What Makes a Nightstand Farmhouse Anyway?
Farmhouse decor is inspired by the simple design of country-style furniture pieces and the distressed look of well-worn, well-loved items. Farmhouse nightstands are typically crafted out of good old-fashioned hardwood or reclaimed wood that’s full of personality. A farmhouse style furniture piece is rarely made out of particle board, and many craftsmen would argue that you can’t consider something farmhouse style if it’s made out of such materials.
Farmhouse furniture typically takes on a square shape, with very few ornate or intricate details. If there are decorative details, they’re generally very subtle, are usually put in place for structural purposes. Farmhouse furniture is almost always crafted out of wood, and you’ll rarely see metal or aluminum options.
Square, Hardwood Designs
Farmhouse nightstands are generally square in shape and feature angled wood details. Most options are crafted out of hardwood, making the overall piece feel structurally sound while making a statement at the same time.
Farmhouse nightstands always serve a functional purpose, usually featuring drawers and cabinets. You won’t find a minimalist farmhouse nightstand that doesn’t offer at least some functional storage.
Simple Industrial Hardware
As for hardware details, farmhouse nightstands feature industrial, sturdy drawer handles that add to the overall quality of the nightstand.
