Old world charm and a farmhouse feel can be a nice feature you decide to incorporate within your new custom home.
There are always new trends when it comes to room designs within your home, but some farmhouse favorites always seem to be on the top of the list.
If you like the farmhouse feel, here are a few items to consider adding to the design of your home:
- Apron front / Farm sinks
Farm house sinks, originally made of porcelain and heat baked clay were designed for function and ease as kitchen responsibilities were a long daily routine. Today, we see the comeback of the farmhouse sink design and many families are choosing this option, which incorporates function and design. These sinks are available in many materials including concrete, stainless steel, fireclay and copper. The fronts of these sinks also have many options available if you are looking to add artistic design within your kitchen.
- Interior brick accents
Adding brick within your home always adds a warm feeling within any room. A custom brick entry, or brick flooring within a hall, bathroom or kitchen area create the perfect ambiance for your farmhouse plan.
- Rugged hardwood floors, Rustic beams & Solid timber mantels
Hardwood floors have been around for centuries and including a distressed hardwood floor within your new custom home can bring about a sense of the old charm with a modern twist. The same goes for rustic beams and Solid timber mantels. Whether you are using a newly timbered beam or rare, rustic, reclaimed barn wood you are sure to find the perfect fit within your living space.
- Tongue and groove wood plank ceilings
Using this application on your ceiling will give a nice gathered feeling as you engage in everyday living. With all of the paint and stain colors available, you may choose to use a classic white paint or choose a stain to truly compliment the type of wood used in your installation. A few of the wood selections you may want to consider include white oak, red oak, walnut, cherry or maple.
As you explore all of the possibilities and creative design ideas you may consider for your new custom home, be sure to discuss these with your builder so you are able to enjoy the home you want with all of the unique features you love. Budgeting for customized additions within your home is a great way to plan and be prepared for building the custom farmhouse of your dreams!
