Getting that farmhhouse bedroom can cost a lot nowadays that its become such a popular look but it certainly doesn’t need to! Though, I admit, that hardcore everything painted white farmhouse trend right now is a bit much for me I still think I maintain a pretty healthy dose of farmhouse around here without ever sacrificing modern convenience. I certainly think we can even still be minimalists and still even pull off a farmhouse bedroom. What all farmhouse looks have in common though is probably my favorite thing: They always feel homemade, cozy and comfortable.

There’s no denying that the farmhouse look is in, and here to stay. While you don’t actually have to live out in the country or have a barn in your backyard to get the “look,” there are some telltale signs of a farmhouse that can really bring it to life and give you the vibe you’re going for. 

We’ve already talked a bit about designing a guest bedroom, but don’t forget about the master bedroom when you’re updating or remodeling your home!

A typical bedroom makeover can cost nearly $8,000! But, you don’t have to blow your budget by transforming your master bedroom into a farmhouse getaway. Let’s go over a few affordable tips you can use for a farmhouse bedroom transformation you’ll love. 

  1. Choose the Right Color Palette

Color makes a big difference in whatever room you’re decorating. Farmhouse colors tend to be light, bright, and neutral. Light gray is a great option for a whole bedroom. Not only does it allow you to play with other neutral colors like whites, darker grays, and browns, but you can accent with pops of black decor or furniture to really tie the room together. 

If you really want the gray color to look more like a farmhouse, utilize whitewashed wood as accent pieces, such as a headboard for the bed, window pane decorations, or distressed pieces of furniture. 

  1. White Linens Go a Long Way

Your bed should be the main focal point of your room. First, farmhouses are supposed to give off a sense of comfort. So, having a bed that actually makes you feel comfortable is important. If you’re in the market for a new mattress, check out sites like Bed Tester for reviews of mattresses like Puffy, Purple, Saatva, and others

Once you have the perfect bed, think about what to put on them. Again, lighter is better when it comes to a farmhouse room. You can’t go wrong with white linens. They’ll look great year-round and can give off a “shabby-chic” vibe that you’ll love climbing into each night. As a bonus tip, add a few extra throw pillows to your bed to make it look even more comfortable and cozy!

  1. Make Your Room Decor a Collection

One of the great things about farmhouse rooms is that they don’t need to focus on one piece of decor. In fact, antique and aged pieces can come together in a perfect way to create a distressed, homey look. Look for industrial pieces that put wood and metal together, or find distressed furniture that has been resealed to stay strong even if it looks like the paint is worn and chipping. 

Don’t be afraid to collect different pieces for your room decor. Think about walking into an actual farmhouse and all of the unique pieces you would see. It doesn’t matter if everything in your room matches. The more subtle, rustic pieces, the more realistic it will look. 

  1. Wood Equals Warmth

Let’s face it, you never walk into a farmhouse and feel cold, no matter what time of year it is! Often, it has nothing to do with the temperature of the home. Rather, it’s about a feeling you get when walking into a comfortable and inviting place. 

One of the best ways to achieve that feeling in your own bedroom is to add touches of natural wood. You can find pieces of wooden furniture, baskets, frames, or even decorative accent pieces to add warmth to your room. Whether the wood is reclaimed, new, or distressed, it provides a feeling of home and can make you feel more secure in your own room. 

  1. Go Green

A farmhouse should remind you of – well, being on a farm! In order to bring some of that natural-looking flare into your bedroom, dress it up with greenery. Magnolia leaves, ferns, and dried herbs are all great farmhouse greenery options that go perfectly in almost any room and can add a natural splash of color to a neutral look. 

If you don’t think you can dedicate the time or attention to a live plant, consider some natural-looking faux greenery, like a wreath to hang above your bed. 

As you can see, it doesn’t have to take a lot of time, money, or even a lot of effort to transform your bedroom into a little farmhouse getaway. Keep these tips in mind the next time you have a free weekend for a little DIY work, and you can easily create the farmhouse room of your dreams, no matter what your budget might be.
