The design and the overall appearance of the house often reflects the beliefs and lifestyle of people living in it. Designs of houses can be categorized into 2 main groups – modern and classic, both of these have many sub-categories. The classic design takes influence from old houses and redesigns it with some modern improvements. However the modern designs are completely new designs and made to look stylish and elegant. The main idea of contemporary homes is to create a bright environment to live in. Nowadays people prefer to build modern houses because they are simpler and looks much more spacious.
Creating a modern look
There is no way to describe living in a contemporary home, it’s simply drop dead gorgeous and oozes style no matter where we look. This look is created by using smooth surfaces and straight lines with no sophisticated designs or sharp details. It does sound boring when written in words but how it feels with well aligned furniture’s are beyond all expectations. The colors of these houses are of softer tone like peach, pink, white etc. The clean look is made by using metal finishes like steel or chrome and using furniture’s and appliances with similar metal accent. Light wood finishes are also given sometimes to the wall to create a natural atmosphere and in this case, furniture’s and appliances with wooden accent is preferred. Wooden finishes are also given to the floor or sometimes even good quality wood itself is used. Illumination in contemporary homes is made using modern light fixtures like chandeliers, floor lamps, track lighting and pendants.
