Kansas joined the Union in 1861, making it the thirty-fourth of all the states in the US. It is the country's fifteenth largest state, occupying 213,100 km2 worth of space. It is thirty-sixth most populated, with around approximately 2,940,865 individuals. Both these factors together combine to put the population density of Kansas at 34.9 persons per square mile - 40th among the 50 states. The state's rich political history (which includes major events such as the Louisiana Purchase, the slavery debate, an intense period of foreign settlers and the Civil War), combined with the plain topography, abundant fresh water sources and favorable climatic situations has a major influence on how the houses are built - both in terms of the structure & types and in terms of interior design.
Farming lies at the heart of this state (it is, after all, one of the US' highest producers of major crops like soybean, corn and wheat) - and perhaps why the state is near-about dominated with farmhouse-style, barn-style or ranch-style homes. Also known (but not as popular) are smaller-sized stone houses and log cabins. Apartments, condos, and modern houses are typically more concentrated in the urban and adjoining areas. Each has their own go-to design elements - for instance, farmhouses and related homes are known for their open beams and wide lounging spaces, while modern ones are known for their expansive use of “wall-washing” lights, and space-saving-yet-stylish furniture.
