This year, the farmhouse style is more popular than ever. We all love it because it’s warm, cozy, classy but also laid-back and full of charm. The farmhouse style is all about embracing traditional elements in contemporary spaces. Here’s how to create the perfect farmhouse style using only IKEA furniture and decor.
Farmhouse Kitchen Sink and faucet
The kitchen is the heart of every traditional home. To create the perfect farmhouse style kitchen use the Havsen sink from Ikea. This type of sink is deeper than modern stainless steel top-mount versions, making it even more functional. As a result it’s more comfortable to use. Complete the farmhouse look by adding the Glittran faucet to the porcelain sink.
Whitewashed cabinets, porcelain sink, rustic tap… what’s next? The perfect countertop, of course. A good option from Ikea is Karlby a solid oak countertop with a country look.
Adding industrial bar stools to your kitchen island or breakfast bar area will refine the traditional country-style look. Råskog bar stools are suitable for a bar height of 35⅜”. You can opt for, either beige or black, both colors work great in a farmhouse style interior.
The Stenstorp kitchen cart gives you more space to prepare, serve and store items. Keep it stationary or move it to where you need it. The white body and wood countertop create a warm, rustic look, perfect for your farmhouse style kitchen.
Here are a few accessories and decor items from Ikea that will complete the look of any farmhouse kitchen:
