The kitchen is one of the most used rooms in your house. It’s where you gather your family at the end of the day for dinner. It’s where you host parties and hang out with your closest friends. Our lives center largely around food, so why not make this room the most beautiful, comfortable, and functional one in the house.
These seven essential farmhouse kitchen ideas bring a modern twist to traditional farmhouse kitchen design and decor. They’re fun and useful, adding rustic elegance to your cooking and eating space.
Cow Wall Hook Rack
Who can resist this cute cow rack? Animals seem to go so well in the kitchen, especially in a farmhouse. Maybe because they’re farm animals. Or perhaps because the irony is too hilarious to pass up. Either way, we love this wall hook for pots and pans, measuring cups, utensils, or anything else you need within an arm’s reach while you’re cooking.
You could also use this great piece for coats in your entryway, backpacks in the mudroom, or mismatched socks in the laundry room. It’s presence demands attention, and it will quickly become your most popular conversation piece!
Garden Wire Wall Shelf
Plants go in the kitchen about as well as a spice rack. You can decorate this cute little makeshift garden with flowers, herbs, or seeds. Watching them grow is part of the fun, and once they’re mature, you can use them in your favorite dishes.
The wire and tin give your kitchen counter an outdoorsy feel while bringing function to your everyday routine. It’s charming and rustic and gives you a sense of spring in your home.
Farmhouse Scale Clock
This fun little piece is comical. It looks like a vintage scale, but it’s actually a clock. It’s too much fun not to display front and center. It adds delight to your existing kitchen decor. This vintage-inspired piece goes well in your kitchen, in the breakfast nook, or on the mantle.

Its simplicity accents any decor and provides a dynamic touch of art. Locally grown produce brightens up your fridge, so hang this sign over a door or window for a little bit of your own unique freshness.
