The farmhouse-style decor has been around for a long time, but it's gone by different names, such as rustic or country. It's a simple decor that balances the old and the new and emphasizes simplicity, warmth, and family-friendly. Best of all, you can quickly achieve this look with luxury vinyl (LVF).
The many characteristics of farmhouse-style
Wood or wood-look floors; slate stone and terracotta tiles; matte colors; wide planks, and patterns tiles underscore this decor. It also uses neutral colors, like beige or gray, with scattered pops of color. Textures are big!
With luxury vinyl flooring, wood looks are found in various tones, including gray or light-colored floors that mimic pine. All LVF is taken with digital photography, clear and vibrant images, displaying knots, wormholes, grains, swirls, and veining variations. Micro beveling and embossing add depth, dimension, and, most notably for this style, textured looks: wire-brushed, hand scraped, weathered, and distressed. It comes in matte, gloss, or high gloss colors.
A terrific design option is that the material can be cut to resemble hardwood floorboards (or stone slabs). It can also be cut into square, tile-sized pieces that can be used with or without grout.
Stone and tile looks
There's a variety of rustic, earth-toned stone mimics, such as slate, travertine, terrazzo, or limestone, but if you want some color and (or just elegance and a 5-star look), go for granite, marble, or quartz. Ceramic tiles come in bold colors and patterns, such as geometrics, hexagons, chevron, herringbone, and encaustic styles.
