I recently met with a new client that needs my help designing a farmhouse style kitchen. So the hunt began for the most captivating farmhouse designs I could find to build my concept off of. The thing about farmhouse kitchens is that they can vary in intensity. They range from contemporary kitchens with simple farmhouse details like let’s say the sink or the use of exposed wood to full on country kitchens where we find exposed hinges, cup pulls, coloured cabinets, wood panelled ceilings, rustic light fixtures. It’s really all about finding the right blend and suits your personal aesthetic. One thing they all tend to have in common is that they are almost always light in colour (if not white) and they can all rock a simple subway tile backsplash. What’s not to love about that combo?Here are some of my favourites.
