When you build a custom home, one of the most important considerations is your family’s unique personality. Contemporary modern homes leave plenty of room for customization. At Clarum, we’ll work with you to design a custom home that not only fits your budget, but your lifestyle as well. The minimalistic and straightforward aesthetic of the modern home is easy to adapt to your family’s changing requirements.
A strong theme in modern home design is built-in functionality. Ample storage keeps things organized, and close at hand for busy families and older adults. The decluttered atmosphere is calm and easy to navigate – a big plus for those visiting grandparents that may need a little help getting around.
Clean lines and a lack of ornamentation on cabinets and fixtures mean modern homes are easier to keep clean – a plus for all ages and stages.
Modern home design makes use of all available space with a focus on circulation flow for both air and foot traffic. Transitional connections like hallways are minimized in order to maximize space, fully utilizing the home’s footprint – including between indoor and outdoor spaces.
The standard open floor plan approach of modern home design encourages interaction and provides easy, barrier-free navigation for everyone. Commonly, modern home design is also single-level living. Which is perfect for entertaining, keeping track of the littles, and staying connected to the natural environment. Equally important, older family members can move from room to room with less effort.
Modern homes strike a balance between family areas and personal areas. Bedrooms and guest bedrooms are a calm oasis with their own private connection to the outdoors. Modern homes make use of large windows to bring in an abundance of light without sacrificing privacy.
At Clarum, we approach custom home construction with a mission to reduce and eliminate environmental pollutants and minimize environmental impact – both inside and outside the home.
Our modern homes take advantage of the latest in technologically advanced materials like concrete and re-enforced steel. Modern home styles take advantage of a wider array of resources, including local, reclaimed, and responsibly sourced construction materials. These materials are not only more sustainable but produce a more durable and energy efficient structure.
Our construction practices and materials are chosen with your family’s health as a priority. Indoor air quality considerations, non-toxic materials, and highly efficient systems make a Clarum modern home one of the healthiest living environments in the residential construction market. Given Americans spend 90% of their time indoors, a healthy home should be a top priority no matter what your age or lifestyle.
A common problem with home design is that families “outgrow” their space as they add children. On the other side of the equation are homes that no longer work for aging parents: the kids leave the nest and those staircases become increasingly difficult for old knees. In contrast, Clarum homes are designed from the outset to live and grow with families through the generations. Our homes combine the spirit of mid-century modern ideals with the latest in sustainable processes, renewable materials, and technological advancements. The result is a highly functional, inviting and expressive home that supports all ages and lifestyles.
