Design tips for decorating a farmhouse style bedroom

Here’s how to achieve the farmhouse aesthetic room of your dreams.

What’s the best way to design and decorate a farmhouse bedroom?

Whether you are designing for yourself or someone else, bedrooms should be cozy and comfortable, providing a space to unwind, recharge, and escape the chaos of the world. Even if your typical design style is more maximalist, bedrooms usually lean more minimalist to offer a serene backdrop for a good night’s sleep. Bedroom layouts are also more simple. The square footage of your bedroom and size of your bed frame will typically dictate the best layout.

Whether you're in the process of a bedroom remodel or looking to makeover your existing one, these are the key elements to include in your design:|

  • Paint or Wallpaper: Bedroom walls set the mood for the space. Select a color or pattern that complements the farmhouse style you want to achieve. We are partial to covering walls, ceilings, and trim in a uniform paint color to create a cohesive look. Or consider an accent wall to serve as a focal point.
  • Bed: The bed is the centerpiece and typical focal point of any bedroom, providing a comfortable and restful place to sleep. It typically includes a mattress, bed frame, and headboard. Your farmhouse style can really shine by selecting bedding (sheets, duvet covers, and pillows) that match the aesthetic.
  • Nightstands: Nightstands (or bedside tables) are small tables or cabinets placed on either side of the bed. They provide a convenient surface for placing bedside lamps, alarm clocks, books, and other personal items. Pro tip: Bedside tables should be placed 2-4 inches from the bed frame and no more than 24 inches deep (any deeper and it can be pretty uncomfortable to get in and out of bed). If you choose to add a table lamp or a sconce, keep in mind the depth of the light to ensure you have enough space on the bedside table.
  • Area Rug: It’s common to include an area rug in a bedroom for extra warmth and coziness. There are three common layout options for rugs in the bedroom. Option 1, place the bed and nightstands entirely on the rug. Option 2, place ⅔ of the bed on the rug, with 24 inches extending beyond the sides of the bed. Option 3, place two runners along each side of the bed (the runners should be wider than the bedside tables, if possible).
  • Decorative Lighting: Combine task, ambient, and accent lighting for a layered lighting scheme. Typically in a bedroom, you’d want a flush surface mount or chandelier on the ceiling and wall-mounted sconces or table lamps on each side of the bed. Consider the placement of lighting fixtures to eliminate shadows and evenly light the space. Dimmer switches can adjust the mood.
  • Curtains or Blinds: In bedrooms, window treatments are not just design statements. They help promote a restful sleep environment, while also adding a layer of privacy and warmth. Opting for blackout or heavy, lined curtains can enhance these effects, making them perfect for ensuring comfort and tranquility. Don’t forget a curtain rod!
  • Farmhouse Bedroom Decor: From accent pillows and throw blankets to bedside table lamps and wall art, bedroom accessories should be both functional and decorative. Coordinate the color and pattern with the overall bedroom color scheme and farmhouse style to bring your design vision to life.

What materials and home decor should I use to achieve a farmhouse bedroom design?

These days, it feels like farmhouse interior design is everywhere—from our Instagram feeds to our TV screens (thanks, Joanna Gaines). Farmhouse design blends rustic charm with modern comfort and conjures a warm, welcoming feel, reminiscent of a country home (even if you don’t live in the country). To achieve a farmhouse aesthetic in your bedroom, focus on creating a cozy, family-friendly atmosphere.

Farmhouse design typically features exposed wooden beams, wide-plank floors, and a palette of warm neutrals complemented by soft, pastel accents. While farmhouse style tends to embrace a more neutral color scheme, the addition of prints and patterns can infuse warmth, texture, and personality into the space. Commonly, plaid, gingham, stripes, and even floral wallpapers find their way into farmhouse interiors, offering a charming contrast to the subdued tones.

Common decor elements include barn doors, shiplap paneling, apron-front sinks, and vintage accessories (think: mason jars, woven baskets, wood cutting boards, or ceramic mixing bowls). Comfortable, overstuffed furniture with durable fabrics, such as cotton and linen, invites relaxation, while galvanized metal and distressed or reclaimed wood adds to the rustic farmhouse aesthetic.
