New Home Exterior Style Descriptions

Here are short descriptions of some "typical" features you can expect to find in each of these home styles:

Traditional: Traditional can refer several different design categories, such as Colonial, Cape Cod, and Ranch, depending on the region of the country. Traditional style homes are simplistic and symmetrical - and are usually two stories. Custom Home Builder Raleigh | NC Custom Homebuilders | Design Build Homes

Ranch: Ranch homes are one story and usually have a brick exterior.

Contemporary: Contemporary style homes tend to emphasize bold shapes and colors with contrasting features. Contemporary is a very broad category. Many contemporary new homes in the Raleigh, NC area feature tones of grey, purple, and red.

Country: Country home floor plans strive for a comfortable, casual living experience. A few common features in country style homes are a welcoming large covered front porch or wrap-around porch, dormers on the second floor, symmetrical windows with shutters surrounding the front door, and vaulted rooms.

Bungalow: Bungalow style homes can be defined by many different features depending on their location. Bungalow homes in North Carolina have some similiar features to craftsman style homes. One or 1.5 stories, front door open to living room, open concept floor plans with little wasted space, and fewer formal areas are a few common features.

Craftsman: The architecture of craftsman homes evoke feelings of permanence, of time-honored traditions, and old-world workmanship. Simple lines inside and out, stone accents (front porches with stone base and tapered columns), and built-ins are a few characteristics. Read about craftsman homes here.
