When the concept of fixating solar panels to the roof of a house first surfaced, it wasn’t exactly embraced with open arms. Even though home owners would feel better because they are making the necessary change towards a greener energy, the panels didn’t really complement the appearance of the home. For the greater good it’s a small price to pay, but still, it wasn’t hard to imagine what it would look like. Instead of focusing on your garden when you pull into the driveway you’d see the black panels on the roof, messing up the serenity. If this is your idea of what solar panels are going to do to your home, think again.
Modern home designs are becoming edgier. Architects are constantly breaking away from the normal square shape and experimenting with all kinds of approaches. In fact, the new designs are fitting in nicely with the most extensive source of energy, namely the sun. Here is some proof that solar power is sexy and part of the future for home designs.
