What is with all the minimalist-style houses popping up lately? Not that there’s anything wrong with minimalist designs, but not every modern house these days need to flaunt a ‘less is more’ look, right?

Just think of all the possibilities that exist when it comes to modern architecture – the colours, the materials, the textures, the geometric shapes, etc. There are so many different elements that can inspire, which means no two houses ever need to look the same.

That is exactly why we’ve sourced these 25 modern houses that cater to a variety of different tastes – to motivate you before you start building your own version of yet another cookie-cutter house.

Scroll down and let’s get inspired!

1. The dark-toned roof and light neutral walls make this townhouse quite the head turner.

2. Don’t ever think that grey needs to be boring – see how this one manages to play with textures.

3. Various materials offer up different looks, like this caramel-toned wooden door complementing the stone-tiled focal wall.

4. It’s all about the lighting with this modern design, which exudes quite the elegant vibe.

5. Wood is versatile, meaning it can be as rustic or modern/contemporary as you want it to be.

6. Remember that your garden/yard’s look also needs to complement your façade. What do you think of this fresh green vs. earthy beige?

7. Any house big enough for a wooden deck and pool gets our vote of approval!

8. A modern structure with some classic-style touches? Don’t mind if we do…

9. How eye-catching is this example, with its rustic materials coating the modern-styled shape of the house?

10. Exposed brick meeting up with clean-cut concrete? It can definitely work, and this house is pure proof.

11. Who knew that a simple ground-floor house could flaunt a look-at-me style?

12. We just love how the wooden panels contrast with the raw stone walls!

13. Don’t underestimate the power of lighting and what it can do for a house’s ambience.

14. This subtle design achieves greatness without trying too hard – pure perfection!

15. See how the linear design comes through here (the door handle, the window bars, etc.).

16. We love the slightly monochrome look of this modern structure’s colour palette.

17. How about some timber pillars and a zinc roof for a rural/rustic touch?

18. A magnificent house with front steps to match – enough to make any arriving guest feel like royalty.
