Have you ever wondered what message the style of your house sends to others? From bungalows to colonial, the style of your house can be a window into your personality.
Bungalow: Natural and Adaptable
People who live in Bungalow homes appreciate things that are rugged, adaptable and economic in design. “For these people it’s all about comfort that is organic and natural,” says Rikki Nyman, editor of AntiqueHomeStyle.com.
Colonial: Traditional and Iconic
Colonials are the iconic family home and one of the most popular styles in the United States. “People who live in Colonial homes are solid, grounded, successful, and sensible,” says Nyman.
Spanish: Colorful and Welcoming
Spanish style homes are spirited and are all about making entertaining comfortable and relaxed. “These homes are casual and pleasant to live in. They offer lots of color and a lot of different textures and often feature large patios or other uncovered outdoor spaces for socializing,” says Nyman.
Ranch: Unpretentious and Practical
The Ranch style of home is long, low and asymmetrical in layout, with private space separated from living space. The ranch style of home is a great choice for those who are economical, practical and looking for easy living features.
Cottage: Casual and Charming
People who choose to live in Cottages opt for a charming, easy way to live. “Cottages are, by definition, all about comfort, right sizing, and scaling to conform with your real self and not the Joneses,” says Nyman.
Craftsman: Artistic and High-Quality
The Craftsman style of home is down-to-earth, with simple yet strong designs. “People drawn to these homes are often artistic individuals who appreciate handmade products, high quality craftsmanship, and slow design,” says Nyman. These homes are not opulent – rather they’re simple, clean, and well designed.
Tudor: Storybook and Enchanting
Of the Romantic style of houses, the Tudor home is the most popular, as many are drawn to their fairytale-like appeal. “Owners love that they’re rich in design with mixed patterns and unique characteristics,” says Nyman.
Contemporary: Nontraditional and Distinct
The hallmark of a Contemporary home plan is its “simplistic distinctiveness,” according to MonsterHousePlans.com. People attracted to this type of home like newer construction and all that comes with it, including more energy and cost efficiency as well as more space.
