Farmhouse Kitchen Island Ideas

When it comes to a farmhouse kitchen island, combining style and storage is key. After all, a true modern farmhouse island shouldn’t just take up space – it should create space! This means drawers, cabinets, and sliding compartments.

Aside from the practical kitchen island design features, let’s talk about style. As kitchen designers and remodelers for the past 30+ years, we typically see farmhouse kitchen island designs with tone-on-tone countertops. Pairing white countertops on a white island may skew a bit more to the modern side of a modern farmhouse kitchen, but nonetheless, it is still a gorgeous option!

If your aesthetic leans a little more farmhouse than modern, consider a solid wood countertop with a white or a light gray cabinet color underneath. The color of the island itself should match the color of your other kitchen cabinets, but we’ll get into that in just a second.

Tips for designing a modern farmhouse kitchen


Modern Farmhouse Cabinet Colors & Style

As you know, storage is one of the most important features to incorporate in any kitchen design – no matter what style kitchen you’re building. Modern farmhouse cabinet colors and styles range from super ornate to super simple. Here are a few key elements to consider when shopping for the perfect modern farmhouse cabinet styles:

Cabinet Colors: When you think of modern farmhouse kitchens, think light and bright. A clean white or off-white shade is a timeless option for modern farmhouse cabinet colors, but rustic shades of blues and grays are a trendy way to modernize that hue even more.

Cabinet Design: Keep it simple with the cabinet design and hardware so your unique antiques and detailed décor can hold the spotlight of intricacy! Shaker doors, raised panel doors, or beaded cabinets are some of your best simple cabinet options.

Cabinet Placement: For a slightly more distinctive option to modern farmhouse cabinetry, opt for areas of open shelving – like your upper cabinets – instead of a full line of cabinetry.
