7 farmhouse floor plans to help you plan the perfect home

The farmhouse symbolizes a comfortable retreat, a place for loved ones to gather, and a promise of something yummy simmering in the kitchen. Farmhouses originated in the 17th century and were once very simple structures with small bedrooms and a large kitchen. For these old homes, function takes a precedence over style. 
Farmhouses today take a more modern approach with open layouts that flow nicely from space to space. However, the overall ambiance of the modern farmhouse still matches the farmhouses of old; family togetherness and comfort. Most importantly, the kitchen remains the heart of the home. Take a look at these seven farmhouse floor plans and see if you're ready for your own!
