The farmhouse design is one of the leading interior styles taking up most homes today.
It does not matter whether you live in a rural farmhouse or the city; this craze has taken over home designs and does not seem to end anytime soon.
The key to achieving a rustic farmhouse look is all about creating a comfortable, warm, and relaxing atmosphere.
Here are 12 tips on how you can choose the best rustic furniture to blend into your farmhouse look and feel.
1. Rustic inspired dining tables
A farmhouse is an open floor space where family and friends come together to have a quality and fun time together.
It thus makes sense to have a rustic-inspired dining table that can seat at least ten people. You may want to choose a dining table crafted with rustic wood to share meals with your friends and loved ones.
2. Pull up dining chairs
The beauty of designing a farmhouse is that you have the freedom to choose whatever style you want.
This means that if you are living in an urban space, you can select furniture that blends with the industrial look and feel of your space, and it will still fit in.
You may want to look into investing in rustic-inspired pull-up chairs to contribute to the comfort and charming look of your farmhouse design.
3. Wood table top coffee tables
A coffee table is an excellent addition to your farmhouse furniture since it can be placed at the center of your living space. A reclaimed wood tabletop can thus function as the epitome of your rustic farmhouse style.
4. Wire baskets
Wire baskets are a great way to decorate your farmhouse walls and add that rustic look. They can serve various functions and possibilities, such as placing flowers or other items.
5. Distressed Furniture
One of the centerpieces of any farmhouse is the old distressed furniture. They have so much beauty and character that appeals to the eye.
They can easily be sourced from an antique store, farm sales, or auctions. You can choose from the wide range of old distressed furniture and place them where they will attract attention in your farmhouse space.
It would be best if you aimed to collect rustic furniture or pieces with history, story and meaning so that they can blend with your farmhouse look.
For example, you may want to order an old treasure chest and use it to place items in your farmhouse space.
A creatively placed rustic furniture could prove to be the perfect finishing touch for your farmhouse-inspired design.
6. Slip-covered sofa
Since the essence of the farmhouse is comfort, you may want to look at investing in slip-covered sofas. One of the reasons is that they are easy to wash.
Furthermore, you can easily remove and change them with seasons to blend with your farmhouse design.
You may want to go with neutral colors, which you can throw pillows of different textures and colors, and they will match each other.
Having bench seating is a classic and welcoming gesture to your visitors. You can place it at an entryway where your guests can have a place to sit as they remove their shoes. A metal bench will suffice, and it also does not have to occupy much space.
8. Wooden Cabinet
A wooden cabinet will not only act as storage for your items but also adds plenty of rustic charm to your farmhouse. You may want to keep it open so you can show off your display of rustic treasures and collections.
9. Woven baskets and trays
You may want to add these rustic additions to your farmhouse furniture since they can be used for various functions such as serving meals or simply as placeholders for items such as flowers or cutlery.
10. Reclaimed wood stools
You may want to consider investing in adorable rustic reclaimed wood stools, which your guests can sit on, or where you can place some items in your homes, such as flowers and vases. In addition, they will fabulously add to your rustic décor.
11. Porch swing
If you have an expansive porch, you may want to install a porch swing that can accommodate two or three people as you enjoy warm weather.
12. Oversized clock
Placing an oversized wooden clock in a visible place in your farmhouse space will be a great addition to your farmhouse décor.
As well as reminding you and your guests about time, it also makes for a spectacular sight and can be an endless piece of antique beauty.
