The Characteristics of a Modern Home

Dec 1, 2019 | Home Improvement

A modern home has a certain appeal because of its focus on functionality and minimalist, yet bold design. In this post, door and roofing contractor Turner Home Improvement Contractors lays down the characteristics of a modern home and how the right doors can help you achieve it.

The Characteristics of a Modern Home

What Makes a Home Modern?

“Less is more” is the key principle of the modern house design. In contrast to traditional houses, modern homes lack ornate details. Instead, they are characterized by clean lines and openness. A typical modern home has a boxy look. The layout of the house is usually square or rectangle, with flat roofs and grid windows.

Steel, concrete, and glass dominate the structure of modern homes, giving it an industrial feel. The use of floor to ceiling windows also serves to blur the boundary between indoors and outdoors, creating an inviting atmosphere.

Door and replacement window experts say that an open layout is one of the features of modern home design. Inside the home, you can find neutral tones such as white, cream, brown, or gray.

Choosing a Door for Your Modern Home

The door of your modern home must embody the principles of modern design–clean lines, with an open and inviting feel. To this end, consider doors from Therma-Tru®’s Pulse® Collection. Pulse doors come not only in neutral tones but also in more adventurous colors that exude a modern touch. You can even customize your doors to further accentuate your home. You can choose the style, material (wood grain fiberglass, smooth fiberglass or steel), the glass and the frame. With crisp angles, sleek designs and a vintage style, you’ll be sure to achieve the modern look you’ve always wanted for your home.
