8 Tips on Using Farmhouse Signs in Your Space

Home is your safe place. The place you return to at the end of a long day, the place you cuddle on the couch with your loved ones, and the place you recharge your batteries. Your home decor is a way to make your safe place feel like your own. If you love farmhouse decor, check out these tips on how to add farmhouse signs into your home! 



1. Pairing your farmhouse signs with decor

When pairing your farmhouse signs with other decor it’s important to follow the theme of your space. There are many different ways to add signs into your decor. You can of course place it on the wall in a collage, or you can try placing it on a table or shelf for a more casual look, paired with a couple smaller decor items. The trick is to keep your decor in “threes” to create balance. This is also helpful if you like to switch it up often because it prevents putting several holes in your wall. You will want to keep in mind how large the space is you are working with, and if the sign is meant to be an accent or the main focus.

2. Using your farmhouse signs in a collage


Collages are a great way to incorporate your favorite family items into your space and personalize your home. You can add in a mixture of old and new items, and adding a farmhouse sign is a great way to pull it all together. Creating the perfect collage is all about balance so that your eye isn’t drawn to the heavy items. You will need filler items, which are items that do not have words. These can be shapes, wreaths, frames, etc. You can put the collage together on the floor to make sure it’s perfect before placing it on the wall. Start with your center piece, work your corners, then add your filler items to the smaller, open spaces. You can use a large sign as the main focus of the collage, or you can use a few smaller signs as an accent if the focus is meant to be on something else. Another great tip for a wall collage is to tape it out on your wall with painter’s tape before nailing.
