Our 7 Favorite Farmhouse Kitchens
Even if you’ve been living under a rock (or have spent the last year binge-watching the Great British Baking Show), you still probably know that farmhouse-style kitchens are hot, hot, hot right now.
Whether their home is in the actual country or they’re snuggling up in a 500-square-foot apartment in Chicago, more and more people are trying to give their kitchens that charming historic-yet-sleek look. Are you one of those people? Steal some inspiration from these Pinterest-worthy kitchens.
1. A Real Farmhouse
It’s kind of not even fair to compare other kitchens to this one, because it’s part of a real farmhouse from 1729. (It sits on a little parcel of land that’s also home to hens and pigs!) Of course not every part of it is old — the island is from IKEA and the cabinet pulls are from Anthropologie.

2. Small and Sweet
What this 290-square-foot tiny house lacks in space, it makes up for in style. Somehow, the totally functional kitchen manages to have a covetable apron sink, a large-capacity refrigerator, a full-size four-burner range, a warming drawer, and real usable counter space. There’s even a built-in dining nook with a custom leather seat. Plus, it’s downright adorable!

3. A Well-Decorated Rental
This Chicago apartment is proof that you don’t have to give a kitchen an expensive renovation in order to get that popular rustic look. Here, a little bit of paint (Cucumber Crush by Valspar), some curtains in place of cabinet doors, and some well-placed accessories transform a builder-basic rental kitchen.

4. A Mix of Old And New
It’s hard to pick a favorite element in this Pennsylvania kitchen. The 1902 Victorian home has some stellar old bones (like original molding and hardwood floors), while newer accents (a copper apron sink and a paneled wood ceiling, for example) add to the weathered vibe.

5. Full of Shiplap
If you’ve seen even one episode of Fixer Upper, you know that shiplap is key for a farmhouse-style space. It’s often found in old barns and historic Southern homes, and it’s a great way to add character and texture to a room while keeping things relatively neutral. In this Texas home, owners Glenn and Paula paired their shiplap walls with pale green cabinetry, a rustic dining table, and an iron chandelier.

6. A Modern Farmhouse Kitchen
Noticing a trend yet? White is always good for a farmhouse-style kitchen, and so is green. Any shade of green will do! If you’re looking for a bit more of a modern take, make like homeowners Kevin and Lori of Illinois and work in some chic stainless steel accents with your appliances and even a statement-making island.

7. A Reclaimed Space
When Eva (the blogger behind Adventures in Cooking) and her husband were making over the kitchen of their 1930s Portland cottage, they transformed it from a dated mess to a farmhouse dream, complete with an apron sink, a vintage gas range, and reclaimed wood open shelving. Of course, it helps that she has lots of gorgeous cookware and accessories to show off.
