We are in the age of technology. With high-tech appliances, inset pot lighting and clean lines everywhere, it is hard to keep a home feeling like home. Everything is starting to feel a bit too sterile for my taste. Here are a few touches that can keep your home feeling more comfortable while not sacrificing on any of the modern conveniences.
Shaker Style Cabinets.
Not only are shaker cabinets a classic, they are the centerpiece of “modern farmhouse” kitchens! The Farmhouse style is sought after because of its homey vibe while still feeling clean and somewhat modern. If you’re in the market for some cabinet refacing, this is a sure-fire way to update your kitchen and create a more homey home!
Oil Rubbed Bronze.
Oil rubbed bronze hardware is a classic as well! Stands true to the test of time. Instead of going for brushed nickle or the standard silver, choose a bronze or copper for your cabinet hardware and fixtures. This will keep the space feeling warmer and keeping it more grounded.
While this leans on to the oil rubbed bronze subject above, having more industrial lighting fixtures and seating adds more texture to the space. Incorporating wood furniture and art is another great way to add warmth and texture to a once sterile space.
The best part about farmhouse sinks is how deep they are. Having a deep sink means you can let dishes soak and not have to worry about putting them away when company is over. (The sink is so deep, no one walking by will be able to see them!) Farmhouse sinks also add an additional dimension to an otherwise flat kitchen.
