Bold Contemporary Home Designs

Contemporary and traditional styles differ greatly in appearance. A traditional home may appear more cluttered in its design, having large furniture and many closed-off spaces. A contemporary home has a wide-open feeling not only because of its flowing and spacious floor plan but also its use of glass. It's not uncommon to see large glass walls separating the interior from the outside.

Exterior Details

Contemporary homes feature steep, flat or angled roofs depending on the target style. A home can have one or more stories, attached garages and various materials on the facade, such as stone and stucco. Other exterior features include:

  • Separated multicar garages
  • Hip roofs with front gables
  • Walk-out basements
  • Spacious decks

Interior Details

It's the interior that really sets contemporary house plans apart from other styles. The rooms flow into the next, giving the interior an open feeling with bedrooms off to the sides or on the next floor. Open-concept kitchens provide a view into the living area, which may lead to a deck with a built-in fire pit. Other interior features include:

  • Track or recessed lighting
  • Tile, wood or stone floors
  • Neutral color palettes
  • Sleeping lofts
  • Low, rectangular or square fireplaces
  • interior floor plan home design
