Five Characteristics Of Modern Farmhouse Style Home

One of the hottest styles in our fall catalog home design is Modern Farmhouse. 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 Fixer Upper brought the look to the forefront of popular design. If you want to bring the Modern Farmhouse style home, here are five easy ways to do it:

The Carriage House Dining Table is available now. Shop the look at artvan.com.
The Farmhouse Table

A Modern Farmhouse style home 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.

Open Shelving

Classic farmhouse kitchens used wall-mounted shelves and door-less cabinets to hold dishware and make it easy to grab. This puts your items on display. Consider removing some of your upper cabinets to create the look. Shelves with ornate brackets would be especially beautiful and will add to the design.

The Pie Crust Oval Coffee Table is available now. Shop the look at artvan.com.
Wood Furniture with Antique Lines

Something old adds history and character to your Modern Farmhouse style home, 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.

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.

The Bedford Metal Bed is available now. Shop the look at artvan.com.
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.
