A White Modern Farmhouse Remodel in Mount Bethel, PA


Modern farmhouse remodels have been a popular choice for years among homeowners looking to update their kitchens without sacrificing the inviting atmosphere. But what, exactly, constitutes a modern farmhouse kitchen? This White Modern Farmhouse Remodel in Mount Bethel, PA by Morris Black’s Christine Shorr, CKBD, is a perfect example.


What Makes a Kitchen Farmhouse Style?

Farmhouse-style kitchens are known for their rustic charm. They often feature simple cabinet designs, vintage or distressed finishes, open shelving, natural materials like wood and stone, and the defining apron sink. The rustic charm is often carried through and emphasized by decor such as mason jars and woven baskets.

A modern farmhouse kitchen combines contemporary elements with the rustic charm of a classic farmhouse kitchen. The timeless shaker-style cabinet has become a staple of this design aesthetic. Other common elements include a neutral color palette, quartz or marble countertops, sleek modern appliances, and matte black hardware and fixtures. This combination of contemporary and rustic injects a breath of fresh air into the warm and welcoming atmosphere of the farmhouse kitchen.


What Colors Go into a Farmhouse Kitchen?

Modern farmhouse kitchens typically feature a neutral color palette based on whites, grays, and soft beiges or taupes. These base colors will often be incorporated into the cabinet finishes, countertops, backsplashes, and wall colors. These main neutral colors can then be complemented with small pops of earthy colors like blues, greens, and even charcoals.
