What Makes A Bed Farmhouse Anyways?
Farmhouse design is inspired by traditional country-style decor and the rustic feel of distressed, well-worn wood. While other more modern interior design styles appreciate sharp lines and metal construction, farmhouse style design is more concerned with naturally worn wood and simple rustic hardware.
Farmhouse-style design appreciates good old fashion hardwood. You won’t find particle board here! Often times farmhouse beds will be crafted out of large, chunky pieces of wood, but pallet wood is certainly utilized as well.
Tall, Prominent Headboard
Farmhouse beds typically feature a strong, tall headboard that isn’t especially ornate or decorative. You may see X-cross and planked designs in farmhouse headboards, while some can feature shelving units for additional storage.
Any good farmhouse style home decor piece will feature at least a bit of a distressed finish. This really differs from piece-to-piece but in general, some distressed details make a piece of furniture feel rustic and weathered.
