There's a reason farmhouse design is still relevant ten years after HGTV first started airing it's farmhouse style magic with Chip and Joanna Gaines. It's a beautiful way to bring warmth, charm and style into your home. Today, we find that while our customers still want the general farmhouse aesthetic, they don't necessarily want the same look that's been around for a decade.
Enter: modern farmhouse design.
Modern farmhouse combines all the gorgeous rustic touches of traditional farmhouse style with a modern outlook blending of-the-moment materials and functionality. Imagine unfinished wood shelves combined with sleek metal vent hoods, modern cabinets, or butcher blocks paired with beautiful marble surfaces.
Whether you're looking to make your home more warm and welcoming, upgrading your kitchen to make it easier to stay in your home longer, or renovating with the intent to sell, these 10 modern farmhouse kitchens will inspire you.
