Top 7 streamlined villas in Phuket ideal for living and investment

Thai palaces and temples, with their intricate decor, captivate the imagination. However, the homes of local residents, even those of considerable wealth, are typically simple and unpretentious. This minimalism fosters an atmosphere conducive to contemplation and self-reflection, drawing attention to the beauty of the surrounding world. Modern designers and architects working in real estate in Thailand often adhere to these same principles.

Discover the unique characteristics of contemporary Thai homes and learn what exactly makes them so appealing to even the most discerning buyers.


Design of modern thai villas

Traditional villas in Thailand often feature lightweight construction, with homes near water frequently built on stilts. Modern buildings emphasise natural light, but large windows and doors are shielded from the glaring sun by thick curtains or dense foliage outside. They also incorporate open outdoor spaces for relaxation, like internal courtyards, terraces, and pavilions. Given Thailand's hot climate, pools in modern homes have become a necessity rather than a luxury, often forming the focal point of the villa.

Furniture and interior

The interior décor of modern Thai homes is similar to dwellings in East and Southeast Asia. Spaces are divided with sliding doors and screens. Locals sometimes prefer sitting on the floor, hence the appreciation for low furniture and mats. Low-lying tea and coffee tables are common in these homes.

In modern structures, these traditions are often softened or blended in an eclectic form. Interiors are frequently designed not strictly in Thai but in a generalised Eastern style.

Simplicity and minimalism

The interior space in Thai villas is maximised for efficiency. As the houses themselves are quite compact, they use smart layouts, sleek and functional furniture, often transformable or retractable to create extra space.

Designers frequently draw from the Japanese style, which shares elements with Thai: the same minimalism without excess, similar screens, and low-to-the-ground approach. This is most evident in bedrooms, where a single bed is installed, and colour is used as an accent, making the house visually more spacious and truly comfortable and harmonious.

Original ideas

A defining feature of many modern villas in Thailand is their complete integration with nature. These homes are seamlessly embedded into their surroundings, with natural greenery, water, landscapes, and other local characteristics forming a logical extension of the interior.

The residence may be situated in the midst of tropical thickets, whose shade provides shelter from the scorching sunrays. Panoramic windows offering views of the greenery create an atmosphere of total immersion in a tropical forest.
