Does your home need some sprucing up? Have you always wanted that country chic vibe? Or been inspired by Joanna Gaines’ designs?
Then you have come to the perfect place. Learn how to remodel your home into a modern farmhouse.
The first step to getting your home to look like a country dream is to renovate a focal part of your home by adding a shiplap wall. Shiplap is a unique style of interlocking and overlapping boards that give the home a farmhouse feel. Be sure to paint it white to make the home look open and airy. That will be your statement piece and will give you all the country vibes.
Your next step will be to add some distressed woods and a whitewashed palette. You can renovate old hardwood floors by adding distressed white paint. You can also add furniture pieces throughout the home that highlight the whitewashed palette. Also be sure to paint most walls white to give it that clean farmhouse look.
An essential step is to add a sliding barn door to any room. Whichever room you plan on renovating, make sure you opt for a sliding barn door over a traditional door. Choose a fun color like forest green, teal, or salmon. It will give you the perfect country entrance.
Don’t forget to add the details! Things like framed chalkboards, vintage clocks and signs, and family photos will be the perfect addition to your country d
écor. Most importantly, add plenty of vases and fresh flowers with white and green hues to add life and color to your home. After all, a farmhouse needs to have natural elements as well.
Lastly, it is important to throw in some industrial elements. If you are renovating your kitchen, for example, you can add black hardware to cabinets. You may also consider adding black piping to shelves. You might even add a vintage bike on a wall as décor. Another way to incorporate the industrial feel is to upgrade to an iron-crafted chandelier with Edison lights. The industrial elements will add the “modern” to your modern farmhouse style.
So if you’re ready to upgrade your home to a country chic style, be sure to follow these steps and add your unique taste.
