy white from floor to ceiling or a short curtain panel over your kitchen sink window in a nice, neutral tone. 
  • Accents: No farmhouse kitchen would be complete without the signature farmhouse sink. Incorporate other country-inspired touches such as lantern lighting, copper pots and pans (hang them above the island for extra points) and woven baskets for additional storage. Consider subway tile for a fresh, modern take. Exposed brick and stone can work too but make sure to use these in moderation. For instance, create one wall of exposed brick or use rough stone as your oven backsplash.
