Do you love the outdoors? The farmhouse style is trending in the fashion world, and it can be an incredible option for homeowners. We have some thoughts on the topic, so here are six design ideas for a farmhouse-style home.
Using wood, or repurposed ceiling beams to create tables, kitchen islands, and shelves will create a rustic vibe that will echo through the entire house. Reusing rock or brick is another good option.
Opening the ceiling up to see the beams really gives off an old-timer look. To further push this idea, you can hang pots, pans, and utensils from the beams. Unless of course, the ceiling is too high. This idea is perfect for a low ceiling in a ranch-style abode.
A Barn Aesthetic
Painting items white with slats is a great way to give off a barn aesthetic. You can put “Z” slats on cabinets, doors, and tables to give it a “barn door” effect. Personally, I love the look of this style. It is a great option for any rustic interior.
Try Out a Deep Sink
A deep sink can add so much efficiency to your home, especially if you prepare your food at home on a regular basis. It also adds a nice touch to the overall “farmhouse” design. Deep sinks are common in stables and barns, but the right one in the right style can really make the rustic theme pop. Martha Stewart once said, “a big sink is so much more effective.”
This cabinet style will allow easy access to the necessary cooking utensils at all times. The great thing about these is that you can be extremely creative with open-style cabinets. They might not be the best option if you have small children.
Peach Crate Bookshelf
I recently saw this design on a blog and just had to share it. If you take peach crates and stack them on top of each other it creates a beautiful bookcase. It provides a good amount of space and really pushes the barn theme.
Designing the farmhouse can be really fun, so get creative with it! Be sure to talk to your interior design team about other options when it comes to this style specifically.
