Characteristics of a Ranch Style Home

Typically one-story homes with open, casual layouts, ranch style homes are marked by low-pitched roofs and extended eaves. They became popular in the 1960s and can include asymmetrical rectangular, L-shaped, or U-shaped designs.

How to Choose Colors for a Ranch Style Home

When selecting ranch style house colors, consider choosing more than one color. A set of three helps create a color palette that contributes to a cohesive look. We recommend the following: a main exterior color for the majority of the home, an accent color for details and a trim color to complete the style.
