They also were craving more light, a few dollops of color, interesting patinas and an updated design with nods to vintage style. So they looked up local design pros on Houzz and found Thomas Hayes of design-build firm HwRenewal. Their home is a Craftsman-inspired newer build. At 350 square feet, the kitchen gave Hayes plenty of room to work with for the full renovation. He designed a classic U-shaped kitchen with a large open island in the middle, focusing on making it symmetrical and concentrating the storage in key areas instead of covering every wall with upper cabinets. Modern Farmhouse Style“We always start with Houzz ideabooks during the inspiration phase. That way we can sync up our ideas and communicate with captions,” Hayes says. He found out that the homeowners were drawn to modern farmhouse style and a mix of old and new. Together they came up with a balance of rustic, vintage-inspired and new elements. The modern farmhouse elements in the room include Shaker-style cabinetry, unfussy light fixtures, vintage-inspired tile and custom wood touches on the ceiling beams, vent hood, open shelves and island. The rustic wood’s patina gives a sense of warmth and age to the room; almost all the wood was reclaimed from 100-year-old heart pine barn beams. Find a local design-build firm on Houzz

Rustic table base with quartz top. I also like the Starbucks look of same table with black iron base. This table is actually counter height so that it can be used as an additional prep counter. I would like that kind of table at regular 30 inch height, if it wasn’t too expensive.
