Kitchen Styles / August 15, 2018 / Addison Smith.
Farmhouse-style kitchens recall a time when rural communities and customs were still at the forefront of American living. Spacious, warm and homey, they anchored life amid the land, and today they evoke a bygone period that whispers of a simpler time. Try these eight elements to reinterpret the look for your kitchen.
Classic flooring. Although wood floors in a farmhouse kitchen are always on point, they aren’t your only option — black and white tile and checkered linoleum also feel true to the style. If you do choose wood, you can either leave it natural or paint it, both of which are appropriate.
Paris bistro kitchens. If you long for a sugar-laced café au lait on Rue Monmartre, why not bring a little Parisian style into your house? Intimate kitchen lighting, pretty cookware on display, tile floors and a striped awning ought to do it.
Cottage kitchens. Cozy, happy and unpretentious, a cottage kitchen harks back to simpler times and evokes a sense of easy, carefree living. Beadboard, soft colors, vintage hardware, wood floors and colorful accents and curtains will infuse your kitchen with cottage comfort.
