Get the look: Farmhouse kitchen

farmhouse kitchens

When it comes to kitchen design, there’s one trend that never seems to go out of fashion – the farmhouse kitchen. The classic design has made this style of kitchen popular for years, and while it may not be everyone’s cup of tea, it remains a strong choice for anyone hoping to create a warm, homely, family environment.

So how do you create the look? Well that’s easy with our top tips…

Colour

An off-white colour palette is key for achieving the country style farmhouse look. But don’t be afraid to play with pastels too. A duck egg blue or grey colour, for example, makes a great accent colour in the kitchen and can be used on a feature wall or throughout your appliances or décor.

Materials

Consider opting for a wooden floor or adding terracotta titles to the floor for a natural look. This also helps to add warmth to the neutral colour scheme.

When it comes to countertops, wood works really well to help to create that farmhouse look. As with worktops, chairs and tables are often constructed from hardwood, with maple, oak and pine being popular choices. Pine is an especially good choice as it gives that down-home appeal of a farmhouse kitchen. Whether you decide to keep the wood natural, or get creative with a distressed, shabby chic look, the choice is yours.

Focal points

Sinks play a key role in the farmhouse kitchen design. The classic farmhouse sink features a deep, wide basin made from porcelain or stainless steel and offers a great combination of style and functionality. They make a great focal point in a farmhouse kitchen design.

You can also add a touch of the modern with a kitchen island in all the classic farmhouse style materials. The kitchen island will help to make your kitchen work harder by tucking all those everyday items into built in drawers and cabinets.

Final touches

Think of homemade happiness when adding the final touches to your kitchen. Fresh flowers in vases, glass, stone or ceramic cake stands, wire egg baskets and slate place settings all work well. Fabrics such as hessian and linen are great too, and styles like plaid and gingham, so consider this when choosing table runners, curtains or blinds and tea towels.

Also consider making space for some open shelving. You don’t have to have much of it. All you need to do it dedicate a small area of the kitchen for open shelving to store crockery, platters, pitchers and plates you’d like to keep on show.

Unique feature ideas

Consider adding farmhouse features, like wooden beams to the ceiling. In one of our recent projects, designer Paul Harrington, and his team built a wall with an old finish and a large oak beam to sit above the mantle. This helped to give a classic, rustic touch to a fairly contemporary kitchen. You can see the full design in our True English Charm case study.

Warm wood kitchens are instantly cozy, approachable and inviting.
There’s no denying that white kitchens are timeless — they look clean, bright and ensure your space will feel modern for years. Wood kitchens, on the other hand, are more likely to exude warmth and can be more customizable to fit various lifestyles.
