The modern design wave has made a huge impact in India over the last few years. Countless designers and architects are now taking on the modern challenge by adding their own twist to their designs. Modern houses, usually, focus on structural simplicity, order and functionality. Monochromatic walls, basic materials and clean architectural lines form the foundation of modern design and architecture. Modern style is also heavily influenced by the elements in minimal style with a strong emphasis on lines, texture, and lack of ornamentation.
