Contemporary-Modern Floor Plans
What's the difference between contemporary house plans and modern house plans? Put simply, contemporary house plans are the homes of today. Basically, any architectural style that's popular today can be considered contemporary. What's more, contemporary house plans often feature a mixture of styles (e.g. modern with Craftsman) touches).
We asked some of our most popular designers to identify their favorite home designs plans...the house plans they think have the the most curb appeal, the best layouts, and the best features and amenities for modern lifestyles. These were the designs that came to them in moments of genuine inspiration, and they want to share their inspiration with you.
