The Modern farmhouse style was called a “dream home” by 20% of the respondents to a recent Buildworld survey.


One in three consumers believes their dream home is financially attainable one day, according to a new survey from Buildworld, an international company that offers building materials. Millennials are the most optimistic, with about 38% believing they’ll one day buy their dream home, while Gen Z is the least optimistic at about 19%. What makes a dream home?

Buildworld recently surveyed 1,000 consumers to find out. Modern farmhouse exterior styles and a rustic modern interior were among the most popular. One in five consumers called the modern farmhouse their “dream home.” A modern farmhouse combines contemporary style with a farmhouse aesthetic. Inside, rustic modern was the most popular interior style. It includes modern furniture with preserved and natural architectural features, an open floor, and lots of light, Buildworld notes. Age groups tended to show slightly different preferences for interiors and exteriors.
