If your farmhouse is just too old or you simply need some different looks on it maybe it is the time to do a farmhouse restoration. A simple restoration to your old farmhouse could dramatically change the way it looks like. On the other side it also raises your convenience to live in that house.
If you are looking for some farmhouse restoration ideas there is a project designed by Andrew Young from Young and Borlik Architects inc. that shows us how beautiful it can be to restore an old farmhouse to a fabulous new one. The two-floor house is originally built on 1860’s and dramatically changed after the restoration.
They do a building retrofit to the house to reduce the energy consumption. This is an important step in restoring a farmhouse because the older the house is the more energy that consumed due to the un-eco-friendly materials and building structures.
On the interior design the modernization is done to fit the design with latest trend. Even though this house keeps the classic style on the interior design the modern touch is added to make it more comfort. The bathroom for example designed with modern minimalist style.
The bath tub and the shower room is combined in the same area and covered with plastic drapes to avoid water splash. The white color on the wall is mixed with the using of grey marble cover to create modern image.
To emphasize the classic design the room is equipped with crystal hanging lamp. The antique design of the crystal lamp matched with the entire furniture that comes in classic design. On the living room for example there is two sofas that arranged confront to each other with wooden fireplace between them.
The family pictures and paintings are decorating the wall and creates traditional image to this area. These are some inspirations you can use to make your own farmhouse restoration plan and have your brand new farmhouse design.
