10+ Modern Farmhouse Kitchen Products To Buy

If you’re considering a kitchen renovation, one of the most popular styles for the past few years that doesn’t seem to be going anywhere is rustic and farmhouse-inspired.

This style can be traced back to the 1700s when settlers were building actual farm homes in which to live. Today, homes designed in the farmhouse or rustic style are quaint, cozy but utilitarian, and focus on natural elements and organic designs. There’s a sense of groundedness and tradition that comes from a more rustic-styled kitchen, which is why there’s been such a significant resurgence in their popularity. 

Farmhouse styling went out of fashion after the Great Depression when bold colors, synthetic materials, and contemporary fixtures became the fashion of the day. In the last few years, though, the homey coziness of rustic design has once again become a popular style, likely because the advent of the digital age and the Internet is making us crave things that feel “real.” What better way to do that than in our homes? Popular designers such as Chip and Joanna Gaines through their home-renovation show have also helped bring the style back in recent years, as their tastes are characterized by a modern take on rustic charm. 

What Is A Farmhouse Style?

Farmhouse style is the perfect blend of old-fashioned and practical, as it involves using many of the home’s original features (or replications of original features) while still focusing on having just what you need, and no more or less. However, if your home doesn’t consist of any of its original features, it’s still possible to transform it into something that looks homey while still up-to-date and fully functional.

  • Comfortable 
  • “Homey”
  • Utilitarian 
  • Single-family-home styled
  • Rustic
  • Uses natural materials
  • Exposed woods
  • Original home fixtures 

How To Create A Modern Farmhouse Kitchen

If you’re unsure where to start, consider using a mood board or style guide to begin. Piece together images from kitchens you love to ensure that the look will be cohesive. When you’re merging two styles, it can sometimes be easy to incorporate a bit too much of one over another, and the result will be something that lacks flow and cohesiveness. 

Consider also the impact that your redesign will have on the rest of the home. Alternatively, if nothing else in your home is styled in a modernly rustic way, perhaps pull the main color from another room’s palette and use it as the pop of color in your kitchen. This way, you’ll at least allow one or two things to flow or match.

Farmhouse Style Kitchen Faucets

More than anything, your farmhouse kitchen faucet should be utilitarian and either a simple metal or neutral color. Often, you’ll find that people use white or oil-rubbed bronze faucets in farmhouse kitchens, as white is a major staple of the style, next to the original wood.

Farmhouse Style Kitchen Sinks

A typical farmhouse sink is white (also known as an apron sink), will sit below the counter, have a single, large basin perfect for washing both large pots and pans and babies, and an exposed front edge. We should also note that farmhouse sinks come in a variety of materials, with stainless steel, fireclay, and enameled cast iron is the most popular. If you fall in love with a fireclay sink, you’ll need to take some measures to be sure your cabinetry can support its weight, which can go up to about 300 pounds.

Digging out some cookbooks and planning Spring/Summer meals. Once the sun is out and it’s warms up we will be busy with projects and outings. I love this time of year and it helps so much to have the right things prepped and ready to go when we need them. One year I did a menu exchange with a friend, she planned a month of meals and I planned a month and then we switched our lists! It was a fun way to break up the rut of making meals. How many of you meal plan at your house? : : : #whitedecor #interior4inspo #californiadesign #architecture #fixerupper #kitchendesign #kitchendesign #kitchenrenovation #kitchenisland #foodnetwork #foodblogger #food52grams #spring #realestate #rug #sunsetmag #apartmenttherapy #houzz #modernfarmhouse #interiordesign #interiorstyling #homedecor #simpleliving #farmhousekitchen #mybhg #pinkflashesofdelight #styleathome #mydomaine

Farmhouse Style Lighting & Pendants

Lastly, you’ll want to select the perfect lighting fixtures that complement your farmhouse aesthetic. Classic farmhouses didn’t use a lot of modern lighting, which is why selecting your pendants carefully is so important. You can use this as an opportunity to incorporate something more modern or a sleek, rustic design. Either way, a pendant is what you’ll use above a kitchen table or island. It’s different than recess lighting in that it’s much more visible; therefore, the styling is important.

As with everything in home design, it’s about creating the farmhouse kitchen that you most enjoy. Remember that no two homes are meant to look alike, so you’re just trying to piece together inspiration from what you’ve seen other people do and you’ve enjoyed. There’s no wrong way to go as long as it’s a space that makes you feel most at home.
