The farmhouse kitchen style evokes country comfort, natural coziness and a warm, welcoming atmosphere. It is also often associated with the word “rustic” because of its raw, natural appeal and charm. Generally, farmhouse style kitchens are geared towards a “down home” theme. (See our gallery of farmhouse kitchen cabinets here). Natural materials are one of the primary elements of the Farmhouse style, with that in mind, Farmhouse kitchen cabinets are dominantly made up of quality hardwood like maple, cherry, oak and pine. Pine is a popular choice for farmhouse kitchen cabinets because its knotty appearance exudes a rustic vibe.
The primary consideration for kitchen cabinet interior shelves is the strength. These interior or inner shelves hold up a lot of weight from storing stacks of dinnerware, pots and pans or glassware. With such, they must be able to stand up to the weight and wear and tear of daily use. The minimum thickness for cabinet shelving is ½ inches, but ¾ inches is more preferred. The depth of the cabinet shelving may either be full or half, but the former is more advisable since it allows you to maximize your kitchen cabinets storage capacity.
