The farmhouse exterior design totally reflects the entire style of the house and the family tradition as well. The modern farmhouse style is not only for interiors. It takes center stage on the exterior as well. Exteriors are adorned with bright-siding, tin roofs, barn lighting and touches of rustic wood.No matter what materials you choose, either it stone, brick, wood, or steel, you have to ensure that all materials used are durable and can represent what you love and who you are as a person as well. A simple farmhouse informs a simple lifestyle, and that’s something many homeowners look for in a sanctuary: a place where they can feel relaxed, open and unplugged — but not too unplugged. The old way of life still needs to conform to the new one. Some other farmhouse owners prefer to make their farmhouse exteriors look more classy. The overall shape of their farmhouse may look laid-back, but some contrasts of glass windows on the side with a patio will certainly make it look modern and new.
