Talking about farmhouse architecture design, rustic and vintage things are easily popped into our minds. Something Mediterranean or something old and antique will also do. But in fact, farmhouse architecture doesn’t have any official definition. It highly depends on our vision, instinct, and taste to create the look.

Farmhouse design isn’t merely a look; it’s also a feeling. The architecture combines the best of modern and old fashioned looks. You can actually remodel old farmhouses to modern livings, or you can build the farmhouse home from scratch.

Although there are no definitive explanation of what makes a farmhouse style home, there are five distinct elements of the farmhouse design. Check them out:

1) Pretty Large Openings

Traditional farmhouses architecture have oversized openings that designed to accommodate swarming people to get in and out of the home. Windows tend to be larger too, to keep an eye on the farm from the inside of the house. Modern farmhouse style homes share this feature. To allow the house to flow, you can break down barriers between indoor and outdoor space. These openings will provide fresh, flowing air too.

2) Light Walls

Originally, farmhouses are designed to be constructed quickly and efficiently. Farmers didn’t have much time to build a house, because they have livestock to watch and veggies to grow. They rarely use colored paints and wallpapers, and prefer natural or whitewashed wood instead. Modern farmhouses homes tend to be light, usually a white or off-white color. Use hardwood floors to complement this look.

3) Lots of Woodworks

The ultimate characteristic of a farmhouse design is natural-looking woodwork. In addition to hardwood flooring (vanished or lightly stained), you can add exposed beam ceilings and light interior walls. Don’t forget to add some wooden furnishing to make up the look.

4) Open Kitchen

Typical farmhouses have big open kitchens for easier movements. You should have a center island, and racks of pots and pans hanging over it. Wooden countertops would be more farmhouse than their marble counterparts, but granite is also appropriate. You can mix some glass fronted cabinets, wooden cabinets, and open shelves to get that old fashioned, eclectic farmhouse look. Add some open shelves to place some plants and herbs in small pots.

5) Wide Covered Porch

Farmhouses have large, covered porch as traditionally, lots of farmhouse living was done outside. It should be large enough for several people to sit comfortably on, while being able to see each other well. The roof allow the porch to be enjoyed even on rainy days.
