Traditional house designs were such that they suited the local climate. They were built with available material in those areas, be it wood or rocks. But with the change in times, building materials and even the structures of these houses began to alter. Now, they are based on the principle of utilization of maximum space with minimum cost. The presence of ‘inner courtyards’ which were a typical feature of South Indian homes are rare… if not vanishing. And what is left behind are reminiscences of those traditional homes.
But new Indian house designs plans are now offering a ray of hope.
Tradition In Modern House Designs
There are many amongst us who keep reflecting on the past glory of their ancestral houses. But there is no need to worry, as you can actually incorporate the traditional looks in your modern house with the right architectural design. And this can be done in many ways, be it in the interior or the exteriors.
- Intricately carved wooden doors or stone works and ornate wooden pillars can be incorporated in the design of a contemporary house to give it a traditional look.
- Bit of antique display, with traditional artifacts, can also strengthen this effect.
- Adhering to the earlier customs of a basil plant in front of your house and a ‘pujamuri’ can be implemented in the minimum space available without compromising on its religious significance.
This and many more ways you can make your modern house have a traditional look and feel.
