The farmhouse look for kitchens has been a mainstay in homes for decades, whether you live in the country or you have transformed your city dwelling into a country style oasis. We have put together a gallery of “must-haves” for creating a comfortable, cozy farmhouse kitchen that will be the favorite gathering place for friends and family alike. According to Better Homes and Gardens, “Country kitchens mix finishes and textures to create a casual, welcoming space.”
Let’s take a look at some of the main components of a country style kitchen that you can incorporate into your home to create a comfortable and welcoming room.
The traditional farmhouse sink is generally a lot deeper than modern stainless steel under mount or top-mount sinks. Its design enables the user to stand directly in front of the basin, with no cabinets or countertop in between.
Hardwood flooring adds a warmth and style that is unmatched. Solid wood floors have a thicker wear surface and can be sanded and finished more times than an engineered wood floor, but either one will add a country appeal.
While farm tables have become popular in the kitchen, don’t overlook other working-style tables. This traditional style is usually wooden and rectangular shaped, seating up to eight people. Traditionally, they were designed to accommodate large farm families – now, they’re just great for entertaining.
Nothing says farmhouse kitchen like a decorative and practical hanging pot rack. Add additional storage solutions or use as a decorative element in the kitchen.
One of the most important elements and the final of our five components is the stove and cooktop. Adding a vintage style stove can be a focal point in the kitchen. Even if you opt for a more traditional style range, the more rustic the look the better.
