The modern farmhouse look has exploded in popularity over the last few years, appealing to people with a broad variety of design aesthetics by tapping into both our nostalgia for a simpler time and our longing to connect with nature. Designing the modern farmhouse reveals a beautiful harmony of hard and soft, old and new- it’s inviting and comfortable, while also maintaining a timeless and sophisticated feel. Color palettes are generally neutral, allowing the beauty of the wood, metal, and natural fibers to shine.
Modern farmhouse flooring often includes wide plank wood floors, which can be expensive and challenging to maintain. Fortunately, you can get the look and feel of wood by choosing a low-maintenance, durable vinyl option from Pergo. Here are a few examples of how Pergo vinyl flooring incorporates easily into a modern farmhouse design.

The rustic look of the Pergo Max floors in Smoked Chestnut brings it all together, uniting the old and the new to create a design that invites you to sit down and stay a while.
