Old World charm meets today’s functionality in this updated Boston farmhouse kitchen by Hawthorn Builders. You’ll find beautiful Shaker-style cabinets, warm wood tones, and plenty of natural light. Not to mention, all the conveniences for today’s passionate chef.
Industrial style bar stools belly up to the kitchen island above. The island is trimmed in light wood to match the pale flooring. And there’s a little pop of lime green in the form of an espresso machine on the counter.
Baskets and breadboards add a bit of texture to the open shelving lined with favorite dishes. The dark counter tops lend richness and just a hint of drama to the beautiful space. The soft colors are easy on the eyes.
Here’s where the convenient part of this Boston farmhouse kitchen comes into play. Pull out shelves in the cabinets make it easy to access pots and pans for cooking. I have one of those lazy Susan corner cupboards and it’s always a struggle reaching into that dark corner to wrestle with handles and lids to get just the right pot. I’d much prefer to have rolling shelves like this kitchen.
A stainless steel backdrop above the range makes clean-up easy. When you have a tile backsplash, you have to wipe any food or grease out of the grouted cracks. Or in my case – I have a bead board back splash and need to clean the grooves. Fortunately I have bath and kitchen paint on the bead board which makes cleaning easier.
Look at the lovely view the chef enjoys when standing at the farmhouse kitchen sink. Three Victorian sconces help to light the prep area when the sun sets. Such a beautiful room for whipping up your favorite recipes. I think I’d keep finding excuses to cook something if this were my kitchen!
