The 12 Farmhouse Bedroom Wall Décor Ideas

1. Keep It Simple

Cost: Low
Ease of Completion: Easy
Effectiveness: High

If you’re decorating a farmhouse bedroom, sometimes, the best thing you can do is limit the amount of décor on the walls and throughout the room. You don’t want to eliminate all the different types of decorations, but you certainly don’t want to fill up every square inch either.

Don’t be afraid to leave a wall blank and use the décor in front of it to highlight the farmhouse style. Many farmhouse bedrooms only use a picture frame or two on the wall and highlight the rustic farmhouse appeal through the simplicity of the walls.


2. Use Windows

Cost: Free
Ease of Completion: Moderate
Effectiveness: Moderate

While you’re not going to create windows that aren’t already in the room, you need to highlight the windows the right way to get that classic farmhouse bedroom look. Get curtain rods and use simple curtains, white is an extremely popular choice for farmhouse bedrooms.

Find a way to incorporate the windows into the farmhouse bedroom, otherwise, the entire look of the room won’t flow right.


3. Use Neutral Colors

Cost: Low
Ease of Completion: Easy
Effectiveness: High

If you’re thinking about bold or bright wall colors for a farmhouse bedroom, think again. The farmhouse style works best with neutral whites, grays, beige, and even creams. Don’t go for bold colors with a classic farmhouse bedroom.

But you can contrast the neutral colors on the walls with some bold décor throughout the room. Look at the walls as a blank palette you can build on!


4. Use Wallpaper

Cost: Moderate
Ease of Completion: Moderate
Effectiveness: High

While neutral colors make a great wall in a farmhouse bedroom if you’re looking for something with a little more pop you can use wallpaper. There are plenty of wallpaper designs that pair exceptionally well with farmhouse bedrooms.

However, finding the right wallpaper and getting the rest of the room’s décor to match requires a bit more work and vision than neutral wall colors.


5. Use Kids Decor

Cost: Low
Ease of Completion: Easy
Effectiveness: Low

While this won’t work for every farmhouse bedroom if you’re decorating a kid’s room with a farmhouse theme, make use of their toys! Put some shelves on the walls for their toys or find other creative ways to incorporate them into the room.

You don’t need to settle for a bunch of boring toy boxes to store their stuff, and you don’t need to hide the toys to get the look you want. Highlight their toys and it’ll be easier for the kids to keep clean, and you can get a better look overall. Talk about a win-win!


6. Use Books

Cost: Low
Ease of Completion: Easy
Effectiveness: Low

Do you have a lot of books you don’t know what to do with? Find a way to tie them into the wall décor! You can put them on shelves, add a few bookcases, or get creative with other ways of hanging them up.

While you probably won’t want to put just any books up on your wall, you can often pick through your collection to find a few that will look great.


7. Use a Natural Theme

Cost: Moderate
Ease of Completion: Moderate
Effectiveness: High

Farmhouse decor is in style, and natural themes never seem to get old. So why not combine these two classic décor styles into one great room? You can tie in woody elements, put out some plants, and it works great with a farmhouse bedroom.

It can take a bit more work if you’re going with natural elements like plants, but there’s no denying that the result is pretty great.


8. Create Your Own Wood Sign

Cost: Low
Ease of Completion: Moderate
Effectiveness: High

Nothing quite symbolizes a farmhouse bedroom like making something yourself and adding it to the room. It symbolizes the farmhouse spirit, adds a unique element to the room, and allows you to put your own personal flair on things.

Even better, compared to many other DIY décor options, building your own wood sign is straightforward and simple, and it can still make a big difference.


9. Use Rustic Curtain Rods

Cost: Low
Ease of Completion: Moderate
Effectiveness: Low

While it’s easy to find some cute curtain rods on Amazon or at a local home décor store, if you want to capture the farmhouse bedroom look you should consider making some yourself or shopping at a thrift store.

This allows you to capture a more rustic and authentic farmhouse bedroom look. While those cute curtain rods look great, they’re not what you would find in a classic farmhouse bedroom.


10. Hanging Wire Baskets

Cost: Low
Ease of Completion: Easy
Effectiveness: Moderate

Few wall décor options fit into a farmhouse style quite like wire baskets. You don’t want to overdo them, but you can’t go wrong with adding a few. Just keep in mind that you don’t want to hang up the baskets and leave them empty, so think about what you’re going to put inside them when purchasing them.

Often plants add a great natural element to the room. Other options include wicker, containers, and various other knick-knacks.


11. Use Mixed Metals

Cost: Moderate
Ease of Completion: Moderate
Effectiveness: Moderate

While wood is a classic go-to for farmhouse bedrooms, you can use mixed metals to accomplish a similar look. Classic examples where mixed metals thrive in a farmhouse bedroom include the bed frame, curtain rods, light fixtures, mirrors, and picture frames.

You still need to tie everything together though, so don’t just go mixing and matching wood and metal throughout the room without thinking about how it’ll all look together!


12. Farmhouse Shelves

Cost: Moderate
Ease of Completion: Moderate
Effectiveness: Moderate

Often people think about bare and open walls for a farmhouse bedroom. Not only is this unnecessary, but it can create storage problems galore in the room. While you can’t just add any shelves and still get a classic farmhouse look, there are plenty of farmhouse shelf options.

Look for natural woods and give a preference to those with a more rustic and antique look. While it’s possible to get metal farmhouse shelves, this is a much harder balance to strike when setting up the rest of the room.
