Kitchen Remodeling 101: The Italian Farmhouse

Farmhouse Fixtures

To create the look, you’re going to need a farmhouse sink. These deep, single-basin sinks look wonderful in copper or ceramic, and can serve as a surprising statement piece for the room. It is also extremely functional with enough room for multiple people to use the sink and wash dishes.

There are also a variety of pendant lights that can add a quaint yet modern appeal to your kitchen. Meanwhile, retro-inspired appliances and copper or wood range hoods enhance the aesthetic. 

Rustic Touches

Wood shaker cabinets lend an element of timeless simplicity to any farmhouse-inspired kitchen. Whether you prefer a natural wood finish or a clean cream or black, the beauty lies in the smooth, streamlined aesthetic. Farmhouse kitchens also look lovely with wood countertops, which allow for easy meal prep.

Many individuals seeking to attain a farmhouse style also opt to hide microwaves and countertop appliances within cupboards and drawers. That way, there’s plenty of space to prepare delicious dishes and enjoy food with family while blending everything together nicely.
