10 ways to add farmhouse architecture to your home

Farmhouse architecture adds beautiful authenticity to your country-inspired décor. But not all of us live in a farmhouse with the right elements already in place. If you want to add this type of detail to your home, you’re in luck. Here are ten diff erent ways you can add farmhouse architecture to your existing home on a budget, whether you choose to hire out a contractor or do it yourself.



Doorknobs are a small part of your home, but they can add a charming vintage touch that will permeate the whole building. The main question to ask is whether you want to use authentic vintage doorknobs or vintage-inspired pieces. If you can fi nd a matching vintage set online or at a fl ea market, you might pay less than if you bought new knobs.

However, you’ll want to know the exact specs of your current doors before you buy a vintage set. Take apart one of your existing doorknobs and measure the diameter of the hole in the door, as well as the rectangular divot on the edge of the door for the latch plate. Make sure the vintage latch plate will fi t inside the door’s divot, and the vintage rosette (the part of the doorknob that covers the hole) is large enough to actually cover the hole.
