Simplicity in Home Design
A farm style home combines simple details with elegant amenities such as covered porches and hanging lights. This type of home design is very welcoming and relaxing, and is different than contrasting styles that most people look for in a home these days. There are many different kinds of farm home decors to choose from, so we help break them down for you.
From lantern lighting to open shelves on the walls, a farm style home features many out of the ordinary fixtures and accessories. Some examples are:
- A large head-board for your bed.
- Signs with quotes to hang around the home
- An endless supply of blankets
- Wooden kitchenware
Typically, in a farm style home, the kitchen serves as the main centerpiece and entertaining area. An apron-front sink and sturdy countertops are popular options for the farm style home, as are an abundance of custom cabinetry.
Adding Some Color
When choosing a farm style home, make sure to use very light colors and textures around the home. Simple and light colors have become a staple within farm style homes because of their rich contrast to darker colors which take away from the bright atmosphere a farm style home offers. Wood floors act as the perfect complement to your new light and bright walls.
