27 May The Five Modern Looks
Modern homes are contemporary in design. They stay on trend into the future. Homeowners are resisting the date, inefficient, brick-clad, hip-roof homes many builders have stuck with since the 1980s. Today’s home buyers and renovators prefer the simple, clean lines of a modern home and the light and airy open-plan lifestyle it can bring. Take a look at the 5 Modern Looks below.
1. Scandi Barn Look
Barn style homes are loved for vaulted ceilings, open plan living spaces, and bold street presence. A steeply pitched gable roof with no eaves is a must.
Key hallmarks of the Scandi Barn Look include a steeply pitched gable roof, a pure barn shape, clean lines and craftsmanship, and Scandinavian interior design.
2. Mid-Century Modern Look
Modernism emphasized function over design. This look reveals the structure. Large openings to connect with the outdoors. There’s a resurgence in this style across Australia.
Mid-Century Modern homes will have openings dominating cladding, highlighting open plan living, exposed angular structures, and gently sloped roof profiles.
3. Mixed Cladding Look
Mixed Cladding styles add design diversity to similar buildings. It creates interesting facades and streetscapes. Up-scale textures to create interest.
The Mixed Cladding Look allows the mix of complementary or contrasting textures. Key design hallmarks of the Mixed Cladding Look include two or more cladding styles mixed, well-considered windows, and the inclusion of colour freedom with caution.
4. Box Modern Look
The box shape is foundational in modern design. A single box creates little interest. The arrangement and treatment of distinct box shapes make it compelling and eye-catching.
The Box Modern Look is distinct thanks to the hallmarks of a hidden roofline, arranged box form, achromatic palette, and dominant cladding exteriors.
5. Modern Coastal Look
This look is reflective of Australia’s beach shack history. Crisp white weatherboards and styled outdoor living areas portray a luxe laid-back beach lifestyle.
The Modern Coastal Look is defined by contemporary clean lines, achieved by crisp white Linea™ Weatherboards, flexible roof styles, well-chosen windows, all complimented by relaxed coastal styling.
