20 Modern Farmhouse Kitchen Ideas

When I think of farmhouse style kitchens, I dream up shiplap walls, lots of glass, and beautiful lantern style lighting.

And then there’s modern farmhouse kitchens, which include beautiful clean lines, solid colors, and are very bright.

Combining the two styles really does work, and brings the best of both worlds into space, especially when it comes to the kitchen which is the hub of our homes.

I found these 20 Modern Farmhouse Kitchens that play around with both the farmhouse style and the modern style, and it truly does work!
