6 Overlooked Parts of Farmhouse Home Design


farmhouse interior design

Farmhouse design blends the simplicity of country life with the warmth of family memories and traditions. There are different methods to capturing that farmhouse look. Some designers focus on rustic

elements while others go for simple lines and a few cozy features. Some combine modern with traditional for a modern farmhouse look.

There may be as many as six different distinct styles in farmhouse design, including a western look and cottage farmhouse vibe. Your first step is figuring out which decorating approach speaks to you. Once you know the types of elements you prefer, don't overlook these six parts of farmhouse home design to really flesh out your home's style:

1. Scaled Furnishings

You might adore the look of the giant wooden kitchen table you see in photographs, but if the layout of your kitchen doesn't have space for a large piece of furniture, your home can look overwhelmed. Take into consideration the layout and size of your rooms when picking big elements. Is there a smaller version of the table or can you have one made? On the other hand, if you have big, vast rooms, you might want to upscale the sizing or add additional pieces. 

2. Floors and Walls

Replacing your flooring is likely one of the most expensive parts of a redesign. The average cost for hardwood flooring is $7.32 per square cubic foot. You may be able to restain old wood floors for only $2.75 per square cubic foot.
