One of the most recognizable architectural styles of real estate in the United States are Craftsman homes, and it's likely because of its charm.
Craftsman homes come in one and two-stories and are defined by their garbled roofs that are either front or side facing, differing roof planes, overhanging eaves, dormer windows, wide porches with painted square or tapered columns, and a chimney and foundation walls covered in stone. As for the siding, it's a mix of slats or wood shingles, stone cladding, and stucco. The homes' windows often have inset stained glass panels, usually in a geometric design.
On the inside, these homes typically have an open floor plan on the main level along with built-in bookcases, window seats, and cabinets. Continuing the wood theme, the beams, raptors, and support poles are made of wood, as are the wainscoting and flooring. When it comes to the hearth and fireplace, they are generally stone, though, at times, you'll find them made of brick.
It's said that the landscaping for Craftsman homes should look natural and blend into its surrounding. One of the most common features is a pergola and many homeowners pair them with a trellis so they can have beautiful climbing vines.
When it comes to flowers, it's common for homeowners to choose those that were popular generations ago, such as roses, pansies, lilacs, and foxglove.
Foliage is another important element as it keeps the true essence of the Craftsmen design. Some good choices are Golden Creeping Jenny and Red-leaf Japanese Barberry.
The History of Craftsman Homes
Craftsman style homes originated during the Arts and Crafts Movement in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Originally, these homes were built for wealthy West Coast residents from wood and materials found in nature.
Craftsman homes have become incredibly popular with young buyers and preservationists who want to restore a Craftsman back to its original glory.
Traditional Craftsman homes are as different as the residents living in them. Some are going to prefer a more laid-back lifestyle with cozy furniture and children's toys scattered across the floor, while others are going to want a formal style where their home is more "dressed up" perhaps with unique antique pieces and fancier furniture.
