Des Plaines Contemporary Homes
Contemporary house styles have their roots in the 1600s, so these are very traditional types of homes. While often associated with the East Coast, Contemporary styles have still been popular with house construction companies in other parts of the country like Illinois and Ohio; though, naturally, they come with the updates of their era. A typical Contemporary house features a four-over-four floor plan design. Meaning: there are two stories with four rooms on the lower floor and four rooms on the second floor. These typically square or rectangular shaped houses often feature front columns and formal entry foyers. People often describe these types of houses as 'stately' and 'elegant' owing to their old-world design features.
