Modern design is one of the most popular design styles of the 20th and 21st century. Modern homes are usually free of clutter and only showcase the architectural elements of the home. In modern homes, less is often considered more. Modern homes consist of clean lines, usually horizontal and vertical lines and many have floor to ceiling windows to bring in light.
When designing a modern home, the idea is to keep the space as open as possible. That being said, these homes consist of open floor plans in which the indoor living space and the outdoor living space are combined as one. Modern homes are not only innovative in their aesthetic design but also in their technology. These homes can include state of the art motorized window treatments, heated floors and a stereo system which can be operated from anywhere inside the home. The minimalist style shows a perspective that reflects today’s lifestyle that tends to be fast, efficient, practical and effective. One of the benefits of modern design is that it doesn’t require specific colors to obtain its look. However, to create a bold space, neutral colors allow for the room to look cleaner and a pop of color add a sophisticated element of surprise.
