Contemporary Design

Contemporary and modern real estate in Houston defines the architecture of today. The modern architecture consists of different styles that involve post-Victorian architecture through the mid-century era. They’re traditional with large windows and French doors to an outdoor living room. The construction of these homes had sustainability and green design in mind.

An example is solar or geothermal heating and the use of non-toxic materials. Hardwood floors are common – wood floors offer various options for interior designers. Builders are installing low VOC paints and natural fiber carpeting in new homes. By using natural and native landscaping, they create spaces that flow to outdoor living rooms.

Features of Contemporary Homes

Some of the standout features of contemporary homes are an open floor plan and a two-story foyer. Other features include a “chef’s kitchen”, that comes pre-equipped with dual ovens, dishwashers, burner stoves, granite countertops, and a large island. Wine rooms have since replaced the interior wet bar which has moved outside. Parking consists of a three car garage with a separate floor for the third bay, and a mudroom. This may also double up as a laundry room sandwiched between the kitchen and garage.

Another trademark of contemporary homes is a classic master suite downstairs. The spacious bedrooms open up to the outside. They feature bathrooms akin to a 4-star hotel. The bathroom features a separate water closet, large shower, and a freestanding Jacuzzi tub. Dressing rooms are in the closets which provide spacious storage. This design is ideal for families with older children as one can live completely downstairs.

Contemporary style homes have open floor plans and are perfect for entertaining. The heart of the party is in the kitchen and guests can move from the kitchen into the family room with ease. These homes also come with an outdoor room. The outdoor room has a kitchen with a gas grill, pizza oven, wet bar and a stone fireplace wired for a TV. Luxurious features include heaters built-in the ceilings for all-year usage.
