The Modern Farmhouse: A Timeless Aesthetic Transformed by Kay Builders

November 2, 2023

In the world of home design, trends ebb and flow like the changing seasons. Yet, some styles withstand the test of time, resonating with homeowners on a deep, nostalgic level. Modern Farmhouse design is one such trend that has taken the world of architecture and interior styling by storm. But what is Modern Farmhouse design, and how does it relate to the exceptional homes crafted by Kay Builders?

Modern Farmhouse: A Glimpse Into Its Origins

It's essential to take a step back in time to understand the Modern Farmhouse trend. This beloved style draws inspiration from the simple, rustic charm of farmhouses that dotted the American landscape throughout history. However, it wasn't until the likes of Joanna Gaines and her captivating interior design work gained widespread attention that this timeless aesthetic found its way onto the facades of contemporary homes.

As Shannon Cawley, VP of Design & Drafting at Kay Builders, notes, "Modern Farmhouse style has become popular for several reasons that are all intertwined and related." The appeal of this style lies in its connection to the past, its clean lines, and its honest, rusticated details. It's a style that resonates with people in a new way, offering a refreshing departure from the traditional or neo-classical facades that have dominated for decades.

Key elements of the Modern Farmhouse style include board and batten siding, colored vinyl windows, board and batten shutters, and even standing seam metal roofs. This style is characterized by simplicity, functionality, and a deep connection to the nation's agricultural roots.

At Kay Builders, the Modern Farmhouse design is more than just a trend; it's a way of creating homes that truly stand out. Kay Builders has been in business since 1961, and our skilled and experienced team is always at the forefront of architectural and design trends. 

The company's modern farmhouses are unique because they are born out of a deep understanding of architecture and design. As Shannon Cawley emphasizes, "Form follows function." The designs are not merely facades but honest and authentic representations of the Modern Farmhouse style. The balance between asymmetry and massing is real, resulting in curb appeal that reflects the heart and soul of this classic aesthetic.

The charm of the Modern Farmhouse doesn't end at the front door. Kay Builders extends this aesthetic seamlessly into the interior of our homes. You can expect to find elements such as luxury vinyl planking on floors that echo the rustic look of hardwood, shiplap walls, and farmhouse-style fixtures that create a cohesive and inviting living space. It's the perfect blend of past and present, where timeless design meets contemporary comfort.

Kay Builders' Modern Farmhouse homes are currently available in our "The Fields at Brookside" and "The Fields at Mill Spring" communities, but they will continue to be offered in future communities as well.
