Farmhouse Kitchens

Farmhouse kitchens are popular whether they are in an old farmhouse, or created with a combination of antique and modern elements that convey a simplified, unpretentious character that speaks to a casual lifestyle.

There are no rules to this style, but we often see elements that give a nod to history like vintage-inspired lighting, brick or rustic metal accents, and bin pulls or cast-iron hardware making their way into farmhouse kitchens.

The recessed panel (Shaker) door style leads the way in farmhouse kitchens, often with glass front upper cabinets, and frequently with a distressed finish. Barnwood accents such as exposed beams or open shelving are also common. Apron front (“farm”) sinks, stone or butcher block countertops, and a mantle-like hood, which might serve as a display area, are common features of farmhouse kitchens.
