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. Easter lilies and dogwood flowers are good choices for the holiday because of their Easter symbolism.
- Open floating shelves in the bathroom and kitchen are very popular forms of shelving in Farmhouse decor.
- Farmhouse style is the prefect mix of old and new. Try baking a traditional Easter bread like hot cross buns (which has its own national day), and displaying them on a vintage cake stand.
