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.
Modern: 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
Contemporary: 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
