The five best modern floor coverings for farmhouses

The modern peasant style is a relaxed and warm appearance – the epitome of “home”.

This traditional-modern-decorative style is more refined than its original, offering clean and contemporary elements that blend with the popular and worn pieces that bring a piece of land to the modern urban home. Check out Carpet One for five farmhouse flooring options to achieve the farmhouse look in your home.

1Farmhouse luxury vinyl plank

Since “rustic” is the main influencer of the modern farmhouse aesthetic, it only makes sense to bring it into your decor from the ground up. Our first choice is a luxury vinyl flooring product, Bellevue Avenue in Sunken Treasure. The look is textured and warm, but light enough to give a room that cool and casual modern farmhouse look. For your kitchen floor on the farm, this product goes wonderfully with black fittings and white or colored cabinets. Apart from its aesthetic properties, the vinyl floor of a farmhouse is durable and therefore ideal for use in high-traffic areas such as the mudroom or foyer.

Natural wood is the epitome of farmhouse chic. It’s earthy, simple, and practical, and it looks great when it runs around the house – including the kitchen! As the main floor for farmhouses throughout the home, I recommend Shelbyville in Dovetail on the Rustic River. This wide-plank hardwood is characterized by character and charm, which goes wonderfully with a modern farmhouse atmosphere. This particular product is slightly warmer and has a medium brown tone effect. It shows the natural beauty with its properties in the knots of the white oak that is the notable theme in this look.

For those who love the look of wood but want durability, laminate products are an option to consider. Laminates have come a long way from the cheesy tile you might remember from grandma’s house long ago. Modern laminates come in a number of looks and styles that give real hardwood a run for the money – and they’re very affordable too. Despite the changes in laminate over the years, they have remained true to the functional features that have made them a popular choice. They’re durable, affordable, and stylish, making them a great solution for a quick and easy floor update in a snap.

For a farmhouse modern laminate floor, try Laurel Springs in Cardigan on Mirror Lake. This product is light, rustic and goes perfectly with a relaxed look in a modern farmhouse design. It has these great saw marks, big knots, and loads of character.

Lighter floors are ideal for the modern peasant style. It gives you the flexibility to lay darker carpets and mix and match different tones of wood. Lighter floors also bring brightness into the room and improve the feeling of space.

4thFarmhouse porcelain tiles

Porcelain floors are a great choice for homes of all styles because they are very durable, low-maintenance, and long-lasting. Complement – or inspire! – In your modern farmhouse, check out Haut Monde’s unpolished tiles in Elite Gray by Bel Terra.

The matte finish is great for that relaxed aesthetic and practical – great for hiding your usual day-to-day troubles. Try installing this farmhouse tile in an offset brick pattern for a cobblestone look. Consider contrasting the tile with a darker charcoal mortar, which will make the farmhouse’s tile floor “pop”. Darker grout will also keep your floors looking fresh longer, as lighter grout will stain over time.

5Carpets for the modern farmhouse

What is a modern farmhouse without a cozy farmer’s carpet? A carpeted floor ensures that a bedroom feels warm and cozy. In living areas, stick to carpets that combine the charm of hardwood (or laminate!) With added warmth and texture underfoot. Stick to a neutral palette to keep the space looking fresh and open. Keep patterns simple and add depth to a neutral palette by incorporating a variety of textures into the carpet and other textiles throughout the room.

For a neutral look, carpet options include Orchard Stones in Ice Cap from Oath by Resista. This carpet product has all the elements of the modern peasant character – simplicity, warmth and low maintenance. The cut & loop design and color make a room feel inviting and at the same time practical for everyday use.

The modern look of a farmhouse is casual, but don’t get this for thoughtlessness. It’s about achieving the right character and charm – the imperfectly perfect. This aesthetic, despite the farm-inspired nickname, is less about location. It’s more suited to a specific lifestyle: pets, busy families, and those who love the relaxed life.

The goal is a home that feels inviting and calming. It’s never too precious and has finishes that can keep up with lifestyle. This style is rooted in history and is easy to modernize with the right elements, starting from the ground up!
