Characteristics of a Contemporary or Modern Style Home

"Contemporary" tends to be a catch-all term for a home style that stands out from traditional designs and uses newer building materials and technologies, such as ICF construction.

Common features:

  • Asymmetrical shapes and unusual angles

  • Tall, oversized windows

  • Flat, multilevel rooflines

  • Open interior floor plans with minimal room separation

Concrete Design Ideas

  • These ultra-modern homes often feature interiors with angular room shapes that require the use of materials and furnishings that can accommodate the unique floor plan.

  • Concrete countertops, kitchen islands and even furniture are ideal options for these spaces because they can be molded into any shape desired.

  • Polished concrete floors, possibly incorporating a geometric design, also work well in these modern, open spaces.
