I was blown away by the showroom at Valley Cabinets in Neenah when I accompanied a client to our appointment there this summer. The variety of styles and colors represented was truly inspirational! I immediately gravitated to one of their newer displays- the Fixer Upper looking farmhouse kitchen and another classic white kitchen with an apron front sink ! Here are the highlights!
The mix of white and stained cabinetry, along with the different counter heights and decorative feet are a nod to the true farm kitchens which were often assembled out of pieces of furniture pushed together to create a work area.
This may not be a practical storage solution for every kitchen or lifestyle, but it is a main attraction in the growing farmhouse look. Here it works as an accent to the range hood by allowing more visual space around the cooking area.
Furniture Piece Island
I am in love with this grey-stained island with white quartz top and open storage!
I especially like the X motif on the end, reminiscent of the design created on barn doors and therefore a reoccurring emblem in farm house style.
I am not sure what percentage of the world was familiar with ship lap before the popular HGTV show Fixer Upper sprung it into the spot light- but now it can be found everywhere from powder room walls to kitchen backsplashes.
Classic White Kitchen
In another kitchen display around the corner you have a more classic look, with some of the same touches I love from the previous one including open shelving and the repetition of the X motif in the glass doors. Here’s a closer look-
Apron Front Sink
Otherwise known as a “farm house sink” this classic white sink fits right in with a growing trend in new construction kitchen design right now.
This island, like the previous one, is a different color than the rest of the cabinetry. While more traditional in storage design, this one also features decorative furniture style legs and paneled ends.
Butcher Block Counter Tops
Always a staple in a true farm house kitchen- the addition of a wood counter element, like this butcher block on the island, gives this all white kitchen a pleasant warm-up!
I’ve enjoyed working with Valley Cabinets on some of my current build projects and I look forward to incorporating some of these design elements into my next custom farm house build!
