Do you wish to build a farmhouse kitchen in your home? Modern farmhouse kitchens are defined by certain distinct elements, which you can easily ape. However, none of the elements is cast in stone. You can change or mix and match them quickly to achieve the look you want. Below, we look at the various aspects of a farmhouse kitchen in detail.
1. Wood Cabinets

To build a traditional farmhouse kitchen, you must install wood cabinets. Modern materials like laminate will feel entirely out of place. There is no better way to achieve the correct traditional details without wood cabinets. If anything, the chests develop a natural patina or can have one after staining. There is no better way to get a modern farmhouse look. You can paint the kitchen white or with any other color. Don’t forget to install the right accessories, countertops, and hardware.
2. Open Shelves
Farmhouse kitchens rarely have upper cabinets. Instead, open shelves are used to hold utensils and other kitchen appliances. That minimalist look feels bright and light at the same time. Open shelves allow you to display dishware, heirloom, and cookie jars.
3. Neutral Colors

Unlike modern kitchens that feature all kinds of colors, farmhouse kitchens tend to have neutral undertones. Mostly, it will be a variation of black, white, and wood shades. Even though colors such as gray and navy blue may be included, black and white are predominant. Once you paint it appropriately, the kitchen will assume a farmhouse look in no time.
4. Quartz or Concrete Countertops

Farmhouse kitchens are defined by simplicity, which means having granite, marble, or gorgeous countertops. You will rarely find bold, multi-coloured finishes, which do not work well with the simplistic look. You may also try smooth quartz or concrete countertops. The countertop needs to be as dark as possible to create contrast with the white cabinet.
5. Brick, Tile, or Wood Backsplash

Farmhouse kitchens often feature white subway tiles and black grout. The resultant backlash is not only elegant but also classic. The clean, fresh look it provides goes hand in hand with other pure elements of the farmhouse kitchen. You may use exposed brick and wood to create unique backlashes. You don’t have to stick to the traditional look.
6. Farmhouse Sink
A farmhouse sink looks very different from what you know. It has a more substantial basis that combines well with the apron sink to provide a unique farmhouse look. Don’t be worried about the time you will take to get used to the new kitchen sink. Nothing stays new forever.
7. Natural Wood Details
To have a farmhouse kitchen, you need some form of exposed wood. Instead of plan wood, it could be in the decorative accents, an island, or countertop. You may also install floating wood shelves as your storage space. Or, you could have a contrasting countertop on a kitchen island. There is nothing that says “farmhouse” than exposed wood.
As you can see, achieving a farmhouse kitchen is possible so long as you include all the details that define it. Visit our shop for options.
