5 Modern Farmhouse Kitchen Ideas

5 Modern Farmhouse Kitchen Ideas

Create a modern farmhouse kitchen for a cozy space to prepare your meals. Inspired by the simpler times of the farmhouse, this style includes a repurposed and comforting country vibe. The modern twist ensures that the space maintains simplicity and functionality in the design. 

Our tile can be made to match any style! Here are some of our favorite kitchen tile design ideas with a modern farmhouse look, we hope they inspire you to dream up the kitchen remodel of your dreams.

Here are 5 modern farmhouse kitchen tile design ideas:

1. Subway Tile 

A classic element to the modern farmhouse style is exposed brick. We love swapping brick for subway tile, either traditionally set or installed in a herringbone pattern. We think this achieves the same look with an inventive and modern twist - plus, the ceramic tile material in this farmhouse backsplash for kitchens is much easier to clean!

2. Neutral Colors

A farmhouse was all about practicality, when it comes to color, that is certainly true. Pick neutral colors that will be timeless and match any decor in your kitchen. To create interest, we like to choose a glaze with more variation.

3. Open Shelving

Open shelving adds charm and character to your kitchen. Decorate the shelves with vintage accessories or beautifully organize your plates and glasses. We love this option because of how beautiful the tile backsplash peeking through looks, ensuring that your open shelf is always stunning.

4. Wood Accents

Just like a barn, make sure to have plenty of layered wood accents throughout the kitchen. To add a modern twist, consider a variety of finishes, leaning towards warm and deeper tones. The color of the cabinetry makes a huge impact on the appearance of the tile, consider the image below with white cabinetry instead!

5. Vintage/Antiqued Decor

Living on a farm was all about repurposing everything to be functional. Seek out vintage and antique items to use in your kitchen for an authentic farmhouse room. This concept can also be applied to the glaze color that you choose for your tile. Some of our matte colors have a more weathered look, providing a sophisticated finish.
