Farmhouse Style in the Dining Room

Farmhouse style is classic and cozy, exudes warmth, and gives your home a welcoming charm. But what defines farmhouse style design and how do you implement it in your dining room?

Key Characteristics of Farmhouse Decor Style

Classic, elegant and comfortable, the farmhouse style of decorating is all about keeping things simple and organic. Farmhouse-style homes aim to look collected over time and rooms are very approachable and comfortable. It’s also versatile and family-friendly. 

Learning about the characteristics of farmhouse style while picking up a few tips on blending older elements with new designs will help you use this welcoming look in your dining room.

Focus on Practicality

One of the most dominant elements of farmhouse style is practicality. Both furnishings and accessories should be comfortable and serve a purpose. They should welcome you into the space, and pieces should be able to be used and enjoyed regularly.

Unlike traditional furniture which features ornate detailing, the form of farmhouse furniture tends to be simple, with more focus on functionality than decoration. With an emphasis on a clean, inviting atmosphere, the farmhouse style is defined by simplicity and some callbacks to years and styles gone by. In that way, it creates a timeless look.

Natural Elements

Natural elements come in an endless variety of items. Natural objects that are small and subtle can be placed practically anywhere across your home. Wood is the main natural feature of the American farmhouse style, and larger furniture pieces are also a great way to add natural texture and warm tones to your home.

Decorative items that have been crafted from natural fibers like jute and linen are a great way to bring nature into your homes. Additional examples of natural elements include distressed wood, cotton, wicker, and natural stone.

Neutral Color Palette

Neutral color palettes make the room appear fresh, inviting, and open. Cool and warm tones like cream, silver, beige, brown, and gray work well in balancing the natural elements. Some colors may be employed, but it is generally muted colors. Besides being ideal for a farmhouse style, sticking to an overall neutral palette is always a great strategy to create a design you’ll not get tired of in the long run.

Patterns should be kept simple but can bring depth into the neutral palette with a variety of textures. Textures are important to keep a space from looking boring and flat. Multiple finishes of wood also tend to add texture to farmhouse-styled spaces.

Rustic Finishes

An element you will commonly see among the features of farmhouse decor is rustic finishes. This includes furniture made from distressed wood with plenty of texture, or even charming reclaimed hardwood. These rustic finishes aren’t just reserved for the furniture, however. The ideal farmhouse will have rustic, exposed finishes in the architecture as well such as exposed brick or shiplap. 

Whether you go for a traditional farmhouse or a modern farmhouse style, rustic finishes add charming character. From weathered wood to exposed brickwork, distressed finishes immediately add character to any surface. Reclaimed Barnwood Rustic Finishes

Differences Between Classic Farmhouse Versus Modern Farmhouse

Classic Farmhouse

This beloved style goes back to early American history when settlers wanted to create homes that were practical and simplified. In the early days, there was an abundance of wood – making it a natural choice as a building material. As the years passed by, the timeless farmhouse style has held on to our hearts with a nostalgic charm that brings with it undeniable comfort and simplicity. 

Classic farmhouse style is warm and inviting with an emphasis on earthy tones, ages textures, and sturdy materials. Additionally, you can use vintage lighting to enhance the character of this style.

Characteristics of Classic Farmhouse:

  • Natural or reclaimed wood accents
  • Vintage furniture and accessories
  • A mix of woods and whites
  • Reclaimed architectural pieces
  • Vintage-inspired lighting
  • Traditional fabrics and window treatments

Modern Farmhouse

Classic farmhouse design has stood the test of time and evolved into today's modern farmhouse style, which is welcoming, comfortable, and timelessly fresh.

Modern farmhouse is fusing contemporary and farmhouse styles together. There is more planning than the traditional farmhouse, but more warmth and décor than modern. Modern farmhouse design takes the relaxed farmhouse style and adds clean touches such as smooth lines and neutral color schemes. It is oftentimes less rustic, more sophisticated, and uses contemporary design elements like sleek lighting. 

Characteristics of Modern Farmhouse:

  • Statement furniture pieces
  • Bright white walls and interior
  • Leather upholstery
  • Contrast in decor
  • Variety of natural materials
  • Unique lighting

Whether you prefer a modern farmhouse look with sleek furniture and a moody color palette or bright and airy white countryside themes, this style is something you can build over time or create all at once.

Why We Like Amish-Made, Solid Wood Farmhouse Dining Table Sets

farmhouse-style dining collection can help complete the look of your kitchen or dining room. When choosing a solid-wood dining table there’re many different things to consider, from what type of wood to choose, to the finish you should apply.

Furniture, especially, handcrafted dining tables made from solid wood have an aesthetic appeal that seems to be lacking in furniture made from composite or engineered wood. The structural integrity of solid wood is reflected in its hardness and sturdiness that make it valuable and most sought-after for manufacturing dining tables. At Countryside Amish Furniture, we take pride in developing furniture using only premium quality, kiln-dried solid wood that is handcrafted to perfection by our expert Amish craftsmen.
