And it is easy to see exactly why these home plans appeal to so many people and why they may have sparked your interest in your own home plans. If you are trying to decide if traditional farmhouse home plans are right for you, Madden Home Designs would love to help.

Where Does the Traditional Style Originate?

Historically, farmhouses were single-floor rectangular homes made from local materials, as the ability to afford designers was not possible for the everyday homeowner. However, as professional builders and architects became more commonly used, the features of these homes grew and evolved. Some of the key characteristics we see today in traditional farmhouse home plans are porches, exterior vertical siding, large windows, clean lines, and a rear kitchen. 

Throughout the exterior and interior of the home, rustic farmhouse elements inspire thoughts of a simpler time of families gathering together and living off the land. Typically, the materials and design choices create a homey, warm environment. In the hustle and bustle of urban settings, the coziness of traditional farmhouse home plans can become a beloved sanctuary. 

Traditional vs Modern Farmhouse Home Plans

With the cozy farmhouse aesthetic, homeowners can pursue two different approaches with their home plans by selecting between modern and traditional styles. Since the styles share inspiration and similar characteristics, many people aren’t fully aware of the differences between them. If you are interested in the farmhouse style but aren’t sure about the key differences, we can help break it down for you. 

One of the most apparent visual differences is the color palettes. Modern farmhouses typically shade themselves in whites, pastels, and off-whites while traditional home plans stick with warm, neutrals. The classic characteristics of the traditional farmhouse style blend into the modern style with a contemporary and sleek approach.
