Farmhouse style is a popular rustic look that brings an added sprinkling of contemporary to help your house feel more like home. While accessories are important to create this look, choosing the right flooring is essential.

When it comes to creating a farmhouse style home, at Frank’s we have a range of suitable flooring to make your home feel cosy and comfortable in no time.

So, what is the best flooring for a farmhouse style?

If we’re talking farmhouse vibes, hardwood flooring seems like the obvious go-to. With that in mind we have plenty of options to choose from to bring your vision to life.

Wide planks in particular are a fantastic option because they add an even more rustic, antique feel. If you choose this sort of look, 6 to 7-inch planks are the perfect width to create a true aesthetic.

However, no matter whether you opt for planks that are skinny or wide, the finish and type of wood definitely matter when it comes to farmhouse style. We recommend avoiding orange, red and yellow tones because these colours will make the room feel dated.

Instead, we would advise you to stick with neutral wood options in the grey colour palette, or with a whitewashed tone. Domestic wood such as oak, maple and hickory all work well for whitewashing and are the most popular among farmhouse style.

The natural characteristics of hardwood such as the knots, visible grain and other imperfections are all desirable for this aesthetic.

Luxury vinyl tiles (LVT) are a brilliant way to achieve farmhouse style on a budget. If you love the look of hardwood flooring but money is tight, LVT is the next best thing. At Frank’s we have an array of style options to achieve a farmhouse look.

In addition, LVT is waterproof and easy to maintain, which makes it a good option for living areas that receive heavy footfall.

So that’s that! Once you have chosen your perfect farmhouse style flooring, it’s time to characterise your home and fill it with unique knick knacks, reclaimed wood furniture and anything that will bring the look together.

Pop down to your local Frank’s and we’ll be happy to help you find the perfect farmhouse style flooring for your home.
