Get the Look – Contemporary Design

Go Contemporary

Contemporary design embraces the best of both worlds: it honors time-tested traditions like stone countertops and classic tile, but looks to the future by incorporating new materials, colors and textures made possible by technology. Its eclecticism and flexibility let you incorporate trends into your home little by little, making the style a great choice for people who love to rearrange and try out new looks for their home.

Whether you’re looking to go all out with a full-scale remodel, retile your backsplash or you just want to try a new paint color, there’s plenty of inspiration to be found in contemporary design.

In the Kitchen

This custom kitchen gives a nod to mid-century modernism, but fully embraces contemporary trends. The streamlined, all-over texture gives the room a cohesive look and helps to make features like the linear chandelier pop.

Pay special attention to the island countertop—the same material is carried over onto the other counters, as well as the backsplash.

In the Bathroom

This bathroom perfectly exemplifies the direction contemporary design is heading with its matte cabinets, quartz countertop and parquet flooring. But there’s a twist: the parquet floor isn’t wood—it’s porcelain.

As high definition printing continues to improve, wood look tile is reaping the benefits. New products have gotten so realistic, they’ve become a staple of contemporary homes, especially in Florida, where the natural environment and humidity can be tough on wood floors.
