Brightly coloured pickles carefully dated and lined up; a freshly baked loaf of sourdough bread soon to be sliced; around the corner, a few scalloped dishes waiting to be washed – all signs that while on the smaller side, this little farmhouse-style kitchen does more than deliver: it is used and enjoyed every day.
Even in a little space, they didn’t have to cut back on all the kitchen equipment they need and love. How? By designing with storage in mind. Cupboards, drawers, shelves, rails, trolleys and jars all have a home here – taking full advantage of both vertical and horizontal space while adding to the modern farmhouse aesthetic.
While farmhouse-style kitchen fronts make a clear aesthetic statement, smaller pieces - like pots, glassware and wooden chopping boards - are just as important when creating a look.
One of the reasons this kitchen works so well is thanks to its separate washing, prepping and cooking zones. There is enough space to do it all at once without ever getting under each other's feet.

Preserves, pickles, jams or ferments... what bottling experiment will you try out this weekend? Grab some fresh produce, a jar or two and you’ll be well on your way.
