Farmhouse Kitchen Cabinet Ideas

Looking for farmhouse kitchen cabinet ideas? Kitchen cabinets play a crucial role in the overall design aesthetic of a kitchen while providing necessary storage options that aid in creating functional workspaces. Not only do they form the basis for the structural foundation, they can also dramatically transform the entire appearance of the space.

Choosing the best kitchen cabinets and design layout for your own home can be one of the most difficult challenges in the kitchen design process. Given that they are available in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and colors – it can often be overwhelming to narrow down the choices. They can take up to 50% of your kitchen budget, so you want to be sure they are built of quality construction that will stand the test of time.

From shaker and flat panel to bedboard and raised panel – there are many styles to choose from.

If you are presently researching different kitchen cabinet options, I have created posts on bluegreen, white, cream and black kitchen cabinets as well as kitchen blacksplashes.

Different Types of Kitchen Cabinets 

1 Shaker Cabinets 

Shaker cabinets are the most popular style of cabinets thanks to their sleek, minimal, and classic design. They are characterized by five pieces of wood; four pieces as a frame with a recessed panel in the middle. This is a popular trend due to the simple and classic look they offer. Shaker cabinets are also suitable for many interior design styles – from rustic and farmhouse to traditional and coastal. Wood that is commonly used for shaker cabinets includes cherry, maple, hickory, and quartersawn oak.

2 Beadboard Cabinets 

Bedboard cabinets have a classic and timeless style and are another great choice to enhance a farmhouse kitchen. Bedboard is made of rows of vertical planks with indentations or ridges between each plank. This provides a detailed and textured surface with sleek and minimal appeal.

3 Open Shelving Cabinets 

Open shelving provides an airy look between the cabinets while providing an opportunity to create chic and elegant displays. There are a wide variety of options for shelving material, such as rough-cut wood, glass, wood boards, or modern and sleek surfaces. 

4 Louvered Cabinets

Louvered kitchen cabinets have horizontal wood slats that add a unique style to kitchen cabinetry. Louvered cabinets are great for spaces that require ventilation because most louvered doors have spaces between each slat.

5 Inset Cabinets

Inset-style cabinets comprise of an inset door set inside the cabinet frame instead of outside the cabinet frame. Inset kitchen cabinets and kitchen drawers are some of the most expensive on the market, but their classic look lasts for years. 

Kitchen Cabinet Materials 

Given that cabinets are among the most prominent features in the kitchen, it’s important to take time to consider the cabinet surfacing wisely. Choices available range from solid wood to wood veneers, laminate, aluminum, and stainless steel.

Farmhouse Kitchen Cabinet Colors 

The color of the kitchen cabinetry can set the visual tone of the entire kitchen. There are a wide variety of choices of color that work well in a farmhouse kitchen. Here are a few popular colors that enhance this style:

Blue Farmhouse Kitchen Cabinet Ideas

As with gray kitchen cabinets, blue cabinets also come in a wide variety of shades that range from bold navy to softer hues. Navy blue cabinets offer a sophisticated and dramatic appeal, while softer shades add a feeling of brightness and spaciousness.

Black Farmhouse Kitchen Cabinet Ideas

Black cabinets add sophistication and a dramatic flair to kitchen design. Black cabinets work well with white backsplashes that help compensate for the space looking smaller with a darker color.

This kitchen was designed and built by designer Kelsey Leigh and her homebuilder husband, Scott McGregor of McGregor Homes. They decided to focus and combine their talents on the heart of their home – a kitchen that would remain timeless for years to come. With the help of their painters, a 50/50 Sherwin-Williams mix of Ripe Olive and Pewter Green was chosen for this cabinet color that remains the clear standout of this design today.

Calcutta Gold leathered Marble was selected for the kitchen island and backsplash, while black Vermont leathered quartzite was chosen on the countertops for their muted, textured appearance and durability. They chose Engineered French white oak flooring for its durability. The final touches were the mixing of metallic finishes and white Cafe appliances. The kitchen is alive with warmth, texture, and a hint of vintage.

This farm-fresh modern farmhouse kitchen was designed by Katelyn Gilmour of KGB Design. It includes plenty of texture – from the rustic stools to the unique mosaic tile backsplash and aged wood bead chandeliers. The soft green cabinets and island add the perfect contrast to the warm wood floors, copper faucets (rose finish), and white countertops.

Cornwall Slate SW 9131 (216-C4), which covers most of the kitchen’s cabinets, helps establish a balanced look. “The color has a really beautiful warmth to it,” Gilmour says of the green-gray color. “It’s traditional but very fresh and livable.” A warm custom white paint on the range hood and paneled refrigerator provide the perfect complement. “It’s definitely a warmer white, but it’s still bright,” she says. ~ Sherwin Williams

The mosaic tiles are from Walker Zanger’s Vibe line and extend from the backsplashes into the backs of the glass-door upper cabinets. The color of the tile compliments the cabinets perfectly and provides a slightly eclectic look.
