Thanks in very large part to farmhouse style whisperer Joanna Gaines, the Fixer Upper aesthetic is no mere fad. In fact, “farmhouse style” has become synonymous with “classic.”
Rustic touches like well-worn antiques, reclaimed and repurposed treasures, and crisp white shiplap walls are showing up in homes all over the United States-including those that are nowhere near the range.
And while you can easily pull off farmhouse style in any room in the house, farmhouse kitchens-with their ruff-hewn open shelving, painted cabinetry, apron-front sinks, and collections galore-are by far the most coveted.
So how do you get one of your own? Do you have to move to a wide-open space and make a farm-sized investment to pull off that charming kitchen of your own? Absolutely not.
You can start small with a few gallons of paint and a well-loved farmhouse table and work your way up to ship-lapped backsplashes and exposed beams.
Even better: It works well whether you live in a big-city condo, suburban track home, or small-town cabin-maybe too well. Good luck getting party guests to hang out anywhere else!

This Indiana kitchen is filled with repurposing ideas. They found the sign in the back of their 1900’s barn and built an island around it. The light fixtures are made out of farming funnels.
Pottery and Crocks
No farmhouse kitchen is complete without a crock collection on display. This homeowner had her open shelving custom made to accommodate the size of the pottery.
