Des Plaines Mid Century Modern Homes
Mid-Century Modern-designed homes reflect styles that were largely in vogue between 1945 and 1980. These home styles are characterized by open space, large flat planes, and large glass windows. Another key element of these houses is the reliance on changes in elevation; however, many ranch homes built during this era also embody a Mid-Century Modern aesthetic while relying on traditional ranch styles, including the single-floor construction.
Mid-Century Modern homes tend to feature multiple outdoor views to better integrate the home to its exterior setting. These houses also tend to feature clean lines, linear windows, and exterior veneers that were influenced by the materials most in abundance in their geographical region. Mid-Century Modern designers and architects preferred to create homes that feature low-maintenance and highly functional materials. Today, these home styles remain extremely popular with home shoppers, particularly those made from brick and other durable materials.
