Farmhouse plans like THD-5300 (above) are some of the best-selling designs on the market. Customers can’t seem to get enough of them! Known for their simple and rustic designs, these homes attract attention with welcoming front porches and open, informal spaces. It’s no wonder why these plans are customer favorites.

THD-5300 really has it all. While there is so much to love with this home, we’d like you to focus on the kitchen for now. Notice the amazing island that captures your eye right from the beginning. Large islands are a great way to showcase seasonal decorations, and they also make great buffets for parties or family gatherings. And the perfect island can be enhanced by the right countertop choice… keep scrolling to see what we chose for this lovely design!

Another thing to think about when maximizing your kitchen space is storage. From cabinetry to counter space, and even closets and walk-in pantries, ample storage changes the game. Recent trends emphasize minimalist design and farmhouse plans especially focus on simple and straightforward spaces. So, instead of having a bunch of appliances and dishes out in the open, think about adding closed storage. We love the pantry cabinets in this plan!
