Let’s first define what each style entails. Contemporary homes contain design components from the latter half of the 20th century. They call for architects to take more artistic liberties and think more outside the box. The style of the moment rules here! Modern homes can contain these same components but may also incorporate ideas back to the 1920s. They call for balance and structure in their design. No matter the age or era the home won’t change.
What are the differences between the two styles of homes? Modern homes have a more balanced and structured appearance while the contemporary is meant to be less restrictive in design, allowing for different styles to be incorporated into its architecture.
