Farmhouse Fab Kitchen Design

A farmhouse kitchen was once a thing of the past; but today we see them coming back strong. Farmhouse kitchens possess natural elements and bring about a feeling of warmth. They are classic and comfortable; keeping the elements simple and organic. But that does not mean a farmhouse kitchen cannot have a sense of elegance. The farmhouse kitchens of today can range from dressy to rustic…or anything in between!

Here are some of the fabulous fixings’ for a farmhouse kitchen we are obsessing about today.

Farmhouse Sink

Farmhouse sinks or apron sinks, as they are also known, were designed in times gone by for the work a woman did in the home like canning, washing, cooking, etc. The “apron” on the front of the sink allowed for less strain as she worked over the sink for quite some time. The countertop was eliminated from the front of the sink causing less strain as she worked. The farmhouse sink still allows for less strain on the back but it is on many must have kitchen wish lists for its classic beauty and character.

Open Shelves

Open shelves allow for your beautiful dishware and décor to be seen as well as providing expansive storage. Just a tip; you do not have to have your whole kitchen with open shelving; just a few places here or there will do the trick. Open shelving also allows you to use that unusable space in your kitchen, like around the door frame that, otherwise, would have been wasted.
