Farmhouse decor is incredibly popular today, but achieving the right vibe can be tricky. You have to be careful not to pick up something too dingy-looking at a flea market, as it can age your space. It can also be tough to find new items in stores that don’t look inauthentic. To achieve your vision for a perfect farmhouse vibe, here are some tips:
When keeping your eye out for elements to add to your space, have an idea of a place you’d like to emulate. Is it the wild west? A dairy farm? Keep the knickknacks you accumulate on theme, looking like you’d actually find them all in the same place, rather than collected from different locations over time.
If you don’t have any exposed wood throughout your house, add a distressed wood side table, armoire, desk or bookshelf. You can find these pieces in stores or you can create your own effect if you prefer DIY. Creating pieces with reclaimed wood can also be a fun project and you’ll have something you can be proud of for years to come.
Adding natural elements is an easy trick that many interior designers and house stagers always use to tie a space together. It can be as simple as collecting branches from a tree or bush and putting them into a mason jar. Other natural elements could also be animal hide or leathers. It’s a small detail, but it can do a lot to contribute to your overall look.
Sliding Barn House Doors
This feature can be more time consuming and costly to install, but sliding barn house doors have been hugely popular in recent years. They add the final farmhouse flair you desire, and they are an interesting way to freshen up a space. Instead of the traditional doors you’re used to, you can add a single barn house door to your bedroom or double doors to your closet. As long as you have enough wall space, consider getting one of these installed. The England Furniture piece featured in this photo is the Lynette Chair 6204AL.
