Here, with its adjoined butler’s pantry, this farmhouse kitchen enjoys its high-ceiling space under a vaulted ceiling.

A blue-painted tin backsplash gives the room an old-world charm while adding a pop of color. Likewise, the blue raised-panel island with open shelving adds a sense of openness to the island. This shelving also offers great storage to stow cookbooks, wicker baskets, wood bowls, or cutting boards.
What defines a farmhouse kitchen?
Warm and welcoming farmhouse kitchens are inspired by country living, abounding in warming wood shades and natural materials. They typically incorporate a wide array of materials, from glass to distressed wood, metal, and wrought iron. In that sense, they don’t only want to look rustic but also speak to the tactile senses of kitchen users.
Another key element to easily define a kitchen as a farmhouse style is butler sinks. Made of copper, hammered brass, marble, and fireclay, they contribute to the country style of farmhouse kitchens significantly. Likewise, open shelving, racks, and exposed kitchenware are very common scenes that give a kitchen a country vibe. It is all about practicality and easy access to the most used items rather than keeping the room sleek and clutter-free. That’s why X-details on the cabinets along with shiplap details and exposed wood beams are also welcomed as accents in farmhouse kitchens.
Though, today, you can find farmhouse kitchens leaning toward different styles. For example, industrial-farmhouse kitchens as well as contemporary farmhouse kitchens are very popular. In these kitchens, generally, it is the kitchen islands that make the design look more farmhouse. For instance, industrial kitchens generally boast islands made of reclaimed wood and topped by solid stone or butcher block countertops. By contrast, modern farmhouse kitchens feature waterfall islands topped by polished quartz and marble countertops.
Since merging different styles is part of design trends, sometimes it is tricky to make sharp distinctions between a farmhouse and other designs. But originally, a farmhouse kitchen is recognized by its butler sink, love for wood and texture, and open shelving.

How to make a farmhouse kitchen island?
First, decide on the design of your kitchen island and how big it should be. According to the measurements, get wood studs or base cabinets. If you want something small, 2 cabinets would be enough. But for a larger size and plenty of storage, 3 base counters are more beneficial.
The next step is to attach the wood pieces or cabinets by drilling cabinet screws. After creating a well-secured solid base, apply cabinet panels to the edges, back, and front with wood glue. To support it and secure the panel even more, you can use nails on the edges. If you need to cut the panels, you can use a jigsaw or circular saw. And to top the cabinets, choose your material wisely. Since farmhouse islands love natural textures, consider wood or a natural stone countertop. Yet if you seek a modern alternative, quartz countertops can be a great substitute.
And if you want to make some changes to the already existing island to make it more farmhouse-like, you can install baseboards or X features on the island edges. Or vertical or horizontal shiplap boards can be installed on the front to create an eye-catching look. Or even better, if you love true rustic and aged-looking furnishings, you can give a distressed finish to your island. You can apply a coat of chalk painting and sandpaper on the island to achieve this effect.

In the rest of the room, the green shaker cabinets topped by butcher block countertops create a very nature-inspired design.

How do I get a farmhouse-looking kitchen?
Farmhouse kitchens come with lots of storage, islands with open shelving, and a lot of natural materials. So, feel free to sprinkle wood accents and decors, such as cutting boards, here and there. For example, a cluster of shovels or cutting boards exhibited on walls could make another eye-catching addition. Or instead, an iron-storage rack or casual open racks, floating shelves could be used. The shiplap details, V-groove cabinets, and X-features on cabinet or island ends ensure the design looks textured and more dimensional.
As for lighting fixtures, go with a wrought-iron lantern or rustic design. Additionally, metal-finish dome-shaped and glass pendants are also commonly used.
To achieve a successful farmhouse look, try to attain a level of authenticity with rustic finishes, reclaimed wood accents, and natural and patinated finishes. Islands can be used to bring subtle contrasts or can be painted or given a distressed finish.
