Popularized by famous television decorators and DIY magazines, the farmhouse style of design brings together multiple techniques to create a look and feel that is unique to the homeowner. A blend of vintage, rustic, traditional, shabby chic, cottage, and retro, the minimalistic color palette, and textural elements are an excellent starting point to use when creating an original, modern design. If you would like to embrace this trend in your home through the use of farmhouse kitchen cabinets and custom kitchen remodeling in Fall River, the best place to start is by working with an experienced designer. At Paul’s Quality Kitchens, we provide more than just Fall River kitchen cabinets and bathroom vanities; we also offer professional design services to help you maximize the return on your investment and get the kitchen you have always wanted.
What Are Farmhouse Kitchen Cabinets?
The good thing about this eclectic style is that the type, color, and style of cabinetry that you choose for your farmhouse design can be dark or light; natural wood, stained, or painted; clean and new or weathered and rustic-looking. There really are no rules. The cost to install kitchen cabinets is perhaps one of the most significant when it comes to remodeling, so it pays to work with an expert and get the materials that you want most. Choosing the best color and style can be overwhelming, especially where there are so many options to choose from for a kitchen design.
Some examples of farmhouse-style cabinetry include:
- natural wood cabinets and cupboards, either stained or varnished
- solid white farmhouse kitchen cabinets with hardware accents
- traditional cabinets on the bottom and open shelving on the walls
- a rustic island that is different from classic cabinetry used elsewhere
- options for eat-in kitchen, including family table or barstools at island
- use of various metals for hardware, including doorknobs and drawer pulls
Your best bet is to contact Paul’s Quality Kitchens and schedule an appointment for a consultation. We will come to your home, take measurements of the existing kitchen, and discuss your ideas for custom kitchen remodeling in Fall River. We can answer any questions that you might have about a timeline for the project, cost to install kitchen cabinets, and provide design examples for farmhouse kitchen cabinets, flooring, and anything else that you might need to complete the look in your home.
Other Elements to Consider
If you have ever watched one of those home remodeling programs where they implement the farmhouse style, you might have noticed the use of texture and muted color throughout the space. Beadboard, shiplap, tile, mosaic, and other wall treatments are frequently used to complement or highlight your new Fall River kitchen cabinets. Wood flooring is an absolute must, as is a combination of simple colors to really bring together the farmhouse look and feel. Creams, whites, and tans along with bolder colors for accent, including greens, blacks, blues, and other hues can all be used, depending on the palette that you want to include.
Hanging barn doors, wooden stools, unique countertop materials, and metallic light fixtures are some other elements to include in your farmhouse style design. Well-chosen decorative items, such as glass jars, ceramic plates, weathered cookbooks, fresh flowers, grass baskets, and metal storage can all be used to further expand on this unique style. Colorful kitchen tools, plain white pots and pans, cottage-style hutches to display collections, and an array of antiques, hand-painted objects, and rugs should also be included.
The Farmhouse Sink
Another element that should not be forgotten, along with wooden beams, task lighting, and unique plumbing fixtures, is the farmhouse style sink. Also known as an “apron front” sink, we have used this option in many home remodeling projects right here in Southeastern Massachusetts. Deeper than the average sink that is seen in many modern kitchens, an apron or farm sink will slide in and over the countertop itself, allowing the front of the sink to be exposed after installation. You can see examples of our work on our website under the PORTFOLIO page and view a home that we worked on that included a farmhouse sink.
