I am thrilled to tell you the kitchen remodel of our farmhouse is pretty well complete! I am elated to have my kitchen back again. The kitchen /eating area seems to be the heart of our home – basically where we end up spending most of our time. It is where we meet each other, say our “hellos” and “goodbyes”, gather together, eat meals together, cook together, laugh together, and even sometimes cry together. One verse that I often think of with the importance of fellowship is from is from Romans 12:10 “Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.” I would like instill this as remembrance for hospitality and a standard to live by.
Today, I am providing our readers with all of the resources to the various kitchen components for this design. I can’t say enough about our contractor, Brian Thompson. He did an awesome job – he knows details and he knows how to get the job done. Great work!
For the walls in the kitchen , I found subway tile: 3″ x 6″ Florida Tile: Streamline in Buff, combined with French Gray grout. Grout selection is important! I do believe that, “Design is in the details.” For more guidance on finding the right grout color, visit this website by Emily Henderson. For the areas that were not tile, we chose Sherwin Williams paint in SW7043 Worldly Gray.
We used shiplap from our local Lumber Company and installed it vertically around the island area.
We used porcelain tile on the floors, but it has the look of wood. I like the color because it hides a lot and it’s neutral. Floor Tile: 6″ x 24″ Anatolia Tile & Stone: Amaya Wood in Walnut
For the cabinets, we used a combination of knobs and pulls. Amazon: Oxford Knob Antique Hardware (has a much darker look in actuality than that in picture).

B&K Woodworking referred me to these sliding door track. This is the track for 2 sliding doors. Amazon also carries a single barn door track. Barn Door Hardware: Amazon: Smart Standard 13′ Sliding Barn Door Track
I stumbled across this couple from Pleasantville, Iowa who make all of their own sliding barn doors as well as furniture. I was impressed with their ability to make these doors, and for a good price.

For the lights, I knew much of the kitchen would be white and light, so I thought darker heavier light fixtures would balance it out some as well as tie in with the hardware. I found the light fixtures from Bellacor.
