Modern vs. contemporary: What’s the difference?

When it comes to choosing a door style, we of course want to coordinate the door with the rest of the house as well as its architecture. Yet it may be difficult to understand the difference between modern and contemporary styles since they have some characteristics in common. However, they are different styles. Let’s examine how they differ and what are their main characteristics to help you select the door that will suit you best.

Modern style

LModern design results in minimalist, linear designs. Modern doors are characterized by emphasized asymmetry, 90-degree angles, and geometric shapes. Their appearance is clean and sleek, often times with colours such as black or white that are used to highlight the simplicity of the design. Modern doors also feature industrial materials like steel and glass.

Contemporary style

Contemporary designs, on the other hand, are inspired by current architectural trends. Contemporary doors are characterized by elements that are more organic, with shapes that are rounder and less angular than modern doors. Contemporary doors often include textures and natural colours. They usually feature wood, metal, or glass for an elegant and refined look.
