How to Create the Farmhouse Look

A farmhouse-styled home has become very popular, especially in the midwest. Here are a few simple ways to achieve the rustic, stylish farmhouse style in your home.

Use neutral colors

Using neutral colors for a farmhouse look is easy. If your home currently has a pop of color, choose one color to keep and make the rest neutral tones like beige, tan, grey, or white. Window treatments make a statement in any room and Budget Blinds carries plenty of neutral options perfect for a farmhouse look.

Use shiplap on walls

Shiplap is a kind of wooden board used to construct rustic buildings. The boards have a groove cut on the top and bottom which allows the pieces to fit together. Shiplap has gained popularity thanks to HGTV’s Fixer Upper where Chip and Joanna Gaines seemed to use shiplap in every episode. This trend has become an iconic part of the classic farmhouse look.

Use distressed and vintage furniture

Distressed and vintage furniture makes the farmhouse look more noticeable. Either distress and paint furniture yourself or keep an eye out at garage sales and local discount furniture stores.

Use more wood

Budget Blinds’ wood window treatments are an easy way to add more wood to your decor. Our custom wood blinds are available in rustic finishes, perfect for a farmhouse. Other ideas include wooden tables, chairs, cabinets, or even something as simple as picture frames.
