Last Updated on January 7, 2020

There’s just something about a country kitchen that never goes out of style. Long gone are the days of the tired “rooster décor,” as farmhouse kitchen designs have turned the corner and become one of today’s hottest trends. Whether they’re rustic, dressy or elegant, farmhouse kitchens blend beautifully into any style décor and bring a warm and welcoming feeling to any home.

See how today’s homeowners are embracing these key farmhouse kitchen design elements into their homes.

Farmhouse Sink

Today’s farmhouse sinks are reminiscent of those found in country kitchens in the 1800s. They are deep, with an exposed front which allows for plenty of room and easy access to accommodate a busy household.

Adding touches of farm décor to your farmhouse kitchen design ties the room together, adding interest and whimsy. Mason jars and glass canisters on the countertops or vintage tins with flowers are a great way to accent your farmhouse kitchen design.
