- Go All White
- Board And Batten
- Barn Style Front Door With A Pop Of Color
- Dark Trim
You can’t go wrong with an all white exterior. While it’s a more traditional look that is more of the classic farmhouse style, it offers a clean first impression and a base for adding small accents of color. You can add pops of color such as dark trim or a dark front door
Board and batten siding offers a country look with wood planks but with an updated appearance courtesy of the molding, or batten. This type of siding provides texture and dimension to a home’s exterior.
A door is a simple way to make a big statement to your home’s exterior style. When looking to enhance your modern farmhouse style with your front door, consider the following options:
- An oversized barn door is the perfect farmhouse
- A door with sidelights
- Double doors
- A door in a bright accent color
- A black door for contrast
- A door with glass windows
The right door will offer an elegant enhancement to your home.
Dark trim is a popular and striking feature on a modern farmhouse, especially when the home is white. The dark trim offers contrast that accentuates the home’s features.
A porch is a classic feature when it comes to a farmhouse, and can be given an updated look to make it modern. Railings and an open design are both synonymous with porches. They can be in any material including brick, wood, or concrete.
- Less Is More
- White Kitchen
- Mix and Match Materials
- Rustic Accent Pieces
- Keep A Humble, Approachable Look
Less is more with a modern farmhouse. The design takes a minimalist approach that we can live with less. The space should feel airy and bright and be free from clutter.
From the tiles to the counters to the cabinets, white is in when it comes to modern farmhouse kitchens. The all white palette allows features like modern lighting and gold/brass hardware to really pop.
Consider metal with wood, leather with fabric, or brick with wood. When it comes to this design style, mixing materials for furniture and design pieces is encouraged. This gives you flexibility when it comes to choosing pieces you love. It’s also encouraged to blend old with new- an antique fixture among modern pieces is visually interesting and gives the space character.
Highlight the farmhouse element of your new design with barn-style design pieces. These can include rustic beams, lanterns, barn doors, and reclaimed wood.
Your overall design, including furniture, fixtures, and design accent pieces, should all feel very modest. Even if it costs a lot to obtain a modern farmhouse look, it shouldn’t look like it. The modern farmhouse design represents ‘casual sophistication’ and should not be overwhelming.
