In most homes, the kitchen is the heart and soul of the house. Everyone wants to make their kitchen design more user-friendly, more inviting, and more personal. For many, the farmhouse aesthetic ticks all of those boxes. It is possible to marry the friendly, comforting aspects of the traditional farmhouse kitchen with the modern kitchen elements you need in your house.
Farmhouse kitchen design is light and bright, usually through a combination of windows and light colored walls. Bring this into your kitchen design by sticking to a neutral color pallet. This, of course, applies to the paint or wallpaper on the majority of the walls, but it also applies to the backsplash and cabinets. Opt for white or light grey for your backsplash. For the cabinets, go with light paint or stain. If you want to add some colorful accents, do so with a light hand. The color should be a subtle accent, not a bold statement.
The farmhouse design tends to incorporate a lot of natural materials, including a lot of warmer tonewood. Opt for wood furniture, especially larger pieces like bench seating. If possible, go with wood countertops as well – butcher block provides a simple, clean look countertop that is also super useful. Wood is also a great choice for open shelves or for encasing beams or islands, which contributes to the farmhouse feel.
The way you accessorize your modern farmhouse kitchen should speak to the tradition you’re trying to invoke and your own personal style. Opt for some antique or industrial elements but don’t overwhelm the space. One way to do this is with the lighting fixtures. Another way is to incorporate an antique sink. If you can’t find an antique sink, the under mount style is a common part of the farmhouse design. Finally, finish the space with your own personal design elements, like a chalkboard, a throw rug, or wall art.
