Mid-Century Modern is a Hit in Boulder Homes
Turn your ranch home into a mid-century modern marvel! All over Boulder County families are knocking down walls to open up floor plans, extending windows from floor to ceiling to bring the outdoors in, implementing minimalist materials and adding built-in furniture like bookshelves or window seating. In these homes, the function of this space is just as important as the design, which emphasizes efficiency and minimalism. This design trend is a perfect solution to bringing the family together.
This design style originated in the mid-20th century between 1930 and 1965 with single family ranch style homes. This open floor plan celebrated the family. Mid-century modern takes on many of the characteristics of modern design with the simplification of form and minimal decoration. This movement was largely influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright who sought to build the architecture within the landscape using long, low rooflines for a more cohesive aesthetic. Many of his structures were organic in form and moved with the environment. With Boulder’s trendy atmosphere and desire for efficiency, these homes are a perfect fit.
