Modern farmhouse style is a newer take on the classic farmhouse style adding smooth lines, glossy finishes, and more monochrome color schemes on top of the original, comfortable, practical, and relaxed style. It blends old with new, is less rustic, more sophisticated, and incorporates contemporary elements like stainless steel appliances, marble countertops, sleek lighting, and industrial style elements.
This style of home is warm, cozy, and approachable. It is simple yet versatile and can be made completely unique to its owner. The mix of modern and traditional means the needs of modern-day life are met but the classic farmhouse character remains.
Modern farmhouse style is the opposite of cold and uninviting, in fact, you may even struggle with guests who never want to leave your beautiful home! It is the perfect blend of traditional and nostalgic with fresh, modern, and new, with an emphasis on simplicity. Inspired by nature and organic materials, it has an air of authenticity and a lack of pretentiousness to it that is super appealing. People can’t get enough of the warm, welcome, and comfortable ambiance and vibes.
If you’re remodeling a home, it is a great style to consider as it’s incredibly popular with prospective buyers due to its very versatile style and how it blends well with other styles. It doesn’t cost a fortune to remodel in modern farmhouse style - simple upgrades like adding shiplap, monochromatic paint colors, some modern house numbers, and some updated hardware (like matte black or brushed brass) would make a world of difference.
