Design tips for decorating a green farmhouse style kitchen

Here’s how to achieve the green farmhouse aesthetic room of your dreams.

What’s the best way to design and decorate a green farmhouse kitchen?

Kitchens hold a special place as “the heart of the home” for a reason. They are the bustling hub where food is prepared, creativity flourishes, and cherished moments are shared with loved ones.

Crafting a functional and stylish kitchen design is essential for maximizing efficiency and creating an inviting space for cooking, entertaining, and gathering with family and friends. From the placement of appliances to the arrangement of cabinets and countertops, every element plays a vital role in shaping the overall flow and functionality of your kitchen.

While kitchen design trends and materials come and go, there are some kitchen layout principles that are tried and true. You may have heard of the “kitchen triangle” — placing your stovetop, sink, and refrigerator in a triangle formation. By arranging these three elements in a triangular formation, cooks can seamlessly navigate between tasks, making meal preparation a more efficient and enjoyable experience. This classic layout continues to stand the test of time, serving as a cornerstone of functional kitchen design.

Whether you're in the process of a kitchen remodel or looking to makeover your existing one, these are the key elements to include in your design:

  • Appliances: Common kitchen appliances include a refrigerator, freezer, stove or cooktop, oven, vent hood, microwave, and dishwasher. If you are starting a new kitchen design from scratch, we recommend deciding where your appliances and sink go first and building the rest of the design around them.
  • Sink: The sink is a crucial element in a kitchen, used for washing dishes, food preparation, and cleaning. It’s common to place the sink in front of a window, but this is purely a stylistic choice. If you have the space, some modern kitchens include two sinks in the kitchen design — one for food prep closer to your stove or main worktop and the other for cleaning closer to your dishwasher or where you store dishes.
  • Faucets: Faucets are an opportunity to add a decorative touch. Select finishes that match other metal elements in the kitchen, such as cabinet hardware or lighting fixtures. Consider water-saving models for environmental sustainability.
  • Countertops: Countertops are essential work surfaces in a kitchen. They provide space for food preparation, cooking, and other kitchen tasks. Countertop material choice is often one of the biggest (and costly!) design decisions. Different countertop materials, from natural stones like marble or granite to engineered surfaces like quartz, offer unique textures that can add depth and interest to your kitchen design.
  • Backsplash Tile: A backsplash is typical for behind a stove or sink to protect the wall from splashes of water, oil, and other cooking ingredients​​. While backsplashes are practical choices they also help to add depth and interest to the kitchen. Different materials can significantly affect the appearance and functionality of your backsplash. For example, glossy ceramic tiles will reflect more light and help make a small kitchen feel larger, while natural stone tiles could add warmth and texture to make a larger kitchen feel more cozy.
  • Cabinets and Storage: Incorporate a mix of open shelving, base cabinets, wall cabinets, or tall pantry cabinets in your design for storage space for dishes, cookware, and pantry items. Select a cabinet material or color and cabinet hardware that fits with your desired farmhouse style.
  • Kitchen Island or Work Table: An island or work table provides additional workspace, storage, and seating options.
  • Runner Rug: A runner can add warmth to your kitchen and a comfortable place to stand while cooking.
  • Seating: Seating areas in kitchens come in all shapes and sizes. If you have an island or work table, you may want to include stools or bench seating on one or multiple sides. If you plan to have a dining area in your kitchen, include a dining table and chairs or a breakfast nook with banquette seating. Or, take a page out of our favorite kitchen designer’s book (cough Helen Parkhust of DeVol cough) and include an accent chair or two for a more cozy seating option.
  • Paint or Wallpaper: Select a color or pattern that sets the desired mood for the kitchen and complements the farmhouse style you want to achieve. We are partial to covering walls, ceilings, and trim in a uniform paint color to create a cohesive look. Or consider an accent wall to serve as a focal point.
  • Lighting Fixtures: Proper task lighting is essential in a kitchen. Include lighting fixtures such as overhead lights, pendant lights, wall sconces, and under-cabinet lighting in your design to ensure adequate illumination. Consider the placement of lighting fixtures to eliminate shadows and evenly light the space. Dimmer switches can adjust the mood.
  • Curtains or Blinds: Window treatments not only help control the light and provide privacy but also serve to tie the room's design together. They offer an opportunity to inject color, texture, and pattern into the living space, making it more inviting and personalized. Cafe curtains, in particular, are popular choices for kitchens. Don’t forget the curtain rod!
  • Farmhouse Kitchen Decor: From kitchen towels and storage jars to drying racks and utensil holders, kitchen accessories should be both functional and decorative. Coordinate the color and pattern with the overall kitchen color scheme and farmhouse style to bring your design vision to life.

How do you decorate with green?

Green may be one of the most versatile colors in design. It is a common hue in all design styles and room types. Soft greens like sage, olive, or mint can bring an instant sense of calm or serenity to a space, while bright greens like lime or chartreuse bring a sense of whimsy or retro tone. The use of deeper green hues like pine or emerald are hallmarks of more traditional design styles.

Green is often associated with nature, so consider using it as a foundation for a nature-inspired kitchen color palette. Pair different shades of green with earthy tones like browns, beiges, or muted yellows to create a serene and organic atmosphere.

If you want to make a bold statement with green, consider painting an accent wall in a rich shade of green or using green wallpaper. This can create a focal point in the room and add depth and visual interest. Alternatively, you can opt for a more subtle approach by incorporating green through smaller decor elements like curtains, throw pillows, or artwork.

Lighting can dramatically affect the perception of green. Natural light tends to enhance the freshness and vibrancy of green, making it feel more alive. In artificial lighting, warmer tones can deepen the richness of darker greens, adding coziness to the space.

One of the easiest and most effective ways to bring green into your space is through indoor plants. Not only do they add a pop of color, but they also purify the air (win-win!). Choose a variety of plants with different shades of green and textures to create a lush and vibrant indoor garden.

What materials and home decor should I use to achieve a farmhouse kitchen design?

These days, it feels like farmhouse interior design is everywhere—from our Instagram feeds to our TV screens (thanks, Joanna Gaines). Farmhouse design blends rustic charm with modern comfort and conjures a warm, welcoming feel, reminiscent of a country home (even if you don’t live in the country). To achieve a farmhouse aesthetic in your kitchen, focus on creating a cozy, family-friendly atmosphere.

Farmhouse design typically features exposed wooden beams, wide-plank floors, and a palette of warm neutrals complemented by soft, pastel accents. While farmhouse style tends to embrace a more neutral color scheme, the addition of prints and patterns can infuse warmth, texture, and personality into the space. Commonly, plaid, gingham, stripes, and even floral wallpapers find their way into farmhouse interiors, offering a charming contrast to the subdued tones.

Common decor elements include barn doors, shiplap paneling, apron-front sinks, and vintage accessories (think: mason jars, woven baskets, wood cutting boards, or ceramic mixing bowls). Comfortable, overstuffed furniture with durable fabrics, such as cotton and linen, invites relaxation, while galvanized metal and distressed or reclaimed wood adds to the rustic farmhouse aesthetic.
