We believe that a home’s true heart lies in its kitchen. After all, it’s where all the delicious magic happens, isn’t it? And if you’re an old soul, the charm of a rustic kitchen is hard to resist. So if you’re looking for ideas on how to turn your kitchen into the quintessential farmhouse-inspired heaven, you’ve come to the right place!
What is farmhouse kitchen decor?
If you’re thinking of going for a rustic, farmhouse decor for your kitchen, there are a few tricks to keep in mind. Follow these aesthetic ideas, and you’re sure to have a super cozy farmhouse kitchen by the time you’re done decorating!
Imagine a farmhouse, and you can practically smell the sweet aroma of wood! A rustic kitchen is incomplete without wood furniture and accessories in it. From cabinets, shelves to kitchen accessories, having wooden items will add that warm, cozy look to your kitchen.
A farmhouse-inspired decor is all about keeping it natural. Adding natural stone elements to your kitchen will only bring your space closer to nature. You can go for an all-stone wall, flooring, or natural stone such as granite or quartz for your kitchen counter.
Distressed/ weathered paint
The true essence of the rustic style is one that needs minimal touch-ups, and an almost out-of-the-bed look, but for home decor! Which is why furniture painted in the weathered or distressed style works really well. Furniture made from reclaimed wood (wood from old furniture) also fits in perfectly with this theme.
From wooden photo frames, serving trays, chalkboards to metal cutlery holders – there are so many accessories that can turn your kitchen into a countryside-inspired haven! These little touches – be it wooden hanging light fixtures or plants, can make all the difference in adding an inviting warmth that is signature to a farmhouse kitchen.
