They say home is where the heart is, but we think the heart of the home is the kitchen. The easiest way to make your kitchen feel homey but still look chic is by turning it into a farmhouse kitchen.
The popular decor style is unfussy and inviting, with a seamless mix of rustic and modern elements that create a functional and fun space. The rustic aesthetic alongside mixed metal details and stylishly clean backsplashes creates a welcoming atmosphere perfect for the kitchen.
To finish the look, all you have to do is fill the room with unpretentious kitchen decor, like a wooden cutting board or copper canisters, and tie everything together with a farmhouse rug.
For a bit of inspiration — and some farmhouse kitchen rug ideas — keep scrolling to check out eight farmhouse kitchens that will have you planning a remodel, ASAP.
1. New England Charm
The navy and white color scheme gives this beautiful kitchen coastal, New England appeal. But with the large teal Persian-style rug, open shelving, and tiled floor, there’s more farmhouse vibes than anything. To add a modern flare, opt for sleek white open shelves, a marble-inspired backsplash, and copper accents..
2. Bright and Modern
This bright white space is a breath of fresh air. The gold cabinet handles pop with the help of the matching light fixtures. Meanwhile, the grey farmhouse kitchen rug pulls in the gray hues on the tile backsplash and woven bar stools. Add a large vase full of greenery for the finishing touch.
3. Cozy and Chic
Just because a kitchen is small doesn’t mean you can’t make it inviting. Lay down a distressed farmhouse kitchen runner rug over wooden floors for a homey vibe and hang your pots and pans from a metal ceiling rack. Not only will this type of storage save you space, but it also creates a rustic appeal.
4. Mixed Woods
Mix and match different types of wood tones for that truly unpretentious appearance that makes farmhouse kitchens special. After all, white cabinets go with just about everything, including a grey Persian-inspired farmhouse rug, light wood shelves, and a reclaimed wooden coffee bar. Throw up some quaint signs and add some greenery, and we guarantee you’ll feel at home.
5. Two Are Better Than One
This kitchen might look simple, but each element is carefully curated to give the space the perfect lived-in feel. From the large vase with dried leaves to the cookbooks and cutting board on display, each item adds the perfect farmhouse appeal to this minimalist space. We especially love the two coral farmhouse kitchen runner rugs that deliver a lived-in feel thanks to the vintage design, while the varied sizes make it seem carefree yet carefully curated.
6. Busy and Beautiful
This small kitchen gives off the perfect blend of shabby chic and farmhouse vibes thanks to the expertly curated array of bobs and bits strewn about the room that all give off a slightly aged look. But while the decor might seem haphazardly placed, it’s all done with intention to add to the authentic farmhouse vibe. Meanwhile, the small black and white farmhouse kitchen rug delivers an unexpected touch of chicness that perfectly pulls together the space.
7. Little Bit of Old, Little Bit of New
The rustic wooden bar stool alongside the clean white counter seems like it should be a contradiction — but it totally works. In fact, it’s these types of details that give this kitchen it’s farmhouse vibe. The moody dark runner rug helps ground the space and add depth to the white cabinets, backsplash, and counters, while the little details, like the antique painting, give it a personal touch.
8. Linear and Cool
All the sharp lines in this space work together to create something completely eye-catching. For instance, the striped farmhouse kitchen rug pulls out the black handles on the cabinets and the gorgeous barn door-style paneling on the side of the island. The different plants and wooden kitchen tools placed around the room help soften the linear lines and give off a welcoming vibe.
