Modern Vs. Contemporary Home Styles

These terms are often used interchangeably, but modern and contemporary have distinct meanings for designers and architects. Whether you’re interested in a modern or contemporary house, learning the difference between the two styles will help you better communicate your vision and get the look you want.

What Is Modern Architecture?

Modern architecture was prevalent in the 1950s and 1960s. Some architects expand the definition to include 1920s Art Deco and 1970s vintage homes. This simple style rebelled against the overly ornate and fancy “traditional” architecture that was popular in the late 19th century.

Modern home builders of the past focused on connecting people with nature. They used a lot of natural materials and glass walls to blur the lines between indoors and outdoors.

Is Your Aesthetic Modern?

If whitewashed, square buildings with long stretches of windows to let the light in appeal to you, you might love building a custom modern house. Here are some other signature elements of the modern style.

  • Interior Color Palette Of Earth Tones: Brown, Gold, Turquoise, Rust, Etc.
  • Natural Materials Like Wood And Stone
  • Clean Architectural Lines
  • Intentionally Asymmetric Shapes
  • Minimalist Aesthetic
  • Open Floor Plan

What Is Contemporary Architecture?

Contemporary home architecture is defined by what’s currently popular among architects. So this home building style can change with emerging trends. Though the style itself is hard to pin down, custom contemporary homes are innovative and include many forward-thinking elements.

It shares several things with modern design — minimalism, clean lines, and openness — but pushes them outside the usual box.

Forward Thinking Style & Currents Trends

If you like the look of buildings with a more freeform shape including curves, angles, and creative exterior treatments, a custom contemporary house may be your best bet.

Here are other common aspects of contemporary style homes.

  • Stark Interior Colors: White, Black, Grey, And Bold Accent Colors
  • Wide Use Of Glass, Metal, Concrete, And Porcelain
  • One Space With Multiple Uses
  • Repurposed Materials
  • Smart Home Technology
  • Eco-Friendly
  • Energy Efficient
