Modern Farmhouse Style Trend

Modern Farmhouse Style Trend

In 2019, homeowners are taking advantage of the best of both worlds in the design realm by combining classic farmhouse designs with sleek modern accents. Gaining in popularity throughout Kansas City and the rest of the country, this modern farmhouse home design trend is quickly becoming standard for houses – both exterior and interior.

This rustic oasis aesthetic can be achieved in your home through a few main avenues.


  • Reclaimed Wood: Boasting the natural beauty of wood, reclaimed wood – like the materials sold by Cour d’Alene – give your home a warm, lived-in polish without the hassle of having to wait for your own new lumber to age.
  • Metal Accents: Bronze or silver hardware on your deck helps to establish an impeccable modern flair on your rustic home. These metallic pieces are a small addition that create major impact.
  • Neutral Tones: Both farmhouse and modern style homes thrive when neutral colors are used. From siding to trim to even the color of your front door, sticking with neutral shades of white, black, or even gray are best when striving for a modern farmhouse look.


  • Exposed Ceilings: By exposing the inner workings of your ceiling in a basement setting, you will help bring the modern aspect of your farmhouse to life. Simply paint the pipes and boards a dark color and the room will instantly open your space up to new textures.
  • Barn Doors: Often used for laundry rooms, large sliding barn doors made out of aged wood and paired with dark metal hardware are the perfect finishing touch for any modern farmhouse. Convenient and classic, these doors are a must for any home remodel hoping to bring the farmhouse aesthetic to life.
  • Oversized Accessories: Whether a bold light fixture in your home’s entryway or the larger than life farmhouse sink in your kitchen, this style trend is all about going big. While still remaining functional, these accessories serve as focal points that add extra value and style to your home.

Whether you are remodeling your entire house or are just looking to add a modern farmhouse feel to a smaller renovation, this trend will give your home incredible new curb appeal and comfort.
