One of the most popular styles in decorating magazines and on home improvement shows today is the farmhouse chic. While this style is not for everyone or suitable for every type of house, it does go well with many types of bathroom vanities and cabinets available at the Cabinet Factory Outlet. Some may think that “farmhouse” means taking a bunch of reclaimed wood from a barn and carving out bathroom furniture, but the truth is that small elements and accessories made from rustic materials will work better in this decorative situation than larger pieces.
There are many ways to customize the look and feel of your Dartmouth bathroom remodeling project to get the farmhouse style. One way is by upgrading solid maple bathroom vanities with farmhouse chic hardware for cabinets and drawers. Antique or at least antique-looking drawer pulls, door knobs, and handles can be added to create custom results that will draw attention and help to pull together your primary theme. If the sound of farmhouse chic is appealing to you, start collecting ideas and then come to our showroom to see our bathroom vanities and cabinets in person to determine which style works best for you.
What Type of Farmhouse Style Do You Prefer?
There are a couple of different sub-styles that fall underneath the overall farmhouse style that everyone is raving about today. Farmhouse chic is also sometimes known as shabby chic, which has been trending for a few years now. It is a very contemporary style which allows for an eclectic approach to farmhouse design, incorporating floral prints, textures, and clean lines. Country-style farmhouse and rustic-style farmhouse are two other ways to go if you want to take the design a little further away from the clean lines and upscale options found in the more modern take on farmhouse styles. These styles incorporate vintage pieces and reclaimed materials to create unique and one-of-a-kind results.
When it comes to bathroom design, the farmhouse chic style is by far the easiest to incorporate. If the rest of your home features elements that are more on the edge of country-style or rustic-style farmhouse, a bathroom remodeling project that incorporates an upscale, yet simple farmhouse chic style will be very complimentary. It is a great way to create a cohesive approach to decor without overwhelming every room with heavy designs. Our Trenton Bathroom Vanity or our Wheaton Bathroom Vanity styles and custom hardware for cabinets and drawers would work best for this type of Dartmouth bathroom remodeling project.
Common Elements of Farmhouse Design
After you have chosen the best bathroom vanities and cabinets for your new bathroom, the next step is to start searching for design elements that help to create the look and feel that you want to convey. Start by looking for the perfect mirror to go over the top of your bathroom vanities and cabinets, such as a simple wood frame horizontal mirror or a round mirror with a textured border. Wall art can include interesting objects, such as wicker baskets, floating shelves, plants in farmhouse style containers, and ladder shelves to stow towels and other toiletries. Just be careful to avoid adding too much in the way of design elements. The goal is to highlight your brand new solid maple bathroom vanities and create a clean space that will be a joy to use on a daily basis.
Flooring is another area that you will want to pay attention to when trying to get the farmhouse style in your home. The flooring color and material used is important. Some of the most common styles include large wood or tile planks. If light colored bathroom vanities and cabinets are used, a darker flooring is recommended. If darker vanities are chosen for your Dartmouth bathroom remodeling project, then a lighter colored floor is suggested. Consider coordinating your flooring materials with your choices for accessories, mirror, lighting, and fixtures. Beadboard is a common choice for adding texture to walls, as is reclaimed wood or siding. However, a basic coordinating color for paint combined with a vintage style wallpaper is also a very classic choice.
