2. Sliding Barn Doors

Not only do barn doors add the perfect farmhouse look to a home, but they’re also a great alternative to a traditional door if you’re limited on square footage. These rustic, dark wood barn doors make a big design statement and help make the primary bathroom feel like an extension of the primary bedroom.

3. Shiplap Accent

Shiplap isn’t just for walls. If you love the idea shiplap, but don’t want to maintain and clean an entire wall of it, you can add it in small doses. We love this shiplap kitchen island that’s the perfect nod to farmhouse style.

5. Farmhouse Sink

A farmhouse sink, or apron front sink as you may know it, can be found in any style of home, but like its name states, it’s most common in homes with farmhouse interior design. This sink has a front side in lieu of fake cabinet drawers and can be made from several different materials and colors to seamlessly fit your home’s style.

Storage is always a tough topic for any homeowner. Why? Because you either don’t have enough storage, or what you do have isn’t the most glamorous part of your home. But, not anymore! Combining rustic elements with a clean and sleek storage design creates the ultimate mudroom.
