Architectural details

A contemporary home will esentially look very different than a traditional one and that’s mainly due to the architecture that changed over time.

Natural light and a general „airiness” of the interior

These are features that are a must have in a contemporary home: natural light affects mood and the overall health state and there is no reason why our houses shouldn’t benefit from it. Also, a contemporary interior has airiness, which makes the house less stressful. Airiness means lighter furniture pieces, both in weight and appearance, and a decluttered space.

Natural materials
