More Luxury in Today’s Modern Home
Calgary is a city where a unique blend of cultures and influences converge. It is known as a clean and modern city, yet it has roots tied deeply to a traditional heritage with residential homes dating back to 1911 in parts of the inner city. It was the post-war era of the late 1940s and early 1950s that saw a new wave of growth with new-built homes that incorporated Traditional, Mediterranean and Colonial elements into the design.
Today, Calgary luxury modern homes are designed with the open style concept, allowing for more abundant natural light and cleaner, straight smooth ceiling and wall lines.
Common elements found in modern homes are large expanses of glass, 9′ to 12′ high ceilings, shallow-pitched or flat roofs, straight vertical and horizontal viewing lines, large open spaces for entertaining, fully developed walkout basements and a connection to the outdoor space. Typically, there won’t be any dark stained traditional woodwork such as crown moulding or ceiling box beams. Some modern homes will have all tile floors instead of hardwood. Today’s modern style dwellings have roots that were inspired from Californian or European designs.
Interior finishings of modern homes have elegant linear fireplaces, modern design lighting, vessel mounted sinks and furniture style vanities in the ensuite bathrooms, smooth panel cabinetry plus open and spacious kitchens with either granite, quartz, Corian or even concrete countertops. Most home owners will have interior designers chose furniture that complements the various interior elements and the surrounding landscape.
Modern homes can be found in many communities, whether it’s a detached single family infill home in the inner city, a penthouse suite downtown, or an acreage in a new lakefront community. With Calgary’s economy beginning to heat up again, new home construction continues to dominate many new and expanding communities. Those new arrivals to Calgary are finding trendy newer communities like Aspen Woods to be very desirable because of schools, amenities and close proximity to downtown PLUS the wide cross section of modern luxury home styles to choose from!
