Home Decor Series: Farmhouse
This week in our home design series, we continue with a look into the ever-popular farmhouse style. This style has retained a high level of popularity throughout the years because it evokes feelings of warmth, comfort, and overall relaxation. The traditional farmhouse style has gradually evolved into a modern look. While it retains many of the key features that provide relaxation, it brings new modern touches that make a room feel both stylish and comfortable.
Today’s farmhouse style often combines the fresh look of simple features with natural wood accents. Popular features include white walls with white or gray shiplap, along with overhead wooden roof beams. The lighter colors reflect the light, making a room feel clean and spacious while tying in the natural elements of wood. White-wash brick and other textures found in decor pieces like baskets, light fixtures, and fireplace fixtures create feelings of warmth and comfort.
One of the main areas of a room that make an impactful statement about one’s favored style is the flooring. Whether a farmhouse style is desired in one room or throughout the home, flooring options are abundant. You can find any style for kitchens, foyers, living areas, bedrooms, bathrooms, and even laundry rooms.
Both hardwood and laminate flooring are ideal choices to incorporate into a farmhouse style decor. Vinyl plank flooring is another great option as well. Of course, hardwood flooring lends itself very well to the farmhouse style and is available in many colors and styles. The most popular include ranges of grays, natural hickory, oak, and several other wood types. Vinyl works well in high traffic areas and moisture-prone spots. This flooring works well in bathrooms, laundry rooms, and foyers. You’ll find a variety of colors and styles that mimic real wood.
Between the natural elements provided by wood, natural fiber rugs, brick, copper, and iron fixtures, it’s no wonder this is a sought-after style. At Edward’s Carpet, we have various flooring options to help create the perfect farmhouse look you want. As a result, we carry a variety of brands and styles to meet our client’s needs.
