Modern farmhouse with a steep roof
Do you want to astonish people with a dramatic vibe? We suggest opting for steep roofs. The traditional steep roofs pose a colonial vibe. Whereas, if you wish to modernize your property, opt for an asymmetrical roof as sow in the picture. Pro tip – Install heightened and elongated glass windows for all the natural light to seep in.
A rocking entrance
Go scout for natural stones (preferably flat) in and around your vicinity. They can serve as a great raw material to lay stairs for your entryway. Just place them on top of each other leaving enough foot space to create a rustic nature walkway.
What you can also do instead is arrange proper cut stone slabs for your entryway. This is a less rustic and crisper, cleaner version of employing stone pavers.
Modern Farmhouse with a wall of glass
Installing an entire wall of glass is a very contemporary style of architecture. You not only open up the outer space to yourself but stay confined in your shelter at the same time. Such farmhouses are found especially in the woods or in the countryside where they are surrounded by trees and natural beauty.
Choose a bold farmhouse exterior color
Rather than painting with a cliche, neutral shade, we suggest you go bold with your farmhouse exterior color. You can go teal, dark navy, maroon; if you do not want to go gaga all of a sudden. Go take a stroll at your nearest hardware store and get yourself some color palette books. Shortlist your colors and buy small containers of them. Paint color swatches on your walls, let them dry, and then finalize.
Remember, it is your house and you can jazz it up as you like. Also, consider your budget before taking up any work. The second important thing to consider is the city you live in, the weather conditions there. So, you can plan and source your raw materials accordingly.
