The modern home style emerged in the early 20th century. Featuring no-nonsense materials such as steel, glass, and concrete, this style was a counter to the elaborate ornamentation that characterized the Victorian era.
Read on to learn more about the characteristics of modern homes from Universal Roofing & Exteriors, a top local residential roofing contractor.
What Makes a Home Style “Modern”?
Modern homes often feature black and white exteriors. However, you don’t have to stick with these colors. Warm wood siding works well for modern homes located in rustic areas. This design can help your home blend in with your surroundings while still retaining a modern aesthetic.
Modern homes have a boxy structure, often featuring a flat roof, gridless windows, and industrial elements. The exteriors are usually made of concrete, stone or wood siding, or some combination of those materials. Expect to see windows with black sashes and no shutters as well as linear stairs and fences.
