The modern farmhouse style of home is very popular. We are seeing it everywhere – in magazines, online and on TV. It is a style that is reminiscent of country living, neighbors helping neighbors, and a welcoming of family and friends.
It blends the country style of decorating that incorporates barn wood, old spinning wheels and vintage décor, with the sleek, modern lines of stainless steel and grey, white and blue colors. The images of old country farm homes conjure visions of collections and assortments of necessities, while the modern farmhouse is more streamlined and embraces clutter free space.
So, you might be asking, why is this style of home so popular? One of the most obvious reasons is that it is a functional and practical style. It offers family friendly living and a blank page for interior design creativity. Drawing on the style of the early settlers of our country, the modern farmhouse brings the home of days past into today’s lifestyle. It’s a return to simplicity. For ease of living, the open floor plans cannot be surpassed. If you seek charm, character and ease of living in a well-crafted home, then look into a modern farmhouse.
The past year has influenced how consumers view their homes. In the “new normal” the home now includes an office or work-from-home space that must be incorporated into a family’s lifestyle. It’s important for families to enjoy their homes too, and this farmhouse style of home can easily incorporate a home office while reserving the family space that is needed.
The ability to retreat to a quiet space for work or rejuvenation is high on the list for many who select the modern farmhouse for its spaciousness and accommodation of an evolving lifestyle. After a year of isolation and concentrated home immersion, there is a growing trend to pay attention to a healthier approach to work and get away from the fatigue created by the work-from-home demands.
