Farmhouse design – traditional kitchen

What’s farmhouse design

Farmhouse platesNowadays it’s extremely popular to have a modern design. Suddenly everything imaginable becomes modern – there are modern interiors, houses, architecture, layouts, kitchens, worktops and plenty of other things. What’s interesting, modern isn’t only related to architecture and design. Our whole lifestyles can be modern. Yet, what’s interesting, there’s still plenty of people who recognize the need for tradition. After all, tradition is our link to the past and as such it’s very important to remember and honour it the way it should be.

Hence, traditional interiors aren’t really obsolete and completely discarded. Modern people still appreciate it. There’s still a fashion to be old school and traditional. Farmhouse design is one of the greatest examples of this devotion to the past. Although contemporary farmhouse design differs from the traditional one a lot it’s still easily recognizable by the set of typical features. First of all, farmhouse design is named like that not without a reason. After all, this particular type of design comes from the styles used in old farmhouses.

farmhouseTypical elements of farmhouse style are for example, heavy furniture full of rough edges and raw surfaces, natural materials like wood or stone, warm colours and emphasis put on harsh practicality. As a result farmhouse design interiors can have two kinds of look. They can be either pretty rough and austere (when it’s practicality that dominates) or they can be warm and welcoming (when the focus is placed on natural materials and colours.) What’s interesting, contemporary farmhouse design is a little bit transformed, which means that it’s got a lot of new faces. What are they?

Is it really a good option?

Contemporary farmhouse design is therefore quite an interesting style. On the hand you can find there plenty of natural materials like wood, natural stone like granite and on the other hand it’s very often combined with modern interior elements like for example metallic elements, industrial materials like cement or brick wall and other things like that. Such combination of elements has plenty of interesting applications. Farmhouse design works especially good in case of kitchens. After all, kitchens  can benefit from heavy furniture made from natural materials. Think for example about heavy wooden table and set of chairs completed with interesting granite worktop and everything is immersed in white. Of course, there’s plenty of possible designs and kitchen is just one example of modern embodiment of farmhouse style.
