71 Contemporary Exterior Design Photos

I’ve seen a lot of homeowners emphasize their contemporary home design and maximize their living room. Well, to break the common assumption, the contemporary design is actually starting from the exterior. It’s wrong to assume that it’s just something from the inside. If your home has a contemporary look on the interior, but not on the exterior, then there’s no continuity. Your house will only just look like a hot mess. 

You can see examples of luxury elegant contemporary look on this home site from West Vancouver. If you’re building a new home from scratch, or if you’ll be going through a renovation, take inspiration from these examples.

We just closed on this lake house in the midwest

Siding color? Brown. Trim? Brown. Gutters? Brown!

“Just paint it all brown!” – The previous owners, probably.

Seriously though, this is our first home and we couldn’t be more excited! The home needs a lot of work on the exterior, but we feel like we got a fair deal on it and have the budget to fix it up.

The good and the bad news is that most of the exterior features will need replaced within the next few years. The deck and deck railing are due to be replaced now. The siding is mostly in good condition, but needs some panels replaced and painted. The gutters have seen better days. The roof is 25 years old. Basically, we have the opportunity to make the exterior exactly how we want it without
