Draft On Site’s team of modern home designers created the layout design for this home located in Richmond. The home was recently renovated inside and out. The interior space planning created an open concept design that is bright and efficient.

In modern home design, exterior finishes and details that reflect the home’s natural surroundings help it blend in with its environment. That means using materials that suit the surroundings, such as natural wood for suburban or rural areas, and concrete and glass for urban settings, for example. Modern homes use clean, simple lines that are horizontal and vertical – roofs can be pitched, for example Shed style roofs, but are rarely peaked, so modern homes have few other angles or diagonals on them.

Minimalist, with fresh colours and practical materials make this East Vancouver laneway home a perfect example of Vancouver modern house design. The big, bright windows and open-concept layout, which are typical of modern design, help make the small space look and feel large.

Not only do neutral colours in your home keep it feeling light and bright, and create a nice flow between rooms, but they keep your home looking up-to-date for longer than trendy, bold or bright colours. Keep neutral colours in mind not only when choosing the paint colours for your walls; neutrals should also be used in your flooring and other finishes, including appliances, tiling, trim, fixtures and furniture.

The block-like structure of this home on the UBC Endowment Lands, next to Pacific Spirit Park, makes it more contemporary than modern. The builders, Natural Balance Home Builders, won two and were a finalist for three other awards for the construction of the home.

Similar to the open-concept living element of modern home design, large windows are an important and attractive element of your home’s design. Large windows utilize natural light to create a warm and bright atmosphere inside the home – a trait that’s not exclusive to modern home design, but is essential to it. In modern design, windows should include minimal details as well – that means few or no muntins, for example. These details make your home’s interior and exterior appear more traditional than modern. Lastly, vertical windows help to amplify the modern look. For statement windows on your modern home, aim for floor-to-ceiling glass.

The most important aspect of a modern home is the open-concept layout, with rooms that flow together seamlessly, while maintaining an atmosphere of separation or individuality. In open concept living, furniture placement is utilized to visually and physically partition spaces, rather than using walls, which make rooms feel small and closed-off.

If modern homes appeal to you, use these four elements with your residential designer to create a space that you love to live in.
