Best of Contemporary Homes

by Joann Whetstine

Creating a home with a contemporary style is a popular design trend, but, not as easy to accomplish as it first seems. This is because “contemporary” is defined as “occurring in the present”. As you plan on designing a home that fits this style, you’ll find that what’s “hot” right now, is constantly evolving. A contemporary home takes the best elements from a variety of design styles and brings them together cohesively.

Milgard has provided windows and patio doors for a variety of remodeling and new construction home projects. We’ve pulled together some of our favorites to provide you with a “Best Of” collection of contemporary homes we hope will inspire you.

1) Painted Vinyl Windows and Patio Doors Accent a Contemporary Condo

This home embraced the contemporary style by sticking to neutral colors throughout the space. The decoration is minimal, eclectic and feels very fresh.

2) Custom Home New Construction

Contemporary homes are filled with light, specifically focused on natural daylight sources. This home used windows in repetition and added a large, glass wall that provided lighting and an open concept floorplan for indoor outdoor living.

3) Contemporary Look with Clean Lines

Black framed fiberglass windows and patio doors were selected in this project for their contemporary look and clean lines. Changing out painted white wood railings with thin, metal black railings kept the modern theme and matched the black window frames.
