Modern / Contemporary Period

 
Housing in Australia hit a boom period after the war. There was a growing availability of mass produced building components and materials. A new lifestyle was adopted and reflected in the interior and exterior design of many modern homes. The term “less is more” is evident for modern and contemporary homes. Trends of today include such characteristics as open plan living, box like facades, striking contrast colours, patios, minimalism, clean lines, large windows or walls of glass windows, skylights, geometric shapes, traditional hip and architecturally designed split skillion roof, rendered or plain brick walls, atriums, planter boxes and landscaped and manicured gardens. Below are some of our Modern/ Contemporary skirting boards, architraves & doors as well as some typical combinations.
