Modern Home Design


There seems to be a lot of talk about Modern Design recently -- it's making headlines in the newspaper, it's in magazines at the checkout line, and it's on the television (you can't even turn on HGTV without hearing about it). Of course, it probably isn't all that surprising; we do live in a very modern period of time. What might be surprising is that modern design actually began back in the early 1900s.


Although there have been numerous different movements and schools of design, Modern style generally focuses on strong geometric shapes. Polished surfaces are a predominant feature -- as are large windows, neutral palettes, and certainly state-of-the-art amenities.


The Plan Collection has a wide variety of Modern Style House Plans ranging from the Contemporary/Prairie style homes of Mark Stewart and Neal Aronson (above) to the very angular designs by Dan Tyree (as seen below). To see all of the different options, check out our Modern House Plans page.



Modern style has often been a very expensive niche market, but it is becoming more popular, affordable and prevalent. Check out this modern door hardware available at www.directdoorhardware.com -- it's a great example of affordable modern style.



And how about this sleek S-shaped shelf available at www.westelm.com?



Modern style really is getting much more affordable. You should Check it out!
