Look at your grandparents house and houses that belong to your old school relatives, you will see the kind of architecture and the designs that they have. Most of those houses are one stories building with few rooms and even the furniture looks quite vintage more towards wooden end with different wooden designs. Most of the really old houses didn’t have tiled floors or steel furniture for they always looked quite classical with its wooden touch. Now days if you look at how the houses have transformed, you will be able to see that the architecture and the furniture or even the way they build the houses have completely changed.
Some in making them more usable or convenient to live in but also the things that they assume to make someone comfortable has in turn made it rather complex as well.In most modern homes, you may see that they focus a lot more in giving the three dimensional effect in the building itself. Trying to make it look quite modern and enhance the ability to overlook on one side of the house from a different level. I have also seen in most modern homes and garden yards they use a limestone retaining wall and even the same stone in the living areas to really enhance that look. Most houses today uses a lot of metallic and bold colours and these different marbles and stones help to really accentuate that look in the house.
If you talk to most of constructors, you will get to know that most of them prefer using limestone than using long-lasting concrete slabs or brick based layers as they are more durable and affordable. Although they are quite heavy and strong, it really works in bringing out the long lasting nature that it brings. Another thing we see today is that they use a lot of glass windows and walls, instead of brick walls for partitioning to emphasize on the space available. This helps to utilize the space well enough as well. Some houses are built in quite small land spaces and they need to use some good architectural designs to help bring out that usability. The convenience in using glass is that you can bring in more natural daylight into the house which saves your energy in spending on electricity as well as to help to bring out the natural lighting inside the house. Additionally people use mirrors also to reflect on the lighting plus to create the illusion of more space inside the house. These are some of the modern techniques in building the house.
