Farmhouse is one of America’s most beloved architectural styles. Lately, more clients are requesting remodels that add modern upgrades while honoring the style’s classic look.
The Modern Farmhouse trend is thriving. And with more time over the last year to critically look at our homes, homeowners with various classic styles are considering modern upgrades that add natural light and open up their living space.
For some remodelers, this thoughtful modernization is their bread and butter. And while it may seem easy on a home that already fits the farmhouse category, the challenges are all too familiar. There are the usual complexities of remodeling an aging structure and managing the clients’ anxieties and budgets around structural changes and product selection.
The trick is figuring out how to modernize while staying true to the traditional style’s warm and inviting nature. Jodi Longo, owner of Renovation Studio in Kensington, Maryland, says she strives for what she calls a classic look.
