The country-style decor has a farmhouse style with some hallmark elements mixed such as vintage fabrics and prints, distressed paint, shiplap, antique accents, chicken wire, and hand-me-downs. You will also spot the use of white, pale grays, color punches, and pastels a lot in country decor. So, let’s take a look at some country style before and after remodels.
A Glam Country Kitchen Makeover
This kitchen had builder-grade white cabinets. Moreover, it had a standard stove and a simple fridge. The floor had humdrum tiles.
The remodel features walls with painted white shiplap panels. The cabinets are pale gray that complements the walls. There are brass accents that add glam to it. A white farmhouse style sink teams up with a brass faucet beautifully.
The island and the hood have a deep navy color. The floor is wood that adds warmth to the cooling effect created by the white, gray, and blue. The crockery is all-white with vintage vibes added to it with a gold edge.
A Porch Remodel from Dull to Dashing
This porch earlier had two rocking chairs, and the sturdy but lonely structure was shouting for a makeover. The makeover features cane furniture. Two lamps with vintage feel flank the couch. A pastel striped rug reminds of a duvet you would see in a grandma’s room. There are lots of punches of color added with blossoms in white planters. These colors look perfect over the spread of gray color on the floor. Country style pendant lights complete the picture.
A Country Kitchen Renovation
This kitchen had boring yellowish wood cabinets with black pulls and a white backsplash. The remodel has breathed a whole new life with all white cabinets. Black metal cup drawer and cabinet pulls accent them. Dark wood countertops and a black metal sink add the perfect diversity.
The island has a wood plank top and a duck egg blue paint. A yellow pendant lamp in a vintage style adds further perfection. The appliances are the same as they merge perfectly with the new theme. The backsplash is the same because it was in good condition. By keeping some old elements, you can cut down on your remodel budget.
A Rustic Country Bathroom Remodel
One glance and you won’t even believe the before and after pictures are of the same bathroom. Starting with the walls, they have warm gray shiplap cladding. The pattern of the floor joins in with the gray walls beautifully. The distressed wood vanity with a mounted farmhouse sink takes this decor to a whole new level.
To add additional country feels, the designer has added a storage ladder above the toilet. The tub is a vintage clawfoot. A lace shower curtain cascades over it, making it more vintage. The shower curtain has a reclaimed wood valance. A neatly tucked-in wicker basket on the vanity rack keeps clutter out of sight.
A Dining Room Conversion Into a Country Kitchen
The before picture of this dining room shows a dining set and a fireplace. The remodel into a kitchen is stunningly amazing. The fireplace got converted into a hood for the cooktop. The designer employed a cool idea. They removed the plaster from the wall to expose the bricks underneath. The bricks then were painted in a distressed manner. The backsplash features square tiles with black grout. The floor has washed wood planks. The countertops are of pale wood. The island is a salvaged table with two vintage wood barstools. The highlight is the lighting fixtures hanging above the kitchen island.
A Country Fireplace Remodel
Sometimes one smart change can impart a new theme to a room. For example, this living room. The fireplace before was in a traditional style. The makeover features a brick cladding fireplace with white paint. This new country style brick look merges well with the board and batten on the walls behind.
A Hallway Remodel
Earlier in this entryway, there was tacky pink paint all over the walls. Then there was a carpet too in pink. But one thing that was clever and still contained in the remodel is the work desk next to the half wall. In the remodel you can see a French country buffet near the entrance door. A wicker basket provides storage for extra throw blankets and cushions of the living room. The buffet has a plain white mirror on the wall above.
If we talk about the desk, then that is replaced with a farmhouse style work desk. It has the trademark stained wood top and white legs, you would find in farmhouse style furniture. The chair is a hand-me-down piece painted white.
A Farmhouse Laundry Room Makeover
This laundry room had only a wire shelf hanging on for dear life as the only storage option. The remodel features two cabinets in gray color. The cabinets have three shelves in between. The chalkboard wall sign with vintage font joins the show too. There is a fourth shelf under the cabinets. The wall behind the washer and dryer has shiplap. There are wicker baskets on the shelves. Baskets are a wonderful way to keep clutter away from the shelves. They look beautiful too. The rug has gone from red to monochrome.
The washer and the dryer are the old ones. You don’t have to splurge on appliances in a country style remodel. If their performance is fine, they can serve as vintage accents.
A Modern Rustic Entryway Renovation
The old entryway had scattered elements. The old look was also a country farmhouse style. But the new look is for those who like to add modern touches to vintage country decor. The open shelf next to the door is now a closed shoe cabinet. The wall at the side of the door has reclaimed wood boards. The X shape console table is adding even more farmhouse vibes.
The designer has built shelves above the window of the bench too. The hall tree is at the corner on one side of the window. The floor is still the same with brick tiles. The color of the wood fixtures is blue now. There is another bench across the brick floor of the living room. That is also the same. The only change is the addition of blue paint on its sides.
A Country Bedroom Makeover
This bedroom earlier was just a place to sleep. There wasn’t anything aesthetically pleasing. The newly renovated look is a breeze. The walls and the ceiling have mint green paint with a satin-matte finish. The curtains are also in the same color as a micro-print. The fireplace is in gray with the exposed bricks left as is. The wingback chair adds a touch of comfort to this serene bedroom. The ceiling has a vintage style chandelier.
A Country Style Sunroom Renovation
The wood trim painted into white has transformed this sunroom altogether. Salvaged tables with sofas in white slipcovers look like a perfect match. The cushions on the sofa and floor have vintage typography. You can also spot some pinstripe vintage prints in this sunroom. A clock in the corner sits with all its glory standing the test of the time. The wicker baskets on the tables bring this sunroom to completion.
