Each example mixes the three essential ingredients for creating a drool-worthy cooking space: modern features, rustic elements, and industrial-inspired accents. When blended just right, the result is a sophisticated kitchen that’s also warm and inviting.

Farmhouse Colors

There are no hard-set rules for modern farmhouse colors. However, a winning palette seen in many spaces combines white, black, and natural wood tones.

For instance, this dreamy kitchen built by Gardner Homes features white quartz countertops, black shaker cabinets, and an island wrapped in walnut wood.

Shaker Cabinets

Wood floors are a modern farmhouse staple. In homes with open floor plans like this one designed and built by AK Construction, continuous wood flooring that includes the kitchen improves visual flow.
