More and more it seems, modern-day homeowners are drawing kitchen design inspiration from simpler times down on the farm.

A recent Houzz Kitchen Trends Study found that farmhouse is the preferred kitchen style for young adults ages 25 to 34.

Filled with a warm, cozy charm and laid-back atmosphere that just feels like home, a farmhouse kitchen is the perfect spot for the 49% of homeowners looking to spend more time with family and the 41% who want to do more home cooking.

And despite its resurgence in recent years, the farmhouse look is anything but new, as evidenced by one recent kitchen remodel — in a real 19th Century farmhouse in Southwest Missouri.

If you’re looking for some ideas to add an inviting flavor to your own kitchen, let’s take a look at some of the improvements that Amos Building Co. used to bring this classic kitchen into the 21st century!
