What is a modern farmhouse kitchen?

A modern farmhouse kitchen – sometimes referred to as a ‘country kitchen’ – adopts aspects or entire design ideas derived from old-style countryside kitchens. They’re made to blend a homely, cosy feel with a clean and uncluttered aesthetic. They’ve become more popular in recent years, particularly in crowded city centres where a sense of laid-back country living and rustic style may be more challenging to achieve.

What to expect in a modern farmhouse or country kitchen:

Typical features of a modern farmhouse design:

  • Natural materials.
  • Subtle, natural tones.
  • Open cabinet displays.
  • High end appliances.

How to use each of these design features to create a modern farmhouse kitchen:

  • Natural materials like stone, wood, marble and slate. There are a number of ways to incorporate these into your kitchen from splashback surfaces behind your oven to terracotta tiles and marble countertops.
  • Subtle, natural tones like whites, beiges, creams and beige make the perfect base for recreating a modern farmhouse kitchen. This is because they’re calming, neutral colours that create soothing environments for you to unwind in – great if you’re hoping to curate a peaceful family atmosphere.
  • Another way of creating a country feel in the comfort of your own kitchen is to abandon some cabinet doors and replace them with small, decorative fabric curtains. For ultra-country vibes, opt for a textured linen or a playful gingham print.
  • Modern farmhouse kitchens often creatively blend country kitchen touches like cupboard curtains, natural furnishings and exposed stone walls with cutting-edge appliances to maintain a contemporary feel. This can include powerful extractor fans that introduce a dynamic edge to the kitchen design as well as serving the dual purpose of ventilating the kitchen and keeping moisture from damaging natural materials like wood.
