Modern or Contemporary home designs focus on simplification and elimination of undue ornamentation—facilitating functional, clutter-free living. These homes have open floor plans, odd or irregular shapes, flat roofs (often with multiple roof levels), minimal architectural touches, and oversized (often very tall) windows to welcome natural light.

Contemporary wood doors normally have square tops and simple, clean lines. Door designs include both stile and rail and flush door construction, with flush doors sometimes featuring horizontal grain patterns, kerfs, metal inlays, and decorative glass presented in simple geometric patterns.
