Traditional Farmhouse Kitchen Makeover

Modern amenities mingle with classic farmhouse character in this updated kitchen. See how the homeowners created a functional space while staying true to their home's history.


    Everything in this slideshow

    • Classic & Contemporary

      A careful mix of textures, finishes, and colors allowed these homeowners to find a stunning yet comfortable balance for their classic farmhouse kitchen. Although the original space looked dark and dreary, the footprint blended well with the homeowners’ vision for the kitchen. In the end, they were able to create a clean-lined space featuring modern amenities that still pays homage to the home’s rich history.

    • Delicate Balance

      A creamy-white finish on cabinets, molding, and wainscoting allows other features throughout the kitchen to shine. Textured white subway tiles on the walls add visual interest to the neutral space without taking attention away from the classic lines of the cabinetry. Glass-front upper cabinets help to balance the dark countertops, flooring, and island finish to keep the small space looking light and airy.

    • Traditional Style, Modern Convenience

      With windows on three sides, the kitchen is washed in natural light and views of the outside. The homeowners opted to leave the sink in its original light-filled corner to add a splash of asymmetrical quirkiness to the traditional kitchen layout. The bridge-style faucet is traditional in style, but its chrome finish allows it to blend seamlessly with stainless-steel appliances.

    • A Range of Possibilities

      With double ovens and a convenient warming shelf, the new professional-grade range is one of the homeowners’ favorite additions. Its location -- just a turn from the island -- allows easy conversation between the cook and guests.

    • Rough Around the Edges

      Rustic elements mingle with modern ones, creating a space that’s both farmhouse-friendly and perfect for entertaining. The stainless-steel refrigerator is paired with a down-to-earth pantry cabinet with farmhouse-appropriate chicken wire inserts. Thick granite flooring, a replacement to outdated slate tiles, adds a touch of natural roughness underfoot and nods to the home’s history.

    • Farmhouse Flair

      Next to the sleek stainless-steel refrigerator the pantry is outfitted with chicken wire inserts rather than ordinary glass panels, a nod to the home’s rich farmhouse character. Crystal door pulls add a touch of glamour and vintage character to the clean-lined cabinet.

    • Island Style

      Furniture-like feet and open shelving help the island feel like a stand-alone piece of furniture, echoing kitchens of years gone by. Here, on the range side of the island, potatoes and onions are kept in open baskets for easy access. Closed cabinets and drawers provide storage for everything from silverware to small appliances.

    • Sunny Breakfast Nook

      A large bay window just outside the kitchen's main work space offers the perfect spot for a cozy breakfast nook. A maple-top table with black legs echoes the color scheme of the nearby island. Chairs upholstered in linen provide a comfy perch to enjoy a quiet breakfast or the morning newspaper
