Style inspiration: Farmhouse interiors

When you hear the words “farmhouse style,” do you think of the exterior of a home? If so, you’re not unlike most homebuyers, because typically, the term ‘farmhouse’ is used to describe an exterior style. That said, it doesn’t have to be limited to your shutter styles, siding, or exterior paint colors! Farmhouse is a look and style that you can incorporate inside your home too, in a wide variety of ways, and today we’re exploring some of those ways in the hopes it inspires you to add a farmhouse touch to your space.

For starters, there are tons of opportunities to incorporate a more farmhouse style look into your kitchen — here are just a few ideas to get your wheels turning!

Farmhouse sinks:

This large, unadorned, incredibly useful sinks are hugely popular, and for good reason. They create a farmhouse look while also being very functional and beautiful as well. They’re extra deep and spacious compared to a typical sink, and bring a touch of style that’s understated and very simple.

Kitchen island:

Using wood features, a butcher block top, or clean farmhouse paint colors with farmhouse fixtures on your island is a great way to bring this style into the space, provided the rest of your kitchen area reflects a similar look and feel.

This material is especially striking on ceilings and can add a level of visual interest you may not have considered. It’s a great way to create a laid-back farmhouse vibe without going too crazy with it!

Rustic touches:

You can create a farmhouse look with simple, subtle additions to your decor. By choosing laid-back farmhouse furniture, paints in farmhouse hues like off-white and barn red, and rustic style fixtures and rugs, you can add a touch of farmhouse style to your living areas without breaking the bank.
