Historic or contemporary home design?

Historic or contemporary home design?

When it comes to city living, housing types can vary greatly. On one end of the spectrum, you have historic homes. Properties that have either been carefully maintain or painstakingly refurbished. These red-brick or stone structures are often a window into the past and feature materials and design techniques nearly lost today.

On the other hand, some developers are increasing adopting contemporary designs when they are building in turban area. Modern finishes, modern layouts: everything new and fresh. I’m not talking cheap Lowes carpet and trim, but high-grade cosmopolitan finishes.

Although many people probably fall somewhere in between, I am curious which you would choose given the option. Please vote and share your thoughts in the comments section below:
