Characteristics of a Modern Home

With open floor plans and natural light, modern homes often include the latest trends architects and builders incorporate in their home design plans. Some of these include trending exterior house colors, mixed materials on the home’s exterior and sustainable building materials.

How to Choose Colors for a Modern Home

When selecting modern exterior house colors, think beyond a singular color. A palette of three colors helps create a modern house color scheme for a cohesive look. To start, we recommend choosing three colors: a main exterior color for the bulk of the home, an accent color for details and a trim color to finish the look.
