What are some of the elements that make up a contemporary farmhouse kitchen design? I’m David Gordon with Whitestone Builders We’re gonna answer those questions and a few others right now. Stay tuned The first would be high ceilings, so in this particular kitchen we have very high ceilings This is very comfortable For entertaining, hanging out with friends and it just gives a real open feeling The next would be a large island.
We’ve got a very large island here Most people like to entertain and having a large island that people can hang around is something that’s very attractive Another would be a bridge faucet So we’ve got a bridge faucet here and this is really a trend with farm house design And the next item would be oversized fixtures. We’ve got a large brass oversized fixture hanging over the island Again, it’s something that’s very appealing Another item would be the cabinets White is still very popular for this design style Insets, inset cabinet which is what we have right here is also very popular.
So the next item would be a subway tile As you can see, we’ve got a subway tile, three by six, white glossy subway tile What we done a little bit different here with this subway tile is we used a little bit darker grout So this grey grout really makes the subway tile pop, again, this is something that’s very popular as well Some of the other key elements that make up this style would be beat board.
It can either be in a back splash or it can be behind a cabinet door Then we would have brick floors Brick floors give a very warm feeling in this design, it could be either in the kitchen or they could be in another room or even the foyer Or even the mud room Another item would be glass cabinets.
So glass cabinet fronts that showed either a glass shelf or showed a wood shelf work well Then there’s the apron sink, I think this is what most people understand when they see a farmhouse kitchen The apron sink or the farmhouse sink This is a great detail, I think you definitely need to have in this style And lastly would be crystal knobs.
Crystal knobs are very old world, they fit well within the farmhouse style And one of the things we like to do is even if we don’t do crystal knobs within the whole house, we’ll put a crystal knob in the powder room So that we have guests over, they’re hanging out and they ask you hey, where’s the restaurant? Put him down the hall or put him around the corner and say, it would be the door with the crystal knob If you enjoyed this video, Contemporary Farmhouse Kitchens You’re gonna love our videos showcasing latest designs and techniques from industry experts.
