14 Mar Elements of a Modern Farmhouse Kitchen
Modern farmhouse kitchens are popular as they embrace old and new elements for an edgy design style. With a combination of diverse styles, old-age features and modern looks, farmhouse kitchens are generally spacious and comfortable. The modern farmhouse kitchen design integrates the following distinctive features.
- Exposed Elements
Modern farmhouse kitchens will often have reduced costs as you can let the history of your space come through with tough surfaces, brick walls and rustic finishes. Exposed brick, subway tiles or concrete splashbacks are common.
- Mix of Old and New
Embracing the modern farmhouse style is all about finding a balance of modern and traditional elements in your kitchen’s architecture, materials and decor.
- Raw Textures
Modern farmhouse kitchens are designed for practicality and affordability with raw textures giving your kitchen a distinct personality. Go for a mix of hard-wearing concrete, rustic dark timber, stainless steel materials and tough surfaces.
- High Ceilings
High ceilings and exposed beams are often a integral part of the home and create a warm, farmhouse feeling in the kitchen.
- Open Shelving
Raw open shelving in wooden accents creates a traditional look and lets you show off your favourite vintage pieces while making your kitchenware easy to reach.
- Vintage Accents
Vintage steel stools, metal statement pendant lighting, black steel oversized kitchen handles combined with a bold, black or dark grey colour scheme are distinct features of a modern farmhouse kitchen.
- Large Eating Area
Spacious farmhouse kitchens often feature large spaces for dining in, whether that be a large kitchen table or a multifunctional kitchen island, in a dark timber finish of course.
- Classic Flooring
Rustic wood is a common feature of a modern farmhouse kitchen. Timber flooring create a beautiful finish, especially if they are the original floorboards.
