Farmhouse Kitchens

Farmhouse kitchens are a beautiful blend of old and new. They have charm and character, all while incorporating the latest design trends.


Here are a few examples of well thought out farmhouse kitchens to inspire your next project.

I love the use of pale greens or blues for the base cabinets. This subtle pop of colour creates the character a farmhouse kitchen craves. A great choice of colour would be Benjamin Moore's Jack and the Beanstalk 442.

Add some character with the use of wrought iron finishes, like chandeliers or sinks. The richness of the black creates a more rustic feel than the typical stainless steel look.

Lastly to tie your farmhouse kitchen all together use architecturally interesting pieces. For example brackets for shelves or distressed ceiling beams.

Farmhouse kitchens are all about the mix of rustic pieces with new pieces. Never be afraid to try changing the architecture of the space by adding materials like wood or stone to it. A farmhouse kitchen is made for easy living, so why not try it out in your home?
