The Modern Farmhouse Style: Merging Tradition and Modern Design

The modern farmhouse aesthetic was the key influence in this project. This style is an eclectic mix of modern and rustic, blending the charm of a traditional farmhouse kitchen with contemporary conveniences. To give the kitchen a modern farmhouse look, we used a combination of rustic wood, metal accents, and bright white cabinets.

Solution-Oriented Design Approach

The challenge was to create a dream kitchen with countertop seating but with limited space for an island. The solution was a design innovation – an angled peninsula. This created enough room for seating, while not encroaching on the kitchen’s open floor plan.

Storage and Functionality

To maintain the farmhouse kitchen classic feel and streamline functionality, we implemented smart storage solutions like deep drawer organizers and pull-out trash bins. The cabinets, from Aristokraft’s Brellin collection, infused the place with a modern farmhouse charm.

The Perfect Countertops

The countertops were a crucial element in this project. We opted for a Calacatta Laza White Quartz material which exudes a sense of elegance and complements the white cabinets. This choice helped us maintain a streamlined look while not compromising on durability or functionality.

The cabinetry, an exquisite combination of Maple and Pecan, exhibits a refined color palette that contributes to the kitchen’s overall charm. The selection of Omega Lynnville Cabinetry offered a classic touch to the design.
