Our farmhouse features are in tune with natural elements but executed in a clean and stylish palette. They are hearty but maintain sophistication and style. Read on to learn more about our most requested farmhouse features in our Carolina custom homes.
Most Popular Farmhouse Features
Expansive Covered Porches
Nothing elicits the nostalgia of a southern farmhouse quite like drinking a glass of cold lemonade while sitting in a white rocker on a large, open porch. Expansive covered porches are something we incorporate into many of our home designs. With southern climates being so mild and outdoor living growing in popularity, large covered outdoor areas are among our most requested features. However, we veer away from traditional wood floor planks and use more durable materials, such as brick or shell concrete.
Exposed wood beams are a natural element that creates a striking architectural detail to your home. It’s almost always one of the first things guests comment on when entering a home. Exposed wood beams are stunning but don’t overpower a home’s overall design aesthetic. They give spaces a rustic feel, but also a sense of grandeur.
Rustic Wood Flooring
Many of our flooring options have a rustic, weathered look but are built with durability in mind. Today’s flooring technologies let buyers achieve a lived-in look that will stand up to the test of time.
White shaker cabinets are the ideal choice for farmhouse style because of their brightness and effortless design. They help unify a space and bring balance to a colorful island or backsplash. Incorporated with other details like shiplap or rustic pendant lighting, they can help set off your kitchen design.
Sliding Barn Doors
In years past, these doors were used on the exterior of barns for entry and exit. Today they are often used as interior sliding doors to save space and add a decorative touch. With thousands of door styles to choose from and unique hardware options, we can elevate an interior entry to a style that is truly your own.
