Magnolia-Style Kitchens: Capturing the Essence of Waco in Your Cooking Space
If you know Joanne Gaines, you are likely aware of her Magnolia brand and aesthetic.
Her Magnolia-style kitchens are all the rage, bringing a rustic, timeless look to kitchens around the country. More and more people are styling their spaces with inspiration from Joanna and Waco, TX.
If you are a fan of the Magnolia style, and contemplating what your next home remodeling project might look like, we’ve put together a handy guide to bring the popular Waco look into your kitchen.
Neutral Colors & Materials
Many Magnolia-style kitchens feature neutral colors like white, cream, beige, or light gray. These colors create a sense of openness, making the kitchen feel more comfortable. In addition, neutral materials like wood, stone, and metal contribute to a Magnolia-style kitchen's warm, rustic feel.
A farmhouse sink or apron-front sink are popular choices for this kitchen style. They have a distinctive exposed front and help create a charming, country-inspired vibe.
Open Shelves and Simple Cabinets
Choosing open shelves or simple cabinets helps with your kitchen's warm, inviting feel. They allow for storage and display of your kitchen items. If you choose the simple cabinets, choose shaker style or flat panel cabinet doors that are white or light colored.
For a simple but elegant backsplash, choose subway tiles in white or other light colors. They are timeless and versatile, which complements a neutral color scheme.
Open Floor Plan
When designing your Magnolia-style kitchen, be sure to keep it as an open floor plan. These floor plans allow for seamless transitions between your kitchen, dining areas, and living areas. It also helps create a sense of togetherness, even if your family is spread out.
Statement Lighting and Accents
Magnolia-style kitchens feature rustic or antique fixtures and accents. Unique and eye-catching light fixtures can help your kitchen make a statement while providing cozy lighting. Your rustic accents have a weathered, antique look, which adds character to your kitchen. You can find a nice piece to use as your kitchen’s focal point.
Splash of Green
After decorating your kitchen with fun accent pieces, you can add a splash of green in the form of plants, herbs, or flowers. Spider plants are easy to maintain, along with succulents to bring a touch of the outdoors indoors.
