Kitchen with a View
This modern farmhouse kitchen remodel had several design goals to achieve while keeping function in mind. The original kitchen was dark with many ceiling obstructions, making it feel small and closed-in. The wall behind the stove and soffits were removed to create an open floor plan.
The team used a simple white Shaker cabinetry, white subway tile, and reclaimed shiplap on the island. For optimal light, windows were taken all the way down to the countertops. Tasked with bringing the rustic charm of the older house into the kitchen, the team used modern features, rustic elements, and industrial-inspired accents. Color palette is very important when creating modern farmhouse style, combining white, black, and wood tones.
The team removed the door that once cut off the kitchen from the laundry area and laid down a new rustic bamboo floor that created visual flow between the areas. The windows and doors were trimmed with a large colonial-style trim that gave the expanded eat-in kitchen a consistent look and complemented the large cabinets and island layout.
