Keep reading to find out!
The essence of the farmhouse kitchen
First, let’s focus on what a farmhouse kitchen really is: homey and functional. This style is a throwback to the functionality and spaciousness of the American farmhouse. So, the kitchen in this particular style embraces space, openness, and functionality. The typical cook in a farmhouse kitchen loves to gather with loved ones and cook for all types of occasions: family dinners, holidays, and entertaining. Now, don’t think you must be an all-star chef to deserve this style kitchen—you just need to love gatherings in the heart of your home!
The top 4 elements of your future farmhouse kitchen
There are many ways we can create a farmhouse kitchen you will be proud of, but here are the top 4 ways to accomplish this remodel goal:
- White cabinets. This is the ultimate signifier of a true farmhouse kitchen! Really, almost any style works, as long as it is white (or cream). What do you fancy: Shaker cabinets? Beadboard cabinets? Inlet cabinets? It’s up to you.
- Farmhouse sink. You probably saw this suggestion coming. They are so, so beautiful and exceptionally functional. Typically, the farmhouse sink is ceramic, large, and open/undivided. These were perfect (back in the day) when kitchens were widely used for canning, cooking, and bathing babies!
- Wood or Silestone countertops. These two surfaces are indicative of this popular style. Wood is classic and looks great, even after taking a bit of beating (it only adds to the character!). Silestone is a great option because nothing bothers is; it is resistant to stains and heat (from hot pans)!
- Mason jars. That’s right, we said it: embrace the mason jars. This, you can do without the assistance of your KCB Opt for different sizes and use them for commonly-used ingredients: flour, sugar, lentils, chicken bouillon cubes, tea bags, trail mix etc.!
We hope these ideas have your creative wheels turning! The kind and professional staff here at Kitchen Cabinets & Beyond would be honored to assist you with your kitchen remodel. Stop on by!
