Characteristics of a Craftsman Home

Getting its name from Britain’s Arts & Crafts movement, the craftsman home made its way to America and put function first without sacrificing charm. With low-pitched rooflines, wide eaves and covered front porches complete with pillars lining the entryway, this style is popular in many areas across the United States.

How to Choose Colors for a Craftsman Home

When selecting exterior colors for a craftsman house, consider more than one color: a set of three helps create a craftsman color palette for a cohesive look. To start, we recommend choosing your set as follows: a main exterior color for the bulk of the home, an accent color for details and a trim color to finish the look.
