One of the hottest trends in home design is Modern Farmhouse. As Donnie and Marie used to sing, it’s a little bit country and a little bit rock and roll, with natural finishes, industrial touches and unexpected accessories.
While it’s always in style, HGTV’s hit show Fixer Upper has made modern farmhouse a super hot look. Who doesn’t want a home designed by Chip and Joanna Gaines? If you want to bring this look home (without moving to Waco), here are five easy ways to do it:
1. The Farmhouse Table
Modern Farmhouse style puts the kitchen at the center of the home where families go to eat, talk or work. Oversized surfaces are key, and that often includes a large kitchen table where everyone can gather. Choose one that is made of wood and includes a nice vintage or weathered look.
2. Rustic Benches
Chairs are nice, but benches are inviting. Use one or two at the kitchen table, mixed in with chairs. You can also use a bench outside the kitchen, placing on in a foyer and another at the foot of the bed.
3. Wood Furniture with Antique Lines
Something old adds history and character to your room, but something new with old lines does the trick, too – and it’s easier! Just like with the farmhouse table, look for weathered wood, industrial-style finishes and classic lines. A distressed sofa table like this one would look great in your foyer or living room.
4. Iron Beds
Iron beds will never go out of style. Give yours the Modern Farmhouse feel with a modern quilt or striped bedding. Add lots of pillows and artwork and you’ll give your bedroom a personal touch.
5. Barn Doors
Go all in by swapping out an interior door for a barn-style sliding door. This simple touch can transform your home from modern to Modern Farmhouse. If you prefer to leave your architecture as is, bring home a piece of furniture utilizes barn doors, such as a media console or dining room sideboard.
