America has always been home to a diverse range of house designs. To make sense of the variety, we’ve summarized six of the most popular styles.
Cape Cod: This style dates to the early colonists in Massachusetts and regained popularity in the 1950s. The homes are usually 1 and 1/2 stories, with strong symmetry and a central front entrance.
Colonial Revival: This style also originated with English colonists. These homes tend to be symmetrical with Brick exteriors, dormer windows and at least 2 stories.
Rowhouse: Also called townhomes, rowhouses are built with shared walls between them. They’re common in populous cities, both in America and in parts of Europe.
Craftsman: The Arts and Crafts movement of the early 20th century led to Craftsman style houses. These homes include luxe interior details like stained glass, built-in cabinetry and wooden archways.
Ranch: Ranch homes are usually one-story structures with front-facing garages. They have open floorplans, with easy access to the outdoors.
Contemporary: Many new homes are built in this style. Their floorplans emphasize a flow between interior and exterior design, with an emphasis on sustainability or energy savings.
