Modern farmhouse is a newer take on the classic farmhouse style adding smooth lines, glossy finishes, and more monochrome color schemes on top of the original comfortable, practical, and relaxed style. It blends old with new, is less rustic, more sophisticated, and incorporates contemporary elements like stainless steel appliances, marble countertops, sleek lighting, and industrial style elements.
This style of home is warm, cozy, and approachable. It is simple yet versatile and can be made completely unique to its owner. The mix of modern and traditional means the needs of modern-day life are met but the classic farmhouse character remains.
