What is the defference between Colonial and Contemporary construction in kerala?Colonial Style House
Colonial style homes are often characterized by a large, grand entrance, high peaked roof and central chimneys. Colonial decorating started as a rustic, hand-built design which over the years has turned into a lavish and ornate style.
Colonial homes appear timeless. They often boast detailed craftsmanship and still a “cozy” feel. Many times they are 2-story homes with a kitchen and living room on the first floor, and bedrooms on the second. Many people gravitate towards these homes because they are both spacious and practical, mature and defined.Contemporary Style House
A contemporary home, on the other hand, is more modern, more 21st century. This style gained popularity in the 70’s and embraced the concepts of modern architecture including open floor plans, natural light and geometric lines.
Contemporary homes these days often use sustainable and mixed materials on the exterior, and inside use neutral colors like black, white, grey and beige. Sometimes in a contemporary home you’ll see a punch of color on an accent wall or even bright colored blocks or tile. Contemporary style furniture usually makes a bold statement, while at the same time maintaining clean lines and symmetry.
Often in contemporary homes the lighting can be more “playful.” You might see color or mixed metal on the fixtures. Whereas colonial homes tend to stay more traditional with something like a black iron chandelier.
