White Exterior – Modern Farmhouses are all white. Occasionally you will see some rustic touches of natural wood, such as the front door, shutters and the garage doors. But in general, the siding is white and runs vertically in some areas and horizontally in others.

 

Lot of Windows – A Modern Farmhouse is characterized by a lot of windows to let in as much natural sunlight as possible. Many modern farmhouses have open floor plans which makes light a very important element to make the space feel light and airy.

 

Large Covered Porch – the porch is one of the most essential characteristics of a modern farmhouse. They can be any size, but typically, they are very large and span a significant area. Many homeowners will add rocking chairs and porch swings with comfy pillows and throws.

 

 

 

Barn Style Lighting – Exterior lighting choices for the Modern Farmhouse are fairly limited (if you want to stay true to the style). Barn style or Porch Lights are the two most popular.

 

Carriage-style Garage Doors – this style of garage door is very popular in Modern Farmhouse architecture. A carriage-style door is characterized by the appearance that the doors “swing out” just like they do in traditional farm barns. They typically include curved windows and one diagonal piece or two diagonal pieces of wood to create the “X” shape.
