For anyone who spends any time on home decorating blogs, Pinterest, or hey, the real world, you know that farmhouse kitchen ideas are hot. Did they ever stop being “hot”? Anyone who tells you that “farmhouse” is over does not know what they are talking about. It’s classic, and will never not be hot. I think every decade has had their own version of the farmhouse kitchen. Warm, friendly, nostalgic spaces, they are perfect spots for long conversations, good red wine, and Saturday morning waffle sessions. (Do you guys notice I mention good red wine on this blog, a lot? ;))
Today we freshen up farmhouse kitchen with some modern touches, minimal decor and simple color schemes. But one thing remains the same… we drool over these gorgeous spaces. Really, truly, drool. Fortunately for you, loyal readers, we know a bunch of highly talented bloggers who have just such kitchens, and have opened up their homes to share with the rest of us. So on this “episode” of drool worthy decor, we bring you farmhouse kitchen ideas! (We even have some tight budget ideas for you too!)
Farmhouse Kitchen Ideas
Modern Farmhouse Kitchens
Here are some awesome bloggers sharing their modern farmhouse kitchen ideas with their room reveals. So many great ideas you can glean for your own kitchen update!
‘Root + Revel‘ has farmhouse kitchens down. Lots of white and fresh design, but they warm it up and make it homey with books, a glam faucet and some pretty accessories… All ideas anyone can borrow.
This rustic modern farmhouse kitchen is luxe, but also packed with ideas you can use too! From ‘Maison de Pax‘, check out the basics of farmhouse design. White with wood, a large kitchen island, and a cheery space everyone wants to be in. Choosing lighting fixtures and hardware wisely can change the feel of a kitchen too. Replace your fixtures with gold and matte black for an instantly expensive feel.
More modern farmhouse kitchen ideas heading your way from ‘A Nod to Navy‘. White cabinets, beadboard walls and open shelving make this minimal but charming kitchen stand out. Love the pop of color with the aqua bar stools.
‘What Molly Made‘ made something pretty amazing… a complete primer on farmhouse kitchen design, along with amazing ideas from her own kitchen reveal! We love how she added some interest and pattern by using dark grout on her backslash. If you feel like an all white kitchen is too cold, then considered this little trick. And she has tips on how to achieve the style on your own.
The farmhouse kitchen ideas on ‘The Grit & Polish‘ are the kind everyone needs to see… a before and after that is life changing. Their “before” kitchen was dark and oppressive, and definitely outdated. They used lots of white and pops of gold to bring out the best in this kitchen space. Seriously. Go check out their before photos. Look anything like yours? Then get to making yours look more like their afters!

One last note… she not only used chalk paint on her end wall, but on the backs of the shelving in the cabinets too!
