Modern farmhouse is a decorative style that is currently very popular in 2023. It’s a fairly broadly defined style, as it can include many elements that combine traditional rustic and contemporary elements. This is a style you may want to research and include in your own home.

What Is Modern Farmhouse Style?

Although the modern farmhouse style takes inspiration and elements from rustic and traditional styles of furniture and decor, it’s really a type of modern aesthetic, with an emphasis on simplicity, clean lines, and convenience. It aims to blend the best of both worlds. What’s nice about this style is that you can decide how to make it work best for you.

Why Choose Modern Farmhouse Style?

There are several advantages to decorating your home in this style.

  • Timeless and Evergreen Style. As a style that’s both traditional and modern, you don’t have to worry about your furniture and decor becoming out of date. It has a timeless appeal that is likely to continue well into the future.
  • Homey and Comfortable – While some contemporary designs can be cold and impersonal, a contemporary farmhouse has a warm and cozy atmosphere that’s inviting and comfortable for your family as well as guests.
  • Flexible and Customizable. You can choose from many traditional and modern elements. It’s entirely up to you whether you want to emphasize the rustic or contemporary qualities.

What Does Modern Farmhouse Style Look Like?

While farmhouse style is quite versatile, there are certain elements that help to define it. The following are some examples of typical features of this style.

  • Use of natural materials. In keeping with the farmhouse aesthetic, wood and stone are popular choices for exteriors. Another option is to use metal, with stone or brick accents to provide a natural touch.
  • Neutral colors. For both interiors and exteriors, neutral colors are favored such as white, gray, beige, or cream. However, windows with dark frames are often used as a contrast with the lighter colors.
  • A spacious kitchen. A large and inviting kitchen is often a key feature of the farmhouse style. Cabinets may be adorned with antique brass hardware as well as traditional pantry can contribute to the rustic effect. Modern appliances, a kitchen island, and a deep sink provide contemporary touches.
  • A large, covered porch. A large porch, often of the wraparound variety, is another appealing feature of the modern farmhouse. The porch, complete with furniture such as a rocking chair and porch swing, provides a relaxing environment to relax and socialize.
  • Vintage touches. Decorate your farmhouse with antique rugs, artwork, vintage signs, and other items to give the interior character. You can also include more modern decorative elements as well.

Develop Your Own Farmhouse Aesthetic

The best thing about a modern farmhouse design is that you can easily adapt it to your own needs and preferences. The basic idea is to create a warm, comfortable, and traditional setting that also incorporates contemporary flourishes such as an uncluttered, clean design along with modern conveniences.
