Modern Farmhouse Kitchen

A remodel mixes convenience with cottage charm.

Old world Shaker cabinets are invigorated by stainless appliances, including a stainless farmhouse sink, and light wood flooring, ceiling and countertops. The maple floors are complemented by the chunky maple island with turned legs, which doubles as a work surface and a casual dining spot.

For more island inspiration, see our Kitchen Tables As Islands photo gallery.
