Inside every person’s imagination is their ideal kitchen. It may or may not say something about who you are as a person, but it does say a lot about your personal tastes. If you designed your kitchen to be ultra-modern, chances are the rest of your home is decorated in the same fashion. Whether you actually live on a farm or in the middle of the city, the farmhouse look is attractive, simple, cozy, and full of class. If that’s what you wished your kitchen looked like, here are must-haves for your upcoming renovation.
White Beadboard or Wainscoting
The minute you walk into a room with wainscoting on the walls you’re instantly transported to a different time and place. White wainscoting is old-fashioned without being outdated, and it adds a friendly charm to your décor. Keep your walls white to match the beadboard or choose a light colour to complement the farmhouse aesthetic, like lemon yellow. Beadboard installation doesn’t take as long as you might think.
Raw-Edge or Butcherblock Countertops
A real farmhouse necessitates a lot of wood: fireplaces, fences, outbuildings, and gardens all require access to lumber. So, it’s no surprise that a farmhouse is adorned with plenty of wooden elements, such as a wooden countertop. These days, you’ll find plenty of anti-microbial wooden countertops that suit your modern needs and country aesthetic.
White and Simple Décor
Old-fashioned farmhouses were designed and decorated with intentional minimalism. There really is no time for frivolity when you work from sunrise to sunset every day of the year. That’s why clean and simple were the only aesthetic choices. White paint may have been chosen for its availability or—before electricity—its ability to reflect light. Modern farmhouse kitchens carry on this tradition with simple and minimalist designs and colours.
Deep Kitchen Sink
Farmhouse sinks are working sinks. Deep, wide, and durable, they give you plenty of room to prepare great big meals for your friends and family. If you’re going for a modern farmhouse look, a stainless steel apron-front sink would look perfect with a chef style faucet. White apron-front kitchen sinks, however, are the classic farmhouse style.
Showing off your finest crockery with open shelves and glass cabinetry is quintessential farmhouse esthetic. Display china cups, flower vases, crystal glasses, and everything show-worthy with a quaint side table or built-in shelves. Leaving your cabinets open gives your kitchen an added element of warmth and brightness.
