A farmhouse kitchen can be elegant, rustic… or anything in between!

Love the look? Then you’ll enjoy these tips on how to create it in your kitchen.

Now that I’ve been living in my new kitchen for a while, I’ve had time to enjoy it all so much! When I started the design process, I wasn’t sure what kind of style I wanted. I knew I wanted a white kitchen, but let’s face it, thanks to Pinterest, there are just too many great styles to choose from these days.

When I started working with Thomasville Cabinetry (exclusive at The Home Depot), I knew that I liked to mix vintage items with modern decor. As soon as they told me about their new Thomasville Studio 1904 line, I knew it was a perfect fit!

I chose a simple modern cabinet door style that could stand the test of time and by mixing antiques with industrial style lighting, my kitchen slowly morphed into a Modern Farmhouse Style.

I really had no idea how popular this look was until I was in the middle of my planning stage. It had been trending for a while, and didn’t even know it! ha!

10 Must-Haves for a Farmhouse Kitchen!

 1. White Painted Cabinets

White cabinets go a long way with a farmhouse style and the ultimate when it comes to giving a kitchen that farmhouse feel! I’m so happy I got to work with Thomasville Cabinetry! They earned The Women’s Choice Award as America’s most recommended kitchen cabinets. I love that they have so many door styles and organization options.

2. Barn Doors

Nothing says farmhouse quite like a sliding barn door! A barn door pantry door is one of my favorite additions to my new kitchen. For such a simple idea, it makes a big difference.

5. Rustic Table

I chose a sleek simple style for my cabinets, but in keeping my antique table, I was able to pull in a bit more of a rustic farmhouse feel. I’ve always loved this table that I found years ago at a junk shop. Apparently it was nearly 100 years old when I bought it! I added some white paint so it would work in my new kitchen and so glad that I did!

Rustic wood gives texture and warmth to a kitchen. You can easily add this look with furniture, lighting, flooring and decor such as picture frames and old cutting boards. I love my beautiful new lighting, find this on Wayfair–> here.
