An Industrial Farmhouse Kitchen Is the Best of Both Worlds

We think interiors look even richer and more authentic when two styles are combined. Not quite convinced? Well, let us present this brilliant mash-up: farmhouse meets industrial style. These two aesthetics are more alike than you might think. They both embrace vintage decor and materials. And they both opt for well-loved finishes and patina. Plus, they’re both all about neutral palettes.

When mixed together to create an industrial farmhouse kitchen, the two styles really start to shine. To achieve the look, you’ll want to first wrap in industrial touches, which can include metal lighting, tough, raw, materials like brick and concrete, and lots of reclaimed wood. Next, combine those industrial style elements with classic farmhouse accents, like white cabinetry, a subway tile backsplash, and flea market finds.

Here are seven drool-worthy kitchens that show us exactly how it’s done.

1. Worn-in leather is always a good idea.

If you can, try to incorporate buttery leather into your industrial farmhouse kitchen. We recommend bringing it in with your island seating, either with barstools or in the case of this kitchen crafted by Anastasia from The IdentitΓ© Collective, an industrial leather bench.

2. Focus on industrial lighting.

For your lighting inspiration, picture metal fixtures that look like they could have resided in an old factory back in the day. Paired with a white island and subway tile backsplash, the black metal pendants in this cooking space by Renee and Christina of Park & Oak Design are the ideal finishing touch.

3. Choose metal bar stools.

To continue the industrial theme in your farmhouse kitchen, consider metal barstools. As proven in this scullery belonging to Shannon of Fox Hollow Cottage, stools will provide the perfect amount of edge, unlike upholstered seating.

4. Incorporate black.

While white is typically associated with farmhouse spaces, black is oftentimes linked to industrial interiors. To push your kitchen in an industrial direction, include black pendant lights and a black island, an aesthetic that Kate of Root + Revel has clearly mastered.

5. Create a vintage feel.

If farmhouse and industrial style has one thing truly in common, it’s that they’re both fixated on vintage visuals. With a throwback refrigerator, reclaimed medicine cabinet, antique metal light fixture, and concrete countertop, Vanessa of Vintage Whites Blog have created a flawless industrial farmhouse kitchen with old school charm.

6. Even the faucet can act as decor.

With a focus on metal materials and accents, industrial style can be achieved by spotlighting an attention-grabbing faucet. Molly of What Molly Made opted for a black fixture that would match the grout in her backsplash, and since it’s framed by upper cabinets and a floating shelf, it’s free to take center stage.

7. Sleek lines are key.

Industrial style tends to be slightly more linear and polished than farmhouse design, and you can bring those streamlined details into your kitchen, too. Thanks to the barstools and lighting, this cook space designed by Lindsay Hill Interiors, and showcased through Home Bunch, is a shining example of just how beautiful an industrial farmhouse kitchen can be.
