What is Farmhouse Decor?
To give your home the look of farmhouse decorating means to use items that are warm, cozy and relaxing. Farmhouse decor is full of charm and character.
The style used to refer to an older style of decorating but with the popularity of TV shows such as Fixer Upper and others, farmhouse decor is now surprisingly trendy and used by savvy decorators.

10 Tips for adding a Farmhouse look to your home
It is not enough to just have “old” furnishings in a home. To get just right look, you’ll need to incorporate some specific types of home decorating ideas.
- To make sure that your farmhouse decor is “in” right now, be sure to have a balance of old and new styles. If you choose only antiques, the look will be dated.
- Choose farmhouse colors when you paint. Colors such as light grays, whites and light blue, paired with white trim and moldings will give you the look you want.
- Use mosaic tiles in bathrooms and vanity areas. They have a retro look that says farmhouse to visitors.
- Nothing says “farmhouse” quite like a sliding barn door. It is rustic, saves space in the room and barn doors are very in right now. See how to make a sliding barn door yourself in this post.
- Farmhouse signs and wall art add a rustic look for very little cost. If you can’t afford to go all out with furniture, consider adding some wall pieces for a cost-effective alternative.
- Wicker baskets are very inexpensive and make a great source of storage while adding decor appeal at the same time.
- Shiplap accents on the wall or over a mantle are all the rage in Farmhouse decorations.
- Change out some lighting fixtures. Pendant style, rustic light fixtures give a farmhouse look over any table.
- Add fresh flowers, foliage stems and other greenery in clear vases to add some farm style appeal to a mantle.
- Open floating shelves in the bathroom and kitchen are very popular forms of shelving in Farmhouse decor.
