What Makes a Modern Home Great?

June 19, 2017

There is no one single style of home that everyone ranks as their top choice. Because of this, there are hundreds of exterior and interior design possibilities when it comes to building homes. Modern homes, however, have certainly became more popular over the last few years and that trend doesn’t seem to be lessening.

If you’re unsure whether or not you should work with modern home builders and live in a nice modern home, consider these few aspects of this style of property.

Simplistic style and design

Modern home design aren’t nearly as intricate or complicated as many people think they are. For some reason, a common misconception about modern homes is that they are filled with complicated layouts, too many art pieces, and have little to no empty space. That couldn’t be further from the truth. Modern homes thrive on being simple and appease the minimalist style.

Connection to technology

Smart capability is now one of the most popular ways of living. According to a 2016 survey by the National Association of Homebuilders, roughly 90% of respondents listed Energy Stay appliances as a desirable or essential feature for their homes. The future is finally here and it looks like our cellphones can change the temperature on the thermostat, open and close the garage door, and even turn off the lights from a remote location, but our refrigerators, ceiling fans, and maybe even floors will soon be connected to the Internet of Things (IoT).

Reflection of individuality

Although great modern homes are very simple and are filled with smart appliances, there still needs to be some sort of personality associated with the home. Even the most high-tech home can seem bland if there isn’t any texture inside. Work with your modern home builders to develop a way to get your visual interests inside your home so it reflects your personality.

Don’t just say yes to the first boring home that you stumble upon because it seems like a reasonable price. Do a little property shopping beforehand and work with modern home builders to land the home of your dreams! If you want to check out wonderful new homes for sale, contact Connerton right away!
