6 Qualities of a Perfect Contemporary Home


If you are searching for a new place to call home, you might find that something is missing from every house you visit. Maybe a beautiful home is too large or small for your needs, has too few bathrooms, is in the wrong neighborhood, sits on an awkward property, or is just not quite attractive. Maybe what seems like the perfect home is actually a money pit--a doomed property that is chock-full of foundation, plumbing, electrical, or aesthetic issues that will require thousands of dollars or work.

Why not just build a new home yourself? When you seek out California residential construction loans, you can obtain the finances for the home of your dreams! No existing home will appeal to you as much as one that you design and build yourself (with some expert help, of course).

Do you find dens unnecessary? Build a home with only a media room! Do you find kitchen islands dreamy? Design a home with a grand kitchen island. Would you prefer a large home on a single story so that you do not have to ascend and descend stairs several times a day? Design with your needs in mind.

Just be sure that you are designing intelligently and according to current style tastes. For inspiration and a little design guidance for your future dream home, consider these 6 following qualities of an ideal contemporary home.

1. Think Breezy

Open and breezy floorplans are the way to go today. While older homes blocked off all rooms individually, enclosing them separately by purpose, today's designers call for spacious, unobstructed sightlines between many rooms. All that needs to remain private are the bedrooms and bathrooms, so why limit the space of other rooms? Open floorplans always look and feel much larger than they are.

2. Stay Neutral

Today, bright furnishings, art, and decor take the place of bold paint, appliances, fixtures, or built-in furnishings. Keep these pieces light and minimal so that your possessions take center stage. Staying neutral is never boring, it just gives you a clean backdrop for showing off your personal tastes.

3. Be Bright

Sunlight is a feature that is never out-of-style; today, though, it is seen as a necessity for home interiors. Ignore existing homes with small, square windows and instead built your own home with large picture windows or floor-to-ceiling views. Like a breezy, open floorplan, a bright home will feel large, as it brings the outdoors in. Don't worry: if you want some privacy or shade you can always close the drapes.

4. Build a Master Suite to Envy

Close your eyes and imagine the perfect place to retreat by yourself at the end of a long day. Do you imagine sunlight and a soft chair or lounging on a spacious bed in front of the television? Whatever it is you dream of, you can build it for yourself. Create a comfortable master bedroom with a spa-like en suite bathroom and space for media and seating. 

5. Think Irregular

Plenty of builders purchase a limited set of design plans and then replicate them over and over again. This means that many homes you visit will likely have an exact match. Modern homeowners are over the average, plain, and predictable suburban house; instead, you should design a home that is all your own. Get creative and design a home that is anything but ordinary. 

6. Add a Unique Feature

Do you want a front garden as you enter your home? What about a courtyard? Do you want your house to be oriented around a swimming pool? Do you dream of having a balcony outside your bedroom? Whatever it is you prefer, you can build it. All you are missing is the financial assistance of California residential construction loans before you can break ground on the perfect spot.
