WOODINVILLE MODERN FARMHOUSE
Modern farmhouse style is not just a look, it’s a feeling. Modern farmhouses combine the best of both as they capture the homey, family-centered feel with old-fashioned farmhouse aesthetics.
There are five defining characteristics:
Large covered porch which encourages outdoor socializing
Use of large openings which link the interior and exterior spaces.
The abundant use of woodwork. Hardwood floors, exposed wood beams in the ceiling, and wood accents are often left uncovered so the material becomes an integral part of the design.
Light walls that are usually white or off-white to complement the home's interior wood finishes.
Big open kitchens with a center island, a mixture of glass fronted cabinets, and wooden cabinets, and open shelving.
These are the most classic components of the modern farmhouse design style, but there are many other elements to the style as well!
