When you think of a farmhouse kitchen, the image that appears in your mind can differ dramatically from someone else’s idea. This is because the farmhouse style has evolved over the years, and it now encompasses a variety of design choices and trends. You can have a classic, country look, a shabby chic space, or a more modern farmhouse design in your kitchen.
It’s all about finding what you love. Some people adore going overly rustic with their farmhouse flair, while others prefer a more subtle approach. Whether you want a contemporary cottage or a more retro vibe in your kitchen, you can put together a space that reflects your own personal sense of farmhouse style.
We’ve looked at tons of farmhouse kitchens, varying in styles and aesthetics, so you can get inspired. Take a look at these 44 fantastic ideas to find the farmhouse kitchen that speaks to you.
1. Industrial Farmhouse
The black cabinetry, light fixtures, and appliances in this farmhouse-inspired kitchen from Cutler Kitchen & Bath lend a more industrial vibe to the space.
The black goes very well with the darker wood stain on the island and range hood trim. Plus, the black detail in the tile backsplash helps bring everything together.
2. Gray Farmhouse Kitchen
This lovely kitchen from Homedesign_housinteriors makes you want to pull up a chair and stay for a while.
The soft grays on the island and cabinets go well with the various mixed elements throughout the room. These include the exposed brick wall, copper range hood, and wooden furniture and details.
3. Real Rustic
If you want to go all-the-way rustic with your farmhouse kitchen, get some inspiration from this home-away-from-home rental from Unique Homestays.
Every inch stirs up feelings of a simpler time, from the pendant lights made from milking pails to the weathered cabinets, wood and wire shelving, and corrugated metal walls.
4. White with Wood
This farmhouse kitchen from One Kindesign puts a clean, modern spin on the style, blending natural wood elements with crisp white finishes.
The floating shelves tie in nicely to the X-legs of the kitchen island and exposed beams. Plus, the all-white counters, cabinets, and glossy backsplash keep things bright.
5. Try Dark Grout
There’s something about using dark grout against a light-colored tile that evokes a sense of cottage charm.
In this all-white kitchen from What Molly Made, the white tile pops against black grout, creating a major contrast that works well. The black faucet is also a nice touch, playing off of the dark lines in the backsplash.
6. Painted Ceiling
This shabby chic, country cottage from Celine Perreault shows a lot of love through its thoughtful touches. The antique weathered dresser-turned-island is gorgeous, and the painted ceiling is incredible.
Painting the wooden ceiling a dark gray cozies up the space, and it shows off the beautiful white ceiling medallions.
7. Strong Black Accents
To achieve the farmhouse style without going too country, select more modern finishes to complete the look. In this kitchen from Magnolia, bold black accents on the hardware, range hood, and countertops provide a more industrial edge.
It also appears in small details like the canister lids, bar stools, and mirrored window behind the sink.
8. Rustic Glam
Want to add a little glam to your farmhouse kitchen? Then consider mixing in some metallics to create a rustic, yet elevated, design, like in this kitchen from One Kindesign.
The oil-rubbed bronze pendants and matching sconces above the sink pick up on the metallic hardware and add just the right touch.
9. Charming Country Cottage
This charming kitchen from White’s Mercantile Room & Board encompasses everything you would expect in a quaint country cottage.
The painted wood floors, vaulted ceilings, and rustic touches add a sense of warmth. Plus, the large windows let in tons of natural light, making the whole space cheery and bright.
10. Vintage Farmhouse
Add some vintage charm to your kitchen with some ideas from this space from The Country Farm Home. If you want a classic farmhouse look, butcher block counters atop white cabinets make a great combo.
Hanging cast iron pans along the wall above the stove not only adds a fun look, but it’s practical too.
11. Mid-Century Vibes
This kitchen takes the farmhouse idea and gives it a mid-century modern twist, using metallic accents and stunning, large globe pendants. It also does a great job taking advantage of the natural light.
The whole look from The Oertel Group is fresh and contemporary, with just enough influence to inspire mid-century vibes.
12. French Country Farmhouse
This quaint kitchen from Amy Wagner is a French-country farmhouse at its best. The stone tile, wooden island, milk crates, and rustic beams and window trim all come together in perfect harmony.
Plus, thoughtful touches like the old bottle for a vase, milk jugs, and fresh flowers add to the charm.
13. White Modern Farmhouse
If your home decor is more modern, but you want a farmhouse kitchen, no problem. You can easily blend the two styles, just like Sugar Maple Notes did here.
This all-white kitchen features sleek lines with some rustic elements to create just enough farmhouse flair.
14. Some Simple Touches
What do you do if you have a modern kitchen, a small budget, and a desire for farmhouse charm? Take a clue from Chaylor & MADS, and instead of thinking you have to do a complete overhaul, simply add a few intentional pieces.
For example, the sprigs of greenery, glass vases, rustic metal stools, and some quaint signs are just enough.
15. Mixing Old and New
New white countertops, metal knobs and hardware, and freshly painted cabinets combine with old wood floors, a large exposed beam, and textured walls in this farmhouse kitchen from Nu Property.
Another great touch to add some farmhouse charm is the hanging herbs and greenery.
16. Go Green
Add some color to your farmhouse style with some cabinet paint. In this bright and friendly kitchen from HGTV, a cheerful green adorns the cabinets, balancing well with the white walls, ceiling, and gleaming farmhouse sink. The look goes especially well with the wood floors and rustic table.
17. Full Farmhouse Flair
How about going with wood from top to bottom to create your farmhouse kitchen masterpiece, like in this example from Pinterest?
The exposed wood beams and ceiling feel right at home with the wood floors, trim, and wood cabinets. But using different types of wood keeps things from getting too overbearing.
18. Copper Farmhouse Sink
Using unique and beautiful elements throughout your space can help you achieve the design you’re going for. For example, in a farmhouse kitchen, a classic is often a farmhouse sink. But, it doesn’t have to be the typical white.
Instead, opt for a real beauty like this copper sink from Signature Hardware.
19. Glam and Gray
There’s no reason a farmhouse kitchen can’t have a little sparkle and pizazz. Check out this stunner from CQC Home, with medium-gray lower cabinets and bright-white cabinets on top.
They go incredibly well with the countertops and sparkling globe pendants, which also add a rustic touch, as do the exposed beams.
20. Sing the Blues
This bluesy kitchen does everything but make us want to sing the blues. Amy Swanson Homes shows off robin-egg blue cabinets that allow the gold hardware to pop and give the space an English-country vibe.
The gold carries through on the appliances and light fixtures and the pot filler is an especially nice touch.
21. Farmhouse Cupboard
Bringing in farmhouse-friendly furniture items is a great way to add to your kitchen’s design without having to do a complete remodel.
If your farmhouse preference leans more toward shabby chic or country cottage, then this beautiful hutch from Etsy, complete with chicken wire cabinet fronts, is for you.
22. Repurposed Island
Taking furniture from elsewhere in the home and repurposing it as a statement piece in your kitchen is a classic way to bring some farmhouse flair into your kitchen.
In this more modern farmhouse from DIY Show Off, the focal point is an antique dresser that the homeowners use as-is for an island.
23. Wood Ceiling
This charming kitchen from HGTV mixes some rustic elements with more modern features to create a warm and inviting space.
While the room would work with a white or painted ceiling, this kitchen goes a step farther. Paneling your ceiling with some beautiful wood planks is a great way to add some rusticity.
24. Industrial Farmhouse Island
If you have a smaller kitchen, but you still would love to use an island in the space, consider using a portable kitchen cart.
You get extra workspace and storage, but it won’t take up as much floor space as a dedicated island. For a more industrial, rustic farmhouse kitchen, this portable island from Wayfair is a great choice.
25. Retro Vibes
This cute and cozy kitchen from Robb Restyle channels some fun retro ambiance with its farmhouse design. Check out the white tin ceiling, milk glass light fixtures, and mid-century style pendant light.
Plus, the pops of red in the decor and turquoise on the handles and stools stirs up some 1950s vibes.
26. Chalkboard Menu
True farmhouse kitchens are hardworking and practical spaces, where everything has a purpose. So, incorporating that feel into your kitchen can certainly give you the farmhouse style you desire.
In this stylish kitchen from Bless’er House, a framed chalkboard serves as wall art and becomes the perfect place to jot down notes and menu ideas.
27. Bold Beams
The star of this kitchen is the giant beams that run along the barn-style, lofted ceiling. This rustic farmhouse space from home_and_ambiance keeps things subdued and beautiful so that everything can work together.
The large pendant lights are the perfect balance between the magnificent ceiling and the rest of the space.
28. Rustic Decor
For quaint, country touches, bring in bits of rustic decor like these mason jar utensil holders and containers from The Rustic Peach.
They’re the perfect way to add storage to your space that helps enhance the overall design of the room. They also give the kitchen the feel of a friendly, neighborhood general store.
29. Hang Copper Pots
Copper accents are a great way to add some elegant rusticity to your kitchen, and using copper pots and pans is practical and beautiful.
In this kitchen idea from Amy, hanging pots on a wall-mounted rack turns them into an art display, as well as tackling an all-important storage issue.
30. Use Bench Seating
When you’re creating a farmhouse kitchen, trade out your matching dining set for an eclectic assortment that features a bench.
This stunning setup from Pottery Barn showcases a farmhouse-style table with a bench on one side and chairs on the other. Using a bench as seating immediately stirs up farmhouse feelings.
31. Let the Sunshine In
This cheery take on the farmhouse style from Jennifer Payne keeps things bright as sunshine, with yellow walls and yellow accents.
The bright yellow adds the perfect pop against the white trim and cabinets. Plus, only using white and yellow in the space keeps it from getting too fussy.
32. Two-Toned Cabinets
Using different colors on your lower and upper cabinets can add a sense of the farmhouse style or a more rustic vibe to the space.
Especially when you use cabinets with a Shaker-style like in this kitchen from Sustainable Kitchens. Another great touch is the milk crate incorporated into the lower cabinets.
33. Hang a Curtain Under the Sink
An easy way to add a dash of farmhouse flair is to hang a curtain across the opening below your kitchen sink, instead of cabinet doors.
This curtain from Etsy adds the perfect touch, working well with the white cabinets open shelving, and other rustic touches.
34. Swap Out an Island for a Farm-Style Table
This rustic kitchen takes advantage of the wood ceiling and exposed beams to make a modern farmhouse space with lots of style. But, the winner here is the seating area.
Standard Reclaimed opts to place a large farmhouse table with a wooden bench for seating in place of an island in the kitchen’s center. It creates the ultimate, classic eat-in kitchen.
35. Use Open Shelves
It’s also an excellent storage solution in smaller kitchens that might feel too heavy with upper cabinets. If you want a more modern look, go for floating shelves.
36. Brick Floor Inlay
A brick floor can be a great way to create a farmhouse look in your kitchen, adding a real rustic element into the space.
But, if you don’t necessarily want your entire floor to be brick, or it’s not in the budget, consider adding a smaller inlay, like Petite HAUS. It gives you the same idea and feel for less.
37. Colorful Vintage Flair
This kitchen from Vintage Farmhouse was so colorful and fun, we had to include it in our list.
The bright colors and patterns almost seem like they would belong in a small farmhouse cottage in Scandinavia. The high-gloss counters are stunning and the ceiling tops everything off brilliantly.
38. Black and White Kitchen
You can’t get more classic than black and white, and using it in a kitchen is a popular choice.
In this elegant, rustic space from Clark and Co Homes, black lower cabinets are the perfect contrast to white and glass uppers. The brass fixtures and wood stools add rustic elements.

Here’s a swap; instead of all white cabinets and an exposed wood ceiling, myrusticmodernhome flips the style.
The white ceiling and trim frame out the natural wood cabinetry and built-ins, to give this kitchen a unique, rustic flavor. The marbled backsplash and glass cabinets also keep things feeling light.
41. Add a Dash of Bohemian Flair
If you like a more eclectic, bohemian style, mixing up different colors, woods, and metals is a great place to start. In this kitchen from Hotdecors, the cabinets are a mix of natural wood stain, darker stain, and sage green.
It all flows well with the black metal pulls, copper sink, and thick butcher block countertops.
42. Bricks and Shiplap
The combination of the brick and shiplap walls here works really well together.
The exposed brick wall and chimney-style range hood in this kitchen from Jacobs Farmstead immediately make you think of a colonial farmhouse. Except, in this more modern space, instead of cooking under the large chimney you get a modern stove.
43. Country Chic Sideboard
The combo of glass and closed cabinet doors allows the piece to serve as both storage and display, and the light wood tone provides chic style to a rustic kitchen.
