The modern farmhouse style is a trend that is continuing to gain popularity as people return to simplicity and country-inspired living. Luckily, this trend won’t be over anytime soon. With roots in classic American culture, the modern farmhouse is a chic take on a vintage style that incorporates simple and pleasing aesthetics into the functionality of modern American life.

Classic vs. Modern Design

Traditional farmhouses are typically two-story or 1.5-story structures. Their exteriors are characterized by covered front porches (often wrap-around porches); simple horizontal siding like clapboard, whether real wood, fiber cement, or vinyl; and minimalistic decor with sturdy, practical furnishings.

The newer, more modern farmhouse floor plans often have an open layout. Their exterior typically have neutral-colored vertical – or combination horizontal and vertical – siding and larger windows than their classic counterparts. And while these homes can be two-story or 1.5-story structures, it’s not uncommon for them to only be one story.

In addition to smooth vertical exterior lines, modern farmhouses feature natural textures in flooring, siding, and furnishings, as well as modern accents like stainless-steel appliances, granite countertops, and sleek lighting.

These mixtures of old and new are what makes the style so unique.
