We took this drab kitchen and turned it into a fab farmhouse kitchen! Even though we live in a little rambler in the middle of a wooded subdivision, we brought the farmhouse right inside and livened the place up a bit. Since my entire theme for this home has always been “farmhouse”, it was natural for us to eventually float over to brighter colors and a more modern farmhouse look. We recently did this when we renovated our sitting room.
The kitchen was a horrible part of the home. It was ugly, dingy, straight out of the 1980s. But we quickly turned it into something that is inspiring and beautiful.
The Farmhouse Kitchen Cabinets and Hardware
We started by ripping out the old and dingy cabinets and replacing them with new white cabinets. We found the hardware online for a fraction of the cost that it would’ve been at our local big chain store. Overall, we saved $161 just finding the hardware for the cabinets online! It was a steal. I love the white cabinets and how much they brighten up the small kitchen. And the cabinet hardware really brings a sense of classic farmhouse charm with a modern twist.
The Farmhouse Kitchen Faucet
The faucet we chose was a no-brainer. It was non-negotiable. I wanted this faucet, and I was going to get it! It is so convenient when fill up pots, a water bath canner, or just cleaning the sink out. It truly brings that touch of farmhouse charm to the kitchen, and it’s efficient too!
The Farmhouse Kitchen Butcher Block Counter Tops
We went back and forth on formica or butcher block counter tops, and eventually decided on butcher block. We love our butcher block counter tops, though it does come with some maintenance, which you can learn all about butcher block here.
Overall, we’re so pleased with our farmhouse kitchen. Watch the video below to see the rest of the kitchen, including the sliding barn door, flooring, and more!
