3. Hang string lights indoors or outdoors

String lights are a great outdoorsy decor idea for farmhouse kitchens. You can hang them almost anywhere. Wrap them around a pergola or hang them from post to post.

You can also attach them outdoors on your farm around trees outside your window or along other plants. There are so many possibilities

String lights add character and make kitchen decor more interesting.

Outdoor string lights can be hung over pools or around gazebos.

4. Use candles to add character

Farmhouse kitchens should have a retro vintage look. Nothing gives off that vibe better than candles. They’re stunning. Candles used to be the only light source in the olden days. So they give off a very retro vibe.

While candles aren’t the most practical lighting option anymore, they still look great and are an excellent decor option. Line them up on your kitchen island or place them outside next to your window.

If you have a table in your kitchen, you can use a candle holder. It will give your meals an opulent feel.

5. Make DIY pan or pot hangers

Hanging your pans reduces the need for cupboards and opens up so much storage space. Your kitchen will look lighter and spacious. Also, you get to show off your luxurious pots.

Using a wooden hanger will give your kitchen an outdoorsy feel, which is key when it comes to picking furniture for a farmhouse.

You can buy these hangers at any department or hardware store and give your kitchen a rustic industrial look. Or you can make them yourself by recycling an old piece of wood.

6. Labels for food jars

From coffee to salt and herbs, there are endless things that go in jars in everyone’s kitchen. If you want to be organized, an easy way to do so is by getting a modern-looking set of matching containers and getting labels for them.

It’s a small thing that makes your kitchen look a lot more coherent and put together. Even Khloe Kardashian does it.

A coherent kitchen pantry in one corner of your kitchen with these jars will elevate the entire space. Just make sure all the containers are either in the same color tone, size, or shape. They should blend in together.

The next decor idea is an absolute must for an authentic farmhouse kitchen. This DIY will need a bit of help from someone who knows their way around a toolbox, but it is totally worth the extra work.

A natural wood kitchen island is an excellent addition to any farmhouse kitchen. It’s a great place to prepare meals, put those labeled jars we were talking about earlier, or place some decorations like indoor plants.

It’s extremely versatile!

Use recycled wood from a hardware store or your tool shed, a couple of corner brackets, and wood glue.

9. White vases

In a kitchen with wooden decor, a white vase stands out. Take a few flowers grown in your farmhouse and put them in the vase. Replace them every day for a new look.

Amaze your friends with your seemingly endless supply of beautiful fresh flowers and show off the wonderful plants grown in your farmhouse.

10. Hanging chalkboard or wallpaper

Every kitchen needs a shopping list and what’s better than hanging it front and center in your kitchen?

Put up wallpaper behind your door or next to your fridge as an accent decor piece. Then use colorful chalk to keep track of your shopping needs.

Alternatively, get a chalk stand to give your kitchen character. It might seem a bit like a sidewalk cafe but it’s fine. As long as you have a designated space for the board and the rest of your interior is the same color as the stand, it will fit in well.

Final Thoughts

Hopefully, you found a design you like and want to replicate. If not, you may have found something that inspired you to come up with a design idea. We’ve covered everything from practical DIYs like the chalkboard and pan hanger to simple design pieces like candles and paint.
