A Modern or Traditional Farmhouse?
Farmhouse, in and of itself is not exactly a style of home. Originally it was considered more of a functional aspect; upon which styles were applied (Rustic Farmhouse, Dutch Colonial Farmhouse, Greek Revival Farmhouse, etc.) As it’s been surging in popularity in recent years, the concept of a Farmhouse home has evolved.
Over the years, we’ve seen the WindsorONE community of builders & architects take cues from both contemporary homes and the classic styles of yesterday, to create homes with a farmhouse feel.
We’ve curated a portion of these images in the new “WindsorONE Farmhouse Idea Book” which you can download below. More than just shiplap, you’ll see v-groove & beadboard as well as S4S trim used throughout. Here are some excerpts:
While the modern living space is filled out with WindsorONE Shiplap, and the traditional uses WOTG V-groove for the ceiling, the approach is similar: Walls and ceilings are opportunities for crisp clean lines to enhance and draw the eye throughout the space.
Above, a comparison of 2 hallway/window bay spaces and 2 storage areas. It’s interesting to see how both storage shelving and benches use S4SSE trim and shiplap, but yield completely different results with contrast & proportion.
