Modern designs gain approval
MODERN architecture has risen through the ranks of the public’s favourite home design, with one in four now preferring a property to have a contemporary look over more classic styles, says Smartnewhomes.
Research by the property portal found that Victorian architecture was the most popular (25.6 per cent) among respondents who were asked to vote for their favourite from a list of homes from different eras. This was followed by modern (24.6 per cent) and Georgian (16.5 per cent).
However houses from the 1930s – which make up a significant proportion of the UK’S suburban housing stock – were the least preferred with only 3.3 per cent of the votes.
