Farmhouse windows are trimmed in a variety of ways, from soft sheers to rustic burlap. The colors are primarily white and beige, with gray and plaid accents. Any of these farmhouse windows would look great in your home and will complement your carefully chosen design elements.
Burlap is a popular fabric for the farmhouse window. Burlap has a rustic charm and also blocks quite a bit of light from entering the home. The appealing texture gives a nice contrast with the smooth sills and window glass. For extra atmosphere, choose a burlap fabric that is printed with a pretty saying or printed to look like a feed sack. One nice example is the French printed curtain that brings a sophisticated update to farmhouse style.
Some of these creative ideas get away from the fabric curtain and replace it with a sliding barn door. This brings a charming touch into any farmhouse designed home. It is also practical for privacy and blocking out light from outdoors. Another novel idea is making a corrugated metal awning indoors.
Try these farmhouse window treatment ideas in your own home and enjoy the old-fashioned, yet updated feeling they will bring.
