GET THE LOOK: MODERN FARMHOUSE

 

February 3, 2020

The “Modern Farmhouse” look has been gaining in popularity with both buyers and builders alike with no signs of slowing down. A perfect blend of charming and contemporary, this popular style easily translates to the interior and exterior of the home. Whether you’re starting from scratch with new construction or renovating a fixer upper, read below for our tips on how to incorporate Modern Farmhouse details into your house.

ROOM IDEAS
KITCHEN
The kitchen is the heart of a home, and the ideal place to stage a Modern Farmhouse aesthetic. While white cabinets are a classic choice, gray, navy, and wood stained kitchen cabinets are also popular options. Contrast is key; adding in pops of black hardware, rustic lighting, or glossy glass subway tile will give your kitchen the layered look Modern Farmhouse design is known for.
LIVING ROOM
Just like with the kitchen, contrast is the name of the game; combine sleek lines with cozy furnishings to quickly transform your space into a Modern Farmhouse Living Room. Shiplap is a trendy wall treatment that will add texture and an old farmhouse look to your living space. Create even more visual interest with reclaimed wood floors, a beadboard ceiling, or chunky wood beams.
DINING ROOM
The beauty of decorating for a Modern Farmhouse Dining Room is in the versatility. A reclaimed wood farm-style table or a sleek modern black table are both equally suited to the aesthetic. Take it up a notch by adding wainscoting to the walls for a practical and attractive millwork detail. Finish the space off with a statement light fixture – metal, wood, and glass finishes are great choices for Modern Farmhouse Dining Room lighting.
BEDROOM
A bedroom should be a relaxing and comfortable place, and Modern Farmhouse Bedrooms are no different. White walls give the space an airy feel while warm wood and dark metal accents balance the lightness. If you have an en suite or walk-in closet, add an extra farmhouse detail with a sliding barn door.
EXTERIOR
Known for steep gable roofs, wood stained entry doors, and board and batten siding, the Modern Farmhouse Exterior is anything but boring. Mixing farmhouse architectural elements like wrap-around porches and metal roofs with modern design elements like black windows and white siding give the Modern Farmhouse Exterior instant curb appeal.
