If you’re thinking about renovating your kitchen to give it the look of a modern farmhouse, consider incorporating some of these elements which are characteristic of farmhouse style.
Farmhouse kitchens tend to be spare in design and are minimalistic when it comes to upper cabinetry. Consider limiting your amount of upper cabinets and installing open shelves to keep things light and airy, and to allow for the storage and display of decorative dishware, accent pieces, and other personal items.
Quartz or Concrete Counters
Because farmhouse style is simple in nature countertops covered with bold, heavily-patterned stone are somewhat uncharacteristic. Consider less busy surfaces, like a lightly veined quartz or even concrete.
A Farmhouse Sink
You really can’t have a modern farmhouse kitchen without a farmhouse sink, which is basically a large basin with an apron front.
White Tile or Brick Backsplashes
In many kitchens white subway tile with black grout is a classic and popular look. That’s even more so with modern farmhouse kitchens, since white tile is clean and simple and can easily complement other elements. Black grout between tiles will help keep visible dirt to a minimum, and won’t look dingy with time.
Exposed whitewashed brick is another backsplash option, however if you ever decide to put your home on the market it’s a pretty specific look that may not appeal to a majority of homebuyers.
Not only is black grout great for hiding dirt but it goes well with dark hardware, which is characteristic of farmhouse kitchens. For instance, black grout can complement fixtures and cabinet knobs and pulls that have a black matte finish. If you want to go for a warmer look consider hardware in a copper or bronze finish, each of which is also typical of farmhouse kitchens.
Natural Wood Accents
Exposed wood accents are an essential component of farmhouse kitchen style, whether they be wood floating shelves, a butcher block island, or decorative wood accents.
