27 Farmhouse Front Door Ideas

Farmhouse styling is more popular than ever. Something about the homey, warm feeling of a farmhouse appeals to a huge number of homeowners. And with so many home improvement shows jumping in to show us how to achieve it, it makes sense that we can’t get enough.

Farmhouse style features wood paneling, natural colors, and light. It has a splash of industrial elements through the use of metal and eclectic styling that doesn’t shy away from rustic elements. We’ve put together a collection of farmhouse style front door images to give you inspiration. So, let’s take a look, shall we?

A different take on farmhouse style is the judicious use of timber-frame to give your home that Northwoods feel. Here an entryway and front porch has been spruced up with the use of large timbers like you’d find in an old barn. It adds a rustic feel to the entry.

Many farmhouses are equipped with generous porches, which is one of the features we love so much. And the best thing about porches is having a covered, cozy spot for outdoor living. Whether you pick wicker rocking chairs or a lovely porch swing, you’re going to want that spot for lazing on a sunny summer afternoon.

20. Vines And Foliage

Farmhouses are associated with farms and farms are typically in natural settings. Whether set on the prairies or in the mountains, a true farm style involves some sort of greenery. If you’re in the city this might be an abundance of potted flowers on your front porch. But if you’re a bit more rural, you might consider adding some vining plants to show off your front door area.

Get crafty! A farmhouse is a great style of home to utilize things others might consider as junk and repurpose them into amazing transformations to art. We love the use of these old rusted tools to create new pieces and the whitewashed skulls on the timber farmhouse really pop.
