Craftsman homes are known for their rustic, natural look. The style originated in Europe in the late 1800s, springing forth as a product of the Arts & Crafts Movement, which sought to replace the Victorian design aesthetic that came off as stuffy and elaborate. A new, simpler home design approach emerged that emphasized comfort, utility, and craftsmanship. Early Craftsman homes borrowed design concepts like exposed beams and plaster walls from Tudor Revival architecture.
The term Craftsman was coined in California, and soon, construction of homes in this style took off, especially from the 1890s to the 1920s. They are found in any West Coast city and portions of the East Coast.
Craftsman home characteristics:
- Gabled roofs
- Exposed rafter tails
- Shingle or wood clapboard siding
- Large front porches
- Exposed brick or river rock foundations
- Exposed beams, rafters, braces, and joints
In keeping with the tenets of the Arts & Crafts Movement, Craftsman homes should blend in with their natural surroundings. Gardens and English lawns are a perfect place to start. In terms of the kinds of plants that match the classic look, landscapers can consider lilac, soft maple (red maple) trees, rhododendrons, roses, pansies, and foxglove. Koi ponds are a fitting accessory for the yard of a Craftsman home, especially for homes from Oriental or Japanese Craftsman subgenres.
