715 Farmhouse Home Ideas
Farmhouses were traditionally houses that were close to a farm, providing a humble home for a large family working on the land. Quintessentially the American home, Farmhouses and their architectural and design elements have gone from being a rural interpretation to a mainstream design preference.
Whether original home or new build, features of the Farmhouse design are simple, modest and without excessive ornamentation. Comfortable porches, clapboard siding, metal or wooden gable roofs, lots of windows, barn doors, gooseneck barn lights – these all evoke a feeling of nostalgia that is rooted in a longing for home.
