The Classic Appeal of Modern Home Design for Your Whole Home Remodel or New Home
Modern design is expressed with simplicity and openness. From the architecture of a whole home remodel or new home to the design of a kitchen, each element is carefully selected and edited to arrive at the essentials.
Modern design, which is inspired by early to mid 20th century design, has been popular for decades and appeals to a diverse array of clients, from young couples to empty-nesters, especially with the resurgence of interest in Mid-Century Modern aesthetics. Precise attention to artistic proportion, an emphasis on clutter-free surfaces, and clean straight lines are the fundamentals of the modern home.
The simplicity of modernism is actually quite complex. With less elements, each one is more important and must be carefully composed to achieve the desired effect. Neutral colors–white, brown, and black–predominate, with an emphasis on earthy, natural materials for definition and the occasional vivid pop of color. Modern spaces are open, with as few walls as possible, and often have a visual connection to the outdoors.
It’s important to note that modern design doesn’t have to be an “all or nothing” decision. Our unified team of architects, designers and construction professionals will guide you through a myriad of options as you decide what level of modern you would like to see in your home, how to balance it with other looks, and what makes the most sense for your lifestyle.
