The Popularity of Craftsman Style Homes

Craftsman style homes are highly popular for several reasons!

The craftsman style house plan is one of the most enduring house styles of our modern day. Emerging from the Craftsman Movement of the late 19th century, the craftsman style house has become a clear favorite in the new construction world today. Why do people love this style so much? Below are some key advantages of craftsman style homes to consider.

Outdoor Living Space

When coming up to a craftsman style home, there’s a chance you will enter the house through a front porch. One of the staple features of this house plan is a front porch with stout columns that taper toward the top. Today, outdoor living space is a prized commodity, a place to enjoy the fresh air and nature in solitude or with friends, family, and neighbors.

Timeless Curb Appeal

On the whole, contemporary tastes still love the timeless curb appeal of craftsman style homes. This style’s exterior includes well-defined gables, overhanging eaves, asymmetry, and natural materials like stone and wood. These home exteriors also take advantage of using bold, earthy colors like red, dark blue, green, and taupe. These many times are a departure from more traditional colonial styles.

Hand-Crafted Style

If you love natural materials or love mixing natural and modern materials together, then the craftsman style house will appeal to you. These homes emphasize custom work with natural-looking materials. On the exterior at times, you’ll see a mix of material styles that complement each other. On the interior, you will often see beautiful built-in cabinetry, window seats, staircases, and detailed walls and ceilings.

Flexible Interior Layout

Ameri-Star Homes has dozens of customizable floor plans to appeal to the modern-day homeowner. We can work with you to build a house of any style, size, and layout you prefer, not settling until you are 100% satisfied. One advantage of the craftsman home is its interior layout. Perusing different floor plans, one will see that the Craftsman can accommodate open, closed, and broken floor plans alike.

Flexible Sizing

No matter what size your craftsman style home is, it can still be cozy and meet your lifestyle needs. Even what some would consider a minimalistic floor plan would still pack in just as much character, functionality, and spaciousness as a mansion of the same style.
