The Modern Farmhouse Kitchen

Posted by Cassie Venable on

Today let’s talk about one of the top spaces we see our customers using our reclaimed wood planks- the kitchen. Modern farmhouse kitchens boast clean lines and warm textures but still have a rustic feel that makes it look like you probably have chickens out back.

How can you tell that a kitchen meets the modern farmhouse standard? There a few elements that seem to give a kitchen the stamp of approval. Warm woods, a farmhouse sink, modern lighting and a pretty faucet all work together to bring to right balance of farmhouse charm and a crisp modern space that everyone can enjoy. Here are a few of my recent favorites I’ve been inspired by.

Can we talk about that beautiful wood vent hood for a minute? I love seeing this style element popping up in beautifully designed kitchens recently. It adds so much warmth to this space and really pops next to the grey cabinets.

Is it really a farmhouse kitchen without a farmhouse sink? I love how the homeowners paired that crisp white farmhouse sink with a pretty brass faucet and black cabinets for a modern vibe in this kitchen.

This modern industrial light fixture, set against that white wood plank wall, is perfectly modern farmhouse. They did a great job tying it into the space by adding other dark elements like the table and pillows.

This Jenny Komenda kitchen has it all. The beautiful wood shelving, black light fixtures, the white shiplap walls and ceilings, brass faucet, along with that gorgeous Turkish rug tie this kitchen together perfectly.  I feel like I could cook anything in this space - as long as I don't have to do the dishes.

I love the wood countertops paired with the black cabinets in the Blair Harris designed kitchen.

Here’s another favorite done by one of our very own customers. I love how she added the reclaimed wood plank wall to crank up the rustic feel in her shared kitchen and dining space. It really makes the crisp white island stand out against the wood background.

One product that is perfectly modern farmhouse is our new 5” wide wood planks. Have you seen these pretty things? These are perfect for adding clean lines and warm wood to your space in just a few hours.

Curious how our customers pull off a transformation so quickly? Our peel and stick backing makes install a cinch! No power tools necessary, although I highly recommend a glass of iced tea and a stellar playlist.

If you’ve got a modern farmhouse kitchen, I want to see it! You can find us over on instagram @plankandmill or follow our Pinterest boards for more design inspiration.

Happy planking!
