Mid Century home plans bring retro flair, but also provide contemporary open layouts and up-to-date amenities. You don't need to move to Palm Springs to get that trendy Mid-century modern look. The designs in this collection feature bold rooflines, large windows, and an emphasis on indoor/outdoor living. Contemporary-Modern House Plans feel cool and interesting in any neighborhood.
Depending on how closely you want to capture the Mid-century modern look, you can choose one of the one-story homes in this collection that looks like it belongs out in the California desert circa 1955, or go in a more contemporary direction with a two-story plan.
Simple roof planes (sometimes flat, in other cases gently pitched to meet in the middle) create bold curb appeal that will draw all eyes. Frequently, you'll see a wall of windows that adds a sense of lightness. All that glass also creates a bright and inviting interior.
Outdoor living takes on special importance in Mid century house plans. The living spaces typically open out back to a patio or porch. Add a pool to create a pitch-perfect retro oasis. Home Plans with Open Floor Plans(like most of the homes in this collection) feel relaxed and contemporary.
1 Story Home Plans make it easier to get around and to age in place, so if you're looking to build your dream home for life, consider making it easy on yourself in the future by choosing a home with just one level.
