Moving into a new home is a life-changing decision, and it depends on a host of factors like location and preferences. However, 21st-century home-buyers are divided in their choices and preferences depending on the generation they belong to and the intensity of nostalgia that governs their choices. Some look forward to a more secluded, old locality with traditional residences, while some opt for modern infrastructure offering state-of-the-art amenities and facilities. The division is also heavily influenced by people’s affinity towards diverse aesthetics.
Traditional homes and its features
The aesthetics of traditional homes date backs to centuries – the architecture, construction and the style that it is built in is still pleasing to the eye for some and preferred by a group of people who like retaining their old-school preferences.
Influenced by historical styles and unique features, traditional home-building generally includes open porches that are large in size, as well as overhanging beams and rafters. Traditional building materials use bricks, wood, stucco, and stone for construction to give it a look that heralds from ancient times.
Long-established neighbourhoods at the heart of the city, busy streets and main roads are the primary areas where traditional homes or new homes that have imitated traditional constructions are located. The interiors, floor plans, windows and ventilation for these homes are starkly different from newly constructed modern apartment complexes emerging in societies.
Despite having a larger footprint than modern homes, the space is divided into small rooms for single-purpose instead of larger rooms covering the area holistically. Traditional dwellings generally have a high ceiling, and the windows are usually symmetrically-placed and smaller in size. This calls for more sources of artificial lighting. The interiors make up for this with charming details like hand-carved woodworks, antique designs, stained glass and interior lightings.
Why 21st century lifestyle and traditional homes do not go hand-in-hand!
However much the old-school people clinging onto nostalgia opt for long-established neighbourhoods and traditional infrastructure, it might be disadvantageous for them to buy or maintain their luxurious lifestyle in these residences.
Let us enumerate a few reasons for that.
- The construction materials used to build traditional homes might not be suitable for the 21st century. They lack amenities that are useful for modern living, such as – clubhouses, parks, surveillance, proper security and fireproofing.
- Despite their eclectic architectural style and aesthetics, the renovation costs might be extremely difficult to afford.
- Long-established neighbourhoods might not provide the necessary help in case of emergencies.
- In case there are elderly or children in the family, then it might be inconvenient to settle for traditional homes due to the lack of access to facilities that they might require.
- The high-ceiling and floor planning might not suit the needs of the nuclear families that are emerging in our society, keeping in mind that the space is more extensive and the single-purpose rooms become redundant.
Modern Infrastructure: A more pragmatic choice!
Emerging modern apartment complexes provide a host of facilities and amenities that are attractive to 21st-century home-buyers. The construction materials used, proper space utilisation and room for customising the interiors are preferred by most. People are mostly busy these days, and they opt for lower maintenance time and cost.
Modern design incorporates the development of stronger glass for the windows that are larger in size and placed in a way that allows an ample amount of natural light into the living space. Construction materials used for modern apartments include concrete, reinforced steel and plastic. The structure and interiors are cleaner, prim and proper that avoids complex designs and provides room for customising the interiors.
The communities and societies that are constructed provide safer grounds for senior citizens, greener and open spaces, fireproofing and enhanced security. Busier lifestyle and luxury living transform the preferences, and people generally opt for these complexes for a greener & stable future.
