I am the worst about sharing completed projects. I sat down last night to make a list of the things I had neglected to add here on the blog, and let’s just say…I may now have several printed pages of things I need to work on. Oops! lol! :0 There are so many spaces from the Midway Modern Farmhouse that I haven’t even revealed yet, it’s time to get on it! This farmhouse kitchen remodel is one you don’t want to miss!

This kitchen…well the whole house actually, just needed a complete overhaul. It had such great bones, but looked very dated. The biggest changes that we made in this house also happened in the kitchen. One wall in particular was a bit cumbersome to move, but it HAD to go. I remember walking in the front door the first time I saw the house and saying “step 1…that wall comes out!” That short little 4″ wall was carrying a big load, and it blocked the kitchen off from the family room…it had to be fixed! 😉 Here are a few shots of that wall and it’s removal before and after..
The upper cabinets came down, the peninsula came out, and then the wall, all to give us a lot more space to work with for this farmhouse kitchen remodel.
It made SUCH a difference in this whole house and was worth every penny! The light came pouring in that room all of a sudden. Being able to see the family room from the kitchen makes the whole downstairs feel so much more welcoming and inviting.
You can see in the picture above as well that we made one more big change in the structure of the kitchen by closing off a doorway that was on the wall to the left. It connected the dining room and kitchen, and while this is sometimes preferable for flow, this family did not plan on using the dining room much and it made such a difference to gain that space in the kitchen for more cabinets and appliances. The prior kitchen had very little countertop/cabinet space and a tiny fridge which needed to be remedied for this extended family of 24 and growing! You can see that doorway and tiny fridge here.
Finally, the kitchen had no island, which these days, it’s tough to do without in a modern kitchen. Grandma envisioned all the grandkids gathered around the island to make cookies and so we needed a big one! By removing the peninsula and opening up that wall, we gained lots of space for a huge island.
Our client wanted a warm farmhouse kitchen so we went with a very light gray cabinet, dark stained wood island, and gold hardware. The pictures here unfortunately do the gray cabinets justice. They are this perfect taupey gray that looks so stunning.
I always love it so much when I get to see these plans that we labor over for weeks and then wait months for them to be built, start to come to life.
The new wall where the opening to the dining room used to be was the perfect spot for the new custom range hood, a stove and some open shelving to display pretty things.
The backsplash adds another layer of gorgeous dimension to this farmhouse kitchen. 4×4 matte tiles in varying shades of gray add just the right amount of subtle interest and depth. The prep sink in the kitchen island helps make prepping meals for large groups even easier.
We chose this gorgeous stone for the countertops. Such pretty movement and color that brings out the gray on the cabinets even more. The island is so big it required 2 slabs!
