I worked on the design of this Modern Farmhouse Kitchen with an awesome family. It has been done for a little while, but I just got these fabulous pictures and was so excited that I couldn’t wait to share them. I think you will be blown away by the transformation!


There were so many things about this kitchen that my clients wanted to change that they decided to embark on a full renovation project, and I am so glad they did! New cabinets, countertops, appliances, plumbing and light fixtures, the backsplash, the flooring, and even the layout got switched out creating a kitchen that fit their needs, their lifestyle, their design aesthetic, and the overall flow of the house so much better … Take a look!

Kitchen Inspiration

The number one feedback I got in regards to the design was to keep things clean and mostly white with some special details but not a lot of fuss. We wanted to keep the style in line with the farmhouse style of their home while keeping things modern and crisp. I pulled these photos from different sources on Pinterest to give them the overall look we were going for, and we used them as inspiration in creating our design.


What a transformation, right? We created a layout to maximize the space and give them a much larger island (perfect for preparing as well as eating). We moved the sink area to the large open window and purchased their Kohler farmhouse sink and faucet from BJ Discount. The prep sink and faucets on the island are also from Kohler, and they compliment each other nicely.

I love that we were able to create the overall look my clients wanted for this space with the window to the outside going all the way to the counter and with no backsplash behind. It gives such an open feel to this space.

The millwork details in this kitchen are what makes it so special. I love how the sides of the cabinets and the integrated hood turned out. The ceiling is absolutely stunning as well!

We selected a marbleized quartz countertop and a coordinating backsplash with just enough detail to give this kitchen a little extra character while not taking away from the overall look. We went with a shaker door for all of the cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, and oil rubbed bronze hardware to finish it off.

I think the items, though, that really give this kitchen some warmth and even more character are the gorgeous wood floors, the rustic barstools, and this incredible Wolf range. These details are what dream kitchens are made of!

I was so lucky to get to work with this family Side by Side on this special project as well as a few other spaces in their home (Check out our post about their powder bathroom and how we used the same tile two different ways here). We are even more lucky (in true Side by Side Design fashion), that they have hired Tami to coordinate their son’s Bar Mitzvah coming up next month. I have seen the details, and I know it is going to be amazing! For more information on our design services, contact us at info@sbsdesignla.com.
