We're sharing our design tips for farmhouse style on today's blog, but if you want even more inspiration, head to our Pinterest Board

Farmhouse made Simple
Are you a minimalist at heart? The best thing about Farmhouse Style is that it can be as simple as you’d like. Use white or a soft neural subway tile as your defining feature and sprinkle in spare and organic accents.

Make it yours
Don’t be afraid to have fun with Farmhouse style. If you have your heart set on a pattern like Ogee Drop, opt for a fresh white palette and layer it with textiles like plaid or gingham.

Count on Classics
There really is nothing like a wall of fresh white subway tile or our Glazed Thin Brick. Top it off with open shelving, shaker-inspired cabinetry, and the lightest splash of color.

This fresh and chic kitchen features our Glazed Thin Brick in Olymnpic.

At Home with Herringbone
A perfect blend of timeless and on-trend, a Herringbone pattern paired with our glazed thin Brick’s rustic texture gives you that cozy, lived-in look you love. 

A herringbone pattern is a classic that flatters farmhouse style.

Pick Brick
Let’s be honest, we all swoon over our Glazed Thin Brick. Thanks to its rustic finish and handmade color variation, it really fits the bill for Farmhouse style.

Want some contrast in your farmhouse kitchen? Colorful cabinetry might be the answer. 

This cool Maine kitchen's bright blue cabinetry may be the main attraction, but our glazed thin Brick in Olympic makes for a versatile backdrop that's made to last.

While it doesn’t get more Farmhouse than a white subway backsplash, you can set your space apart by scaling up. A great fit for commercial project, this restaurant’s floor-to-ceiling Thin Brick wall is a statement in itself. 

The designers at et al. Collaborative have bedecked Detroit's new Selden Standard with our glazed Brick in Lewis Range. The menu may be seasonal, but its walls stay fresh year-round.

So fresh, so farmhouse
No two white tiles are alike. To take Farmhouse Style an extra step towards contemporary, consider subway tile in a fresh white glaze with little color variation and pair it with matching grout for a clean, barely-there look.

With Farmhouse style, you can keep it as simple as you want. Start with a white or soft neutral tile.

White Picket Tile
White picket fences? How about White Picket Tile. Simple alternatives like replacing classic hexagons with our Picket pattern can take your space from run-of-the-mill to one-of-a-kind.

Looking for a tile that could hold its own, Francesca Albertazzi of Rudy Winston Design opted for Picket to complement her forest green kitchen cabinets

Design Tip: Hire a Professional Installer 
Our handmade tile is the perfect match for Farmhouse’s heirloom style. However, that also means our tile will also have some slight size variation. That’s why we highly recommend hiring a professional to ensure your tile is appropriately spaced out.

French Farmhouse
Farmhouse style doesn’t have to feel all Americana. Antiqued gray glazes like Foggy Morning can help you achieve an elegant French Farmhouse feel.

All the Accents
A white or gray tile backsplash offers a fresh canvas for layering on salvaged surfaces that are most typically associated with Farmhouse Style. To get the look, try incorporating rough-hewn wood, industrial-inspired hardware, and heirloom accents.
