A contemporary farmhouse kitchen conveys a sense of warmth and comfort while also remaining practical – the essence of what we need in our homes in 2021. Whether you’re simply renovating or designing your dream kitchen from the ground up, here are some tips on how to transform your space into the perfect farmhouse kitchen.

Keep the Color Palette Simple

While there are no set colors for the modern farmhouse style, it is common practice to keep your palette simple with white, black and neutral tones. Accent colors such as navy blue and forest green are also popular if you would like to break away from the gray scale look while maintaining a calm color palette. For instance, this gorgeous kitchen features white and black quartz countertops, grey shaker cabinet island and reclaimed wood flooring.

Mix Shaker Cabinets and Open Shelving

When it comes to cabinets and shelves, it is best to keep them traditional. Opt for the standard shaker cabinets and use open shelving to accentuate the “perfectly imperfect” look and display beautiful cookware or antiques. The ability to see through your storage is practical and makes everything is easy to find. 

Choose Countertops with Minimal Movement

Countertops can have the most impact on your kitchen design. To match the clean, contemporary aesthetic of a modern farmhouse kitchen, choose countertop materials with minimal movement or pattern. This includes white marble or grey, white or black quartz. After designing numerous kitchens, we have a few favorite materials that provide the perfect look to this style.

Mix Metals

When it comes to the modern farmhouse style, a blend of metal fixtures and accents is popular and lends to the reclaimed look. For lighting, use pendant fixtures with an antique or industrial flair. As far as appliances, don’t be afraid to incorporate brushed nickel, copper or stainless steel.
