What is Contemporary Style?

Contemporary style is a broad term used to describe architecture and design that is current or up-to-date. In real estate, contemporary style might refer to homes or buildings with modern, sleek lines and an absence of traditional decorative elements. This style is often characterized by the use of clean, geometric shapes, an open floor plan, and an emphasis on functionality. Contemporary design often incorporates elements of other styles, such as minimalism, modernism, and industrial design, and can vary widely in terms of materials, color schemes, and finishes.
