What Are Some Characteristics of American Craftsman Design?
There are four major types of Craftsman homes, each with its own unique take on the design: Prairie, Mission, Four-Square, and Bungalow. The most common type of Craftsman home was the Bungalow.
Some key characteristics of Craftsman homes include:
- Broad roofs
- Wooden & stone construction
- Wide porches
- A grand fireplace
- Interior wooden elements, including wooden built-ins, wood floors, exposed beams
- Wooden kitchen cabinetry
- Bedrooms tucked in attics with pitched ceilings and atypical character
All these elements combine to create a homey, classic feel to a Craftsman design.
