What Is the Farmhouse Style?

When you live in the suburbs with neighbors close by and the hustle and bustle of the city not too far away, it can feel like you’re the furthest away from where you want to be: the farmhouse. Ah yes, the farmhouse style — fresh air … lots and lots of land… laid back … that trademark feeling of comfort and coziness.

And that’s just while you’re standing on the front porch! 

Not all of us are lucky enough to live on such a thin slice of heaven. But what if we were to tell you that you’re not as far away as you might think? The farmhouse style you’ve grown to love can be recreated in any house — regardless of where you live and what kind of design you feel like you’re stuck in right now.

How to achieve the farmhouse style

The farmhouse style has been around for centuries, starting, of course, with the actual farmhouses lived in by the earliest U.S. settlers. These humble abodes were simple, located on agricultural (or rural) land, and built out of necessity. And the individuals and families who lived in them either owned or worked on the adjoining farm.

Since those early days, homeowners far and wide have wanted to achieve the same farmhouse style — even if they live in the city, suburbs, or on the ranch. The style is characterized by the following:

  • Neutral color palette (grays, whites, aqua, yellows)
  • Unfinished, stripped, or natural wood pieces
  • Antique furniture
  • Wall accent pieces and knickknacks  
  • Practical and functional living spaces
  • Laid-back, comfortable, and inviting atmosphere
  • Exposed beams, hardwood floors, and pillars

Once you perfect your farmhouse style, get the windmill ceiling fan to match.

Once you have the perfect farmhouse style for your space, the last thing you want is for the ceiling fan(s) not to match. Unfortunately, most fans on store shelves might keep you cool in the summer, but they aren’t going to match whatever look you’re going for at home. This is where The Original Windmill Ceiling Fan Company can help.

Farmhouse, Western, Rustic, and Modern Farmhouse designs are just a few of the top finishes our customers ask about when customizing the perfect windmill fan. And the possibilities are literally endless.
