Farmhouse kitchens and dining rooms are making their way into every décor. Whether it’s modern farmhouse, a more traditional approach, or a mix of styles old and new, farmhouse dining gathers everyone ‘round the table for a simple meal, or a holiday feast. Mix updated paint colors with traditional dining furniture for a cozy kitchen/dining environment.

Sometimes it makes perfect sense to take a design theme and run with it. Create the ultimate farmhouse dining/living room space by using every traditional element you can find: natural wood lighting, tables, and seating—plus traditional barn doors and a stacked stone fireplace—give your kitchen a down-home ranch feeling.

Modern meets traditional with wide-open gathering spaces meant to keep the cook company. As the heart of any home, providing a large island for guests to gather while the host prepares a meal encourages friends and family to stay in the kitchen. That way, the chef gets to enjoy the festivities while preparing the meal for all to partake.

Add a large farmhouse sink in the center of your kitchen island for an unexpected traditional element in the middle of a modern pewter countertop. This modern take on farmhouse style offers a more refined environment for cooking and gathering, but still has a welcoming feel.
