Traditional farmhouse style kitchens made a huge comeback in recent years. They are classic, timeless…and also, today’s must-have kitchen design. However, when I started to research ideas for an Early American farmhouse kitchen design, I was shocked at how little I found.
I will use this page to tell you everything I learned while designing and constructing our dream Colonial kitchen. You won’t have to struggle to think up all of these ideas from scratch like I did.
We’re on a journey together here. I’m starting to build this page in January 2019. Please bookmark it, follow me and pin this stuff so you can return and see the new articles I posted. I created a dedicated Pinterest board for Early-American farmhouse kitchen design, too.

Hey and, I learned yesterday that my kitchen already started to inspire other kitchen renos happening right now in Connecticut. Thank you! I’m an older sister so I learned young that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
