    Tips To Create Your Perfect Farmhouse Kitchen

    Farmhouse kitchens have become incredibly popular in recent years, thanks to their cozy and charming aesthetic. If you’re thinking of giving your kitchen a farmhouse makeover, here are a few tips to help you get started.

     

    Find Out Why You Want a Farmhouse Kitchen

    First, determine why you want to create your farmhouse kitchen. Is it because of the décor or style? Or is there a certain functionality you are after? A combination of both? Once this is figured out move on to measuring the space where the kitchen will be installed. Get an idea of how big or small it is. If you can, try to include at least one window in your measurement as well as the type of cabinets that are already in place. This will help you with creating furniture that fits into the room perfectly. To do this right, you can use our free 3D kitchen design tool for measuring and planning your dream farmhouse kitchen perfectly!

     

    Organize your space

    The first step is to organize your space. Strip away anything that doesn’t directly relate to cooking or food preparation. Remove all appliances, including ovens, microwaves, dishwashers, and even sinks if possible. Instead use an under-bench sink with ample counter space surface area for preparation work.

     

    Start with a neutral palette

    A farmhouse kitchen should have a warm and inviting feel, so start by choosing a neutral color palette. This will give you the flexibility to add pops of color later on. Farmhouse kitchens typically use neutral colors like white, beige, and gray. Go with Nelson Cabinetry’s timeless white and gray collections to make your kitchen high quality. This helps to create a sense of calm and relaxation, which is perfect for a kitchen space. If you’re not sure which neutrals would look best in your kitchen, do some online browsing for inspiration. 

    Use white for your walls and higher cabinets. White is a tried-and-true color that will set the tone of the kitchen to appear larger, brighter, and give everything that a clean farmhouse feel.

    Use natural materials

    To create that rustic farmhouse look, use natural materials wherever possible. This means you should focus on using reclaimed wood, stone, and metal in your design.

    Wood floors and cabinets, butcher block countertops, and country-style curtains are all great options. Add metal hardware to draw attention to your cabinet fronts or other details in your space. For an instant update on any cabinet, use aluminum tape to cover worn-out pulls or handles with a shiny new look!

     

    Decor with greenery

    Adding a touch of greenery is essential to creating the farmhouse feel. Leafy plants like pothos and philodendron are great choices to go in hanging planters, or directly into your under-sink cabinet for simpler watering. Try putting fresh flowers or herbs in old jars or pitchers.

    Farmhouse kitchens have become increasingly popular in recent years, and it’s easy to see why. They offer a warm and inviting atmosphere that’s perfect for both everyday family meals and serious homesteading. However, before you start knocking down walls or spending a fortune on renovations, it’s important to consider some key factors like how you plan to use the space.
