Designing a Modern Home with Style: An Interview with Matthew Rowland of Residential Creations, Inc.

Tell us a little bit about your company and the services you offer.

We are a 'full service' company doing Residential and Commercial CAD Design and Construction, especially interior commercial buildouts, and general Home Maintenance for Rental Properties. We are also certified Mold Remediation Specialists.

What are some of the biggest decisions that a homeowner will need to make about the design of a modern home?

How much can we afford? How much do we actually want to invest? Do we hire an architect, a residential designer, or go with a stock plan? Who do we want to build the home?

What is your design philosophy, or style, with including raw elements in order to create a modern feel?

My design philosophy is to design for comfort and leisure.

What are some important design elements that define a modern styled building or home?

I would say a natural setting, natural and efficient use of different finish materials, layout, energy efficiencies, strength of construction components and methods, and modern finishes.

What are some of the misconceptions you've come across when it comes to modern homes?

I would have to say that I disagree with the 'mini-mansion' concept. Bigger is better, flashier is better.

What advice would you give a client who wants a modern home that combines progressive design and comfort?

The best advice is to communicate and ask questions of everyone involved. Talk to homeowners who have a similar design. Understand and be confident of the process.

What's the best way for people to get in contact with you and your company?
