These ideas from our first-ever renovation of a historic home offer inspiration for floors, ceilings, and everything else—including the kitchen sink!
Keep cabinets simple and straightforward.
Shaker-style cabinets by IKEA have a modern-vintage look that works in a classic farmhouse setting.
Give the backsplash an update.
Stack subway-style tile up to the undersides of the cabinets, and use dark grout for a modern look that's easy to clean.
Wrap the vent hood with custom millwork for a more seamless look.
