TEN Trends Chip and Joanna Put in Every “Fixer Upper” Home

If you’ve watched as many marathons of Chip and Joanna Gaines’ home makeover show as we have, you’ve probably caught onto their patterns. They love knocking down walls to create an open layout, painting exposed brick white and putting all of these signature touches on the home before the big reveal.

 

1 A shiplap wall (of course).

Maybe it’s in the living room or maybe it’s a scalloped version in a little girl’s bedroom. Either way, you’re bound to find this Joanna move on at least one wall.

 

2 Open shelving in the kitchen.

Preferably lined with white dishes and a few herb pots you can pluck from as you cook dinner, just like Jojo.

 

3 A vintage chicken coop.

Joanna put one in her daughters’ room to organize toys and shares this unique element in her other home renovation projects, too.

 

4 Exposed ceiling beams.

The best thing about fixing up old houses? Finding treasures like beams just waiting to be sanded, stained and exposed to the world.

 

5 A statement wall clock.

If we’re going to believe what we see on the show, the bigger the clock, the better.

 

6 A ginormous farmhouse sink.

Not only do they blend in with Joanna’s love of vintage decor, but they’re also roomy and wonderful. If you’re especially lucky, you might even get a pot filler.

 

7 Rustic wood accents.

We’re particularly fond of wall-mounted mantles or statement walls, but no matter the placement, you can count on this element being scattered cohesively around a new home.

 

8 Subway tile in the kitchen.

It’s trendy, yet classic — just like Joanna. Plus, this backsplash won’t go out of style for years to come.

 

9 Magnolia leaves.

Their construction company is called Magnolia Homes, after all. Which is why you can bet on this leaf being twisted into a wreath or laid out as a garland on a table.

 

10 White on white (on white).

That’s how Joanna keeps rooms feeling big and breezy. But with a few bold, dark statements thrown into the mix, you get a much-needed modern touch.
