Farmhouse takes the win again!

This two-time Bracket Challenge winner started to gain traction as a home design and decorating style around 2013 after Fixer Upper made its debut on HGTV—and it’s only gotten more popular over the years!

Why do so many people in the Extra Space Storage community love Farmhouse? It’s a cozy style that embraces rustic and industrial elements, neutral color palettes, natural lighting, distressed wood, and soft materials. In other words, it’s the perfect home decor style for anyone who wants to blend a clean, minimalist look with a warm, welcoming atmosphere.
