Cottage Farmhouse Kitchens – Inspiring In White
My love for white kitchens inspired this collection of white kitchen projects in a variety of styles, with some of my favorite features! Looking for inspiration and ideas for a white kitchen with a farmhouse sink, or a wood ceiling? Perhaps wood beams, a soapstone counter or mix of both rustic and refined finish is to your taste? Me too!
What is it about a white kitchen? Cottage, Classic… Farmhouse. Doesn’t matter. If it’s a kitchen… and it’s white, you can be pretty sure I’ll love it. Throw in dark wood floors… and I might jump up & down a little. Add marble or soapstone counter tops and I’ll probably squeal so high, only your dog will hear!
I realized just how much I really do adore the “white” kitchen look when I was looking over my Kitchen Love Pinterest board and noticed almost every single kitchen I’ve got pinned has an overwhelming, if not all white palette.
When we bought our current home, we were working with a contractor. And… let’s just say that did not go very well. When the dust settled, we were left with a greatly reduced budget.
After “parting ways” with the bad man. lol. My husband, my dad & I, ended up renovating our home ourselves. I had planned and saved for specific features and finishes throughout our home, but due to our greatly reduced budget, I was forced to make hard choices — kitchen included, based on price and not so much on what I wanted, which even then was a white kitchen.
While we went as light as possible and I’m thankful for what we have… I still daydream in white.
Now I’d like to share some of my very favorite white kitchens with you:
They inspire. delight… and make my heart light. The following two kitchens boast soapstone counters. The chunky, rustic beam in this one is amazing!
We had a beamed ceiling at the last house, there were more… but they were definitely not as fabulous as the one above! Below are a few old pictures from way before I was blogging.
Back to the Soapstone…
This one’s got it, plus so many more elements I adore. Subway tile, open shelves, matching farm sink. De-lish!!!
The open shelf style cabinet over the window is a beautiful touch.
Joan has one of the most gorgeous blogs I’ve ever visited.
Each room is charming and warm, with a casual elegance.
This kitchen dressed for Christmas is an all time favorite! It’s top to bottom… perfection. I always stop in my tracks when I see it somewhere.
This one is another huge favorite! It’s great mix & balance of color and decorating styles. Expertly blended.
This one is great top to bottom! The ceiling is fabulous. Our to-do list includes adding some sort of feature to our existing ceiling but we have not made a firm choice as to what that might be yet. It’s fun looking and getting ideas though!
After seeing so many kitchens with open cabinets, I thought I’d go for a few open cabinets too! I removed my cabinet doors on the far side of our kitchen and I’ve never looked back . I love that I can see my goodies so much better now! It really makes a difference and I’m so happy I did it.
It’s fun being able to make changes as my tastes do! You can see the complete open cabinet with chalkboard paint project [click here].
Anyone who has read me more then once will know why this kitchen made the cut… H e l l o Aqua!
Pretty sure the ART in this shot is the star of this kitchen!
And then, we have a much more casual vibe in this farmhouse feel kitchen that has a great balance of open, glass front & chalkboard painted cabinets.
Now, this next one is very rustic, but I love it as much as a fancy kitchen. If I could deconstruct my home, I’d love open beamed ceilings. They are already vaulted, so I’m halfway there right?
I‘d have this sink in this next kitchen in a hot minute!! Even though it’s not the under mount style that I’ve had on my wish list forever.
See? White Kitchens — Cottage Style, Rustic, Romantic, Farmhouse or French Country… I love them all!
What’s your dream kitchen style?
