Style Inspiration for Farmhouse Kitchen Cabinets
Cabinets are the kitchen’s main focal point, so it makes sense that they are the perfect place to start when designing your farmhouse kitchen. Here are some styles to consider for your next remodel:
Classic, Bright White Cabinets
Bright white cabinets are a great way to get the light and airy feel reminiscent of a morning in the countryside. They are also highly versatile and can be paired with black or oiled brass hardware for a rustic contrast.
White farmhouse kitchen cabinets can also be paired with a wood island or wood accents. A concrete or butcher block countertop can add a ruggedness to clean white cabinets. Exposed brick is also a great way to add warmth and country inspiration to white kitchen cabinets. Even if you are redesigning a smaller kitchen, white cabinets with farmhouse-inspired hardware can quickly transform your space into an airy, open space.
If you want to incorporate farmhouse elements into your kitchen while still maintaining a modern design, consider mixing modern elements like marble or quartz countertops with white cabinets and dark hardware for a contemporary take on the popular farmhouse style.
Dark Cabinets with Bright Accents
If bright white cabinets aren’t your taste, dark cabinets with a bright white accent, such as a subway tile backsplash, can give you the farmhouse look you desire. For even more contrast, consider extending the tile to cover your entire wall, or opt for light-colored countertops.
Farmhouse Kitchen Cabinets with Open Shelving
For even more of an airy feel, you may even consider farmhouse kitchen cabinets with open shelving. Open shelving is often more accessible than door-front cabinetry, which is a great feature for busy kitchens. These shelves also allow you to use the open storage to contribute to your kitchen’s design with farmhouse-inspired elements.
White or dark wood shelving with black or oiled brass brackets will give your open shelving a farmhouse look. Shelving also allows you to display vintage or rustic dishware, art, trinkets, canisters, and other stylish food storage, for a homey, country look.
Accent your farmhouse kitchen cabinets with rustic, country decor and accessories such as rooster motifs, signs made from repurposed wooden pallets, and dark metal light fixtures.
