Share Article

Joel & Co. Construction, serving the Los Angeles and San Fernando Valley area, specializes in creating fresh, unique, and contemporary spaces at affordable prices.

Characterized by clean lines, simplicity, and a minimalist look, a contemporary home feels modern, fresh, and functional, yet warm and welcoming at the same time.

“We are seeing more and more clients who want a simple, modern look with straight lines and open, uncluttered spaces,” says Joel Portillo, owner of Joel & Co. Construction. “Growing families often appreciate an open, modern floor plan. We also see empty nesters looking to simplify their lives with uncomplicated living areas that are beautiful, functional, and comfortable, but require less maintenance.”

Of course, a contemporary design doesn’t have to be “all or nothing.” Although some homeowners choose to remodel their entire home, many start by reviving one room such as the kitchen, bathroom, or dining room with a fresh, classy, and modern look.

Three ways to achieve this popular and stylish look:

  •      Use neutral and earth tone colors that work well throughout the day – colors that are not too bright during the afternoon or too dark at night – as a backdrop. A tone-downed background will allow unique elements, such as a treasured art collection, in the room to “pop.”
  •      Contemporary lighting is a relatively simple way to update a home. Recessed lighting, pendant lighting, track lighting, and sconces are just a few of the options.
  •      Simple lines allow shapes and textures to take the spotlight. Unique textiles provide a welcome contrast to the simple geometric lines that make up a contemporary space.

Joel & Co. Construction is passionate and enthusiastic about their work and can help a homeowner with everything, including the design of a space, choosing colors, and selecting the right tile to achieve that one-of-a-kind look. In addition, they offer an eco-friendly approach to building, using green materials and energy efficient products.
