Farm house kitchens creating a timeless statement

Although modern contemporary kitchens have taken the industry by storm, nothing quite beats the comfort and luxury of a classic farm house kitchen. There are ways in which you can either lean towards classic farmhouse by using turned legs, rosettes and cornices, or if you would prefer to create a classic farmhouse kitchen with a modern twist, my suggestion would be to keep it simple with clean colours and modern fixtures.

Natural elements paired with luxury painted doors, farm house kitchens really do make a statement. Some steps to take into consideration when planning your farm house kitchen would be as follows: 

Keeping the area light and bright is a key component when planning the kitchen, use of light painted doors with accents of colour and natural wood will create a homely feeling.

Wood counter tops are often met with criticism due to water damage, however with a little bit of care your wood counter tops could last a lifetime, every few years a good sanding and resealing will revitalize the counter tops to new. Natural solid wood counter tops create warmth not only visually, when done at a breakfast nook or booth it is not as cold as a natural stone or engineered stone product.

The freestanding range cooker is a absolute must have, it creates the feeling of a kitchen that loves being cooked in, paired with a pot filler the range cooker makes a statement in a farm house kitchen. A large built in canopy hood is also a great accent that will give a dramatic effect in your kitchen.

The farmhouse kitchens also get allot of flack for being a space filled with clutter, my number one tip when trying to reduce the clutter in this space is that one should only have the items that create clutter that get used on a weekly basis to prevent these items from getting dusty and making the kitchen look untidy or unclean.
