  • Use with Wire Baskets – a farmhouse staple and they look great on shelves, a top of cabinets, and even placed on the floor.
  • Incorporate Wood – lots of wood texture looks excellent for farmhouse style. Rustic, white shiplap, and even light wood all work.
  • Farmhouse Light Fixtures – an easy start to achieving a farmhouse-style bedroom is starting with the right light fixture and farmhouse light fixtures are easy to find and are available in hundreds of styles on sites like Amazon, Wayfair, and Overstock.
  • Paint Old Furniture – a cost-effective way to achieve a farmhouse-style bedroom or home is to paint old furniture that you already have. Use light/neutral colors.
