Modern Farmhouse Kitchen Ideas

September 26th, 2014 | Home Decor

The kitchen makeover is finally done!! After living here 5 years it was time to give this space a new look, and put all my kitchen ideas into play.  I am so excited to give you a tour of my new modern farmhouse kitchen! You can see what it looked like BEFORE here.

Ready for it?


Modern Farmhouse Kitchen Makeover

I must start with saying that a lot of the items I used to update my kitchen were things I received from my Aunts house. She lived in a big farmhouse and I was fortunate enough to be able to have some of her things. Going through her memories was very inspiring when deciding on our kitchen decor. I hope you like it as much as I do!

The Details.


Yesterday I shared a preview of my baking pan gallery wall, I absolutely love it. It was the perfect solution to a pocket door wall. The aluminum pans are so light I hung them with 3M command strips.

I made the faux roman shade and drapes from this fun fabric I found in the summer clearance. Can you believe I found the fabric after  I chose my paint colors?! It was meant to be!!

The white subway tile made the kitchen so bright and clean.

I can’t tell you how much I’m in love with my new Touch2O faucet from Delta. Check out the details here.

The Hutch.

Modern Farmhouse Kitchen hutch

I picked up this cheap hutch on Kijiji, it was black and brown and looked very cookie-cutter.

I gave it a fresh coat of PPG the Voice of Color paint and switched out the dated wood knobs for brushed pewter hardware.


The Printed Tea Towel Butcher Diagram I made really compliments the rest of the kitchen decor.

A mix of vintage and modern items

The hutch is a hearty mix of vintage and modern items. If the color fit, I went with it… with the exception of the gumball machine. The pop of red isn’t balanced very well, but I’m working on finding some more pieces to incorporate.

The Paint.

Paint selection from Voice of Color for a Modern Farmhouse Kitchen

I asked you all on Facebook and the majority said they loved the cool crisp color Whirlpool  for an accent wall. It wasn’t a huge change from the existing blue, but I love how it put a fun element into the kitchen.

The opposite walls are done in Great Grey. This is becoming my new favourite neutral color. Not too bold, not too muted and perfect in every light!

For the hutch I chose Winter Feather  for the main color and Horseradish  for the counter top and back. In hind sight I could have probably went a shade darker to make a more dramatic contrast, but I love how soft it is. I think it will be great when I change up the accessories with the change of the seasons and holidays.

For the trim work I stuck with a clean white in Snowbank .

It is so hard to choose a favourite part of my kitchen makeover… the hutch, the subway tile backsplash, the vintage items, the soft colors with a pop of blue and yellow.
