Your friends may describe a home as “modern” or “contemporary,” but what do they really mean? According to REALTOR® Magazine, here’s how these two styles differ.
This style of house focuses on straight lines and limited details.
Honesty and simplicity are characteristics of modern architecture. Here
are some other traits:
• rectangular exteriors with flat roofs
• open floor plans
• changes in elevation (such as split levels)
• monochromatic color palettes
• limited decorations
This style of house may combine traits from several design styles,
ranging from traditional to modern. Contemporary architecture is
constantly evolving, characterized by the following:
• curves or sweeping lines
• asymmetrical shapes
• mixed materials – wood, stone and brick
• a combination of indoor-outdoor spaces
• large windows and skylights
