Farmhouse style has hit the mainstream and nowhere does the design seem more fitting than in the heart of the home: the kitchen. This charming design aesthetic is perfect for anyone who finds joy in comfort and solace in age-old warmth.
A modern farmhouse design gives new life to aged elements, and allows traditional and modern pieces to live comfortably side-by-side. Color, texture, products, and accents blend beautifully to create a relaxed space all your own.
The good news is that with the right products you don’t have to be Joanna Gaines from HGTV’s Fixer Upper to pull it off!
Farmhouse design puts an emphasis on the simple, but with Echelon Cabinetry, simple does not mean void of style. Get the best of both worlds with modern components that come with an aged feel. Here are four tips for creating a breezy farmhouse look you can call your own.
Start With The Right Foundation
Flooring and walls are definitely the canvas for any space, but in the kitchen, the right cabinetry can set the stage for your entire design. An apron front sink is synonymous with farmhouse chic, but it’s not the only element that pulls your room together.
To give your kitchen a modern farmhouse makeover, choose a classic cabinet such as one of Echelon’s shaker styles or a more simplified traditional raised panel door. With a variety of door styles and finish combinations, Echelon offers thousands of options so that your design can stay on-trend without looking too cookie-cutter.
Birch, cherry, maple, and oak provide plenty of wood options with three door style collections, and three collections mean you can get the look you want at the budget you need.
Choose An Idyllic Color
Unlike the muted reds and bright yellows of country style, soothing neutrals rule in a modern farmhouse kitchen. That doesn’t mean you have to stick to white. In fact, Echelon Cabinetry comes in modern shades that are always neutral, but never boring.
Since the farmhouse trend has taken off, Echelon has seen a rise in several of their neutral shades, including Latte, Storm, and River Rock. And while light grays and medium browns with gray undertones are still popular, Echelon’s latest cabinet color speaks right to the farmhouse lover’s heart.
“Baltic” is the perfect balance between trendy gray and traditional blue. With its gray undertones, Baltic is fits in any modern space, yet light enough to serve as a neutral.
Complement With Perfect Hardware
Hardware lends itself to a bit of personality, so go ahead and follow the rules when it comes to design but draw the line here. Step outside of cookie-cutter kitchen design and up the decorator ante with unique cabinet drawer pulls, door knobs, faucets and lighting that draw the eye and give your kitchen a little edge.
Echelon offers numerous options in decorative hardware to complement your farmhouse kitchen design. Be bold! Try selecting contemporary drawer pulls in an antique finish, or choose traditional knobs in a modern finish. Select from a wide selection of transitional, contemporary, eclectic, and traditional knobs and pulls in a variety of finishes to create a modern farmhouse kitchen with a twist.
Finish Off With Subtle Accents
Accents are the icing on the cake and farmhouse kitchens have plenty! Galvanized metal, chicken wire, reclaimed wood beams, stained glass and old china all work to create a cozy space. Echelon’s open shelving and tightly woven baskets are a perfect finishing touch. Add a stack of white china plates and a mason jar filled with fresh flowers, and voila!
