A client, who recently purchased a new home, came to us looking to renovate the Kitchen to be an updated farmhouse aesthetic with industrial features. Here’s a look at the before photo:
To accommodate this new look, we first changed out the current cabinetry to a simple white shaker style door. White beadboard covers both ends of the L-shape cabinetry layout, as well as the back side of the island. Going along with the farmhouse feel, we used a white subway tile as the backsplash and an apron-front sink. The island counter, as well as the open shelving on either side of the sink, is made from reclaimed wood to introduce some repurposed elements in the built-ins. The remaining counters are made from a dark grey quartz. The faucet is an oil rubbed bronze piece, made as the first prototype from a New York designer line with a very factory style look. The cabinetry pulls are vintage Hamilton Mfg. Co. bin bulls, the switch plates are an ornate oil rubbed bronze, and all appliances have a retro aesthetic to fit our client’s eclectic taste.
Seating along the island, as well as a larger dining table has industrial flair with a gunmetal finish. The table is made from reclaimed wood and gunmetal as well. The lighting fixture above this seating arrangement is made from a metal with a heavy patina.
Additional reclaimed banquette seating is provided along one corner of the room, complete with a custom copper and zinc pedestal table. Here, a cork wallcovering with an aged copper look covers the walls. The lighting fixture over this table is fabricated from hoops of old wine barrels.
By pairing very intentional, aged metal pieces and reclaimed woods with simple white cabinetry and blacksplash tile, we were able to blend two styles of design in a very cohesive space. What’s your favorite element from this industrial farmhouse kitchen?
