Topic tags/keywords: best farmhouse kitchens farm kitchen designs country kitchen designs century old kitchen rural kitchen designs

Our client bought a beautiful, 150 year old farm house with a number of acres, a large work shed, a pond, a silo, etc. They wanted the very best farm house kitchen design she could find. Their ‘new’ place was wonderfully ancient, with post and beam construction but not a single floor in the house was flat (much less level / LOL). We ended up rebuilding their master bath, installed cabinets in their pantry and completely re-did this kitchen I’m writing about.
She had good taste (my opinion) and liked the look of the cabinetry on our website. She sent me a few pictures of cabinetry from a vintage cabinet shop in England. They were doing authentic, century old reproduction furniture. The look was perfectly understated. We used a few of their details but more importantly, she conveyed the kind of look she was attracted to… and we came up with this kitchen design….
You’ll notice there are no wall cabinets…
I really love old, vintage woodwork and so glad a client was looking for just that look.

You nailed it my friend! I do love the old ways for sure. I am doing something similar with our lake house. However, no wall cabinets are to minimalist for me (well it would be for my wife).

Nice stove and hood! We are going with Thermador for our 48” range and inline refrigeration with matching panels to hide it. What did your client go with?

Wow! Outstanding! You must have a very happy client. Looks like a Wolf range to me. Very tastefully done. Love those counterweighted light fixtures.

Where’s the woodworking? I see a cutting board and floors with some 1×6 on a wall.
Don’t get me wrong it’s a great Martha Stewart kitchen look. I’m not into painted kitchens

If you think all woodworking is seeing wood…. here is a video I made of a table I designed & built.

Don’t fret it Russell,
People, not in business, might not notice the trend moving towards painted cabinetry.

I for one can guarantee there is just as much work that goes into (medium to higher end) painted furniture.
Materials may be different, but the same techniques and the same amount of labor goes into it.

Good looking kitchen, well done!

Yeah, but the Martha Stewart comment was a slam. I didn’t appreciate that.
I know you put a lot of hard work into it, and just because he doesn’t like painted finishes there was no need for that.
I’ve learned that when I don’t care for something, I just move along.

I like your other Kitchen work you did the one with green highlights?
Inset doors and drawers are not easy I do understand the skill involved.

What Jbay do you like Martha Stewart?

I think it looks great.

BTDT I can tell you the joinery and finishing have to be way more accurate with paint vs. natural.

If you built it & did those inset doors I can guarantee there is ww’ing!! LOL

No,
I think your comment using M.S. was a derrogatory remark to rehuds62

Russell, the woodworking in that kitchen is terrific, nice job all around. Design, execution, fit and finish, all look great.
