20+ Farmhouse Kitchen Storage Ideas

Farmhouse decor isn’t just one style. It can be cozy and rustic, elegant and tasteful or ooze shabby-chic panache. Farmhouse styling can also have a distinctly Tuscan, French or American character and can even blend well with a modern industrial theme.

The kitchen is the heart of any home. It’s the place where we not only cook but also talk, eat and hang out with friends and family. It’s the hub around which the family revolves.

DIY farmhouse accessories are a great way to add cozy warmth to your kitchen and home. Many projects are very easy, while others require a bit of woodworking skills or simple tools. You’re sure to make your kitchen an inviting and attractive haven with just a few of these down-home projects.

    This spice cabinet is just great. I was trying to use for some time original packaging but I ended up having like 30 different sized small containers. Acrylic boxes from MUJI are super helpful to storage glass Ikea jars for spices if someone is looking for more minimalistic look 🙂 And this black hook system is also from Ikea. Very useful and helps to save the counter space! I love this post, many great ideas 🙂
