Traditional Style Home

Traditional style home designs may include characteristics from one or more historical architectural styles. Did you know traditional architecture is characterized by symmetrically-spaced windows and understated ornamentation?

Homes that are made in the traditional style often include elements from older home designs, such as front porches or covered entryways, dormers, columns, and at least one front-facing gable. 

Traditional Home Floor Plans

Popular designs for new traditional homes feature two-story plans, but single-story traditional homes may be preferred by older homeowners or young families. Like the architectural designs of traditional homes, the floor plans follow the model of older homes, including formal living and dining rooms and fireplaces.

New traditional homes combine the styling of older homes with modern conveniences, such as home offices and open concept living/kitchen areas to facilitate entertaining and family time.  

How to Furnish a Traditional Home

Traditional style decorating relies on classic furniture that lends a refined and elegant atmosphere. Rich, dark wood tones and bronze accents create a warm and inviting interior for family and guests. Symmetrical arrangements of furniture and accessories and rich color schemes further emphasize the orderliness and refinement of the traditional home. 

Traditional homes furnishings borrow details from many historical styles, including:

  • British Colonial revival
  • 18th century English
  • 19th century Neoclassical
  • French country

Some of the more popular furniture choices draw from the 18th and 19th century stylings of Italy, England, and France. Symmetrical arrangements and refined elegance characterize the furnishings and decor of a traditional style home.
