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?
1. Wood Door, Wood Porch, Black Hardware
One design element that can really distinguish your style as farmhouse style is your choice of lighting and door hardware. One choice we see a lot of is the use of black. In these next three photos, we see gorgeous black lanterns dotting the front porch overhead and then bold hammered black door hasps and hinges.

Hanging Overhead Exterior Black Lanterns
This hanging black lantern will give your front porch a ton of farmhouse charm. It's 14" tall and 8" in diameter and comes with a generous 48" of chain to get the hanging length just right.
4. Timberframe Entryway
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.

As we mentioned before, there are so many home renovation shows we love that feature farmhouse decor. It seems that one of the essential ingredients is the judicious use of the perfect accessory. Our next homes showcase a few of the choices you might make when deciding to elevate your entryway.
A Dried Floral Wreath and Star
This wreath has that rustic metal star like the one in the photograph above and a gorgeous twist of vines and red, white, and blue berries. What we love about it is that even though it could be used for the 4th of July holiday, it's subtle enough to be used year-round.
7. Door Stencils In Lieu Of A Welcome Mat
There all sorts of awesome door stencils available online. Made of vinyl, they stick without being stuck and are easily removed when you want to swap out your greeting. It's a way to say hello without your visitor having to look down at the doormat.

16. Front Porches Beg For Furniture
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.
A Classic Wicker Set
White wicker sets the gold standard for front porch charm. So many beautiful magazine photos of inviting front porches feature wicker furniture. It's beautiful to look at and holds up well to outdoor use. We found this classic 3-piece set for you. You'll need to pick out the seat cushions to match your style separately.

19. Consider A Swinging Platform For Your Farmhouse Porch
Swinging Into Summer
Though we love the platform bed suspended from ropes above, you can get this classic teak-look swing delivered in a jiffy and start swinging before hot weather hits. It's 5' long and comes with the chains needed for hanging. This is an artificial wood that doesn't mildew, rot, and is easy to clean. It comes in a variety of colors as well.
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.

25. Skulls And Ephemera
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.
No way to get a real skull? This replica skull (made out of realistic-looking resin) can give you that feeling without a cow ever having been hurt in the making of it. It's super realistic looking and has a metal hanger for easy installation. It's 17 1/2" tall and 15" wide from horn to horn.
