White cabinets are farmhouse essentials. They add a fresh and clean touch to the room and also make your kitchen appear more spacious. Your farmhouse cabinetry is only a coat of paint away. Ask your hardware store for the color “Antique White.”

Farmhouse Sink

Farmhouse Sink

The most important element of a farmhouse kitchen is the sink. Farmhouse sinks are deeper and wider than modern sinks and were made for washing big pots and pans. Apron-front sinks are the perfect fit, and I recommend going with porcelain white to keep the look uniform. Though depending on your use of color and accents, options such as rich copper, stainless steel, and fireclay may fit nicely too.

White dishes are like an open canvas for colorful home-cooked meals and vibrant desserts. Switch to white pots and pans and add a few cast-iron accessories to complete the look.

Open shelving can be used to display cutlery and dishes or as an open pantry. Keeping all your ingredients within reach will inspire you to use what you have and get creative in your farmhouse kitchen.

Fresh Flowers

Fresh Flowers

The whites in a farmhouse kitchen only work when they provide a background for splashes of natural color. When you’re not cooking with a rainbow of reds, greens, and purples, keep your kitchen lively with a vase of wildflowers. They also add a pleasant scent that will transport you to nature, no matter where you live.

The classic farmhouse is all about nostalgia and unpainted wooden elements, giving an aged look that we find so calming. An old breadbox and wooden chairs or stools are great additions, but if you don’t want to go that far, just store your cutting boards and wooden spoons in the open.
