Open concept interior spaces are ideally suited to modern lifestyles, while exteriors are known for their clean lines and traditional design elements. Roofs are sometimes steep-pitched and are typically gabled. They may be metal or a combination of shingles and metal.
Modern farmhouse lends itself to the use of vintage and reclaimed materials with exposed wood beams, barn doors, and traditional finishes at the forefront. Neutral tones predominate, enhanced by plenty of natural light. Design elements in this home style favor classic American elements like Shaker-style cabinetry, shiplap or board and batten siding, and updated versions of traditional hardware and fixtures in finishes like galvanized metal and aged brass.
