10 MUST HAVE FEATURES IN A MODERN HOME DESIGN


When you sit down with an architect to begin the planning of your home, one of the first questions you will be asked is if you prefer modern or traditional home designs. While both these terms are broad, your response will give the architect an idea of your overall design aesthetic which will help the architect begin to formulate an idea of how best to approach your project.


Though the term "modern home design" is broad, there are certain features these types of homes have in common. Below you will find the top 10 features you are likely to see in a modern home design. We hope this list will help you get a better idea of whether this type of home is the right one for you.


1. LARGE WINDOWS


2. METAL



3. CONCRETE

4. WOOD + STONE


Mixing natural materials such as wood and stone creates visual interest, a key component of modern home designs.

5. ASYMMETRY


6. NATURAL LIGHT


The white walls along with the large windows allow natural light to illuminate this modern home.

7. LARGE SLIDING OR ACCORDION DOORS


The large accordion doors of this modern home design completely open the space to the patio and ocean beyond.

8. MINIMAL ORNAMENTATION


Modern home design uses the lines and materials of the home to create visual interest instead of ornamentation.
