Over the years, there have been numerous home styles that have seen a rise and fall in popularity. One such home style that’s recently seen a resurgence in popularity is the International Modern.

In this post, window replacement provider Renewal by Andersen® of Portland discusses what you need to know about styling an International Modern home.


One of the most eye-catching features of International Modern homes is the design of the exterior. This home style often utilizes a sculptural and asymmetrical arrangement of intersecting block forms and features a flat roof as opposed to the more traditional sloped roof. An International Modern-style home typically has a rectangular shape and is often made from concrete, steel and glass.


The International Modern style often features large windows that are arranged in groupings. They form rectangles or squares and tend to extend from the floor all the way to the ceiling. Picture windows are ideal for International Modern homes due to their expansive form. Casement windows are also another popular window replacement choice since they too feature uninterrupted glass.


International Modern style homes often feature single doors for the entrance. Multiple doors in one unit can be used for the patio or terrace doors.


Like any other home style, you have no shortage of options when it comes to the colors you can feature in your International Modern-style home. That being said, the most popular color of choice for this home style is white.
