I will talk more about that later on.
Your kitchen is one of the most rewarding gifts you can give yourself and your family.
The heart of your home, your kitchen is where late-night talks, homework sessions, and casual fun and family celebrations take place.
It’s where memories are made.
Before any kitchen project can begin, you have to access what you want, what you can actually have, and what would work best for you and your family.
Our home was an existing new built and we truly fell in love with the kitchen. With that being said, and after living here for 8 years now, there are definitely elements in the kitchen I would change, and perhaps someday down the line some of these wishes will come true.
What could be more charming than a rustic kitchen in an 18th-century farmhouse—or perhaps one that just appears that way?
I have a dream of designing our own ideal kitchen from start to finish, and I will share with you some of just the little things that could and would make a difference.
We love the Rustic, vintage farmhouse feel to a kitchen.
We are collectors of many things.
First, some of the little things anyone can change in a kitchen would be paint.
In fact, we just repainted our kitchen dining area and that made a big difference.
Along with adding the faux beams.
Decorative changes, or a kitchen face-lift, involve sprucing up without tearing down.
This is cheaper of course and can certainly make a huge impact, versus remodeling or starting a new.
I would actually take that step up a notch and have planked ceilings throughout the kitchen.
A beautiful planked rustic ceiling would complete the overall farmhouse look and feel.
More wall space would have been nice as well.
I wouldn’t be opposed to painting a few cabinets in a cheery yellow and white combination.
That won’t happen though. My husband likes the natural wood tones.
I do like the hardware shown here and that I can do.
I would love to have a farmhouse, chunky, chippy cabinet to house all my vintage teapots and dishes.
Vintage, farmhouse–fresh and full of character faucet and sink.
I have already started a collection of copper molds, now I need to work on copper pots.
Appliances and function are an important key element in your design.
Kitchen appliances can’t help but be contemporary, so they’ll introduce a modern element to the most traditional setting.
On the other hand, natural (or faux) stone and wood cabinets, countertops, and floors impart a timeless warmth to even the most up-to-date space.
Our appliances certainly would have all been different than what the builder chose for our home.
Hope I inspired you with some new kitchen ideas. Thanks for stopping by today.
Love your ideas! You’re right the kitchen is a gift for the family!
OMG…. LOVE LOVE LOVE the vintage tin collection. How darling is that!
I’m forming my idea for my daughter to make a kitchen video, cuz Lord knows I don’t wanna be in any video!
Go for it Bliss! Good luck to you my friend.

Hi cookie you can look on line. Penny’s has a large selection and this site called country curtains.
We could probably design kitchens for each other because I love all of your ideas! That planked ceiling is amazing and the touches of yellow are perfect. Best of luck to all the contest entries!
Great ideas! Our kitchen is a wonderful, efficient space, but it is small. I dream of a large kitchen with exposed beams and a large island workspace.

The kitchen at our mountain cottage would win the ugliest kitchen contest hands down. I’d enter it in the contest, but we already have our cabinets and appliances, but I sure would love to see what Nate could do with that awful kitchen. Have always loved the look of LG appliances.
Can’t wait to see it all come together Pam!
