A farmhouse kitchen is a kitchen room designed for food preparation, dining and a sociable space. Typical of poorer farmhouses throughout the Middle Ages where rooms were limited, wealthier households would separate the smoke of the kitchen from the dining and entertaining areas. Farmhouse kitchens were also known as smoke kitchens before extractor hoods. Extractor hoods and modern stoves have allowed the reintroduction of farmhouse kitchen to architecture it is now the most popular kitchen design with various island set ups used for dining and storage.[1] Household kitchen design often assumes that the functionality of the room includes cooking, dining and socializing but the term 'kitchen' includes rooms dedicated to cooking.[2]
