Elements Home Styles
Elements House Plans believes a fundamental key to the custom house plan is to identifying what home styles our clients are drawn to. Because of this we focus on the clients desired home styles which sets the tone for the overall home design. Since, we use the home styles from the outset. Correspondingly our home styles continue to influence our creative process from the conceptual stage all the way through to finished plans. At Elements, we love the opportunity to work in all the wonderfully distinctive home styles in architectural design. Please reach out to Elements and let us put you in your Element!
Craftsmen Bungalow Home Design
Because Craftsman house plans use simple forms and natural materials such as wood and stone to express a hand-crafted character. Furthermore, our Craftsman homes often have nooks and crannies which free-flow from the kitchen to the family and dining rooms. Again this makes craftsman home styles particularly well suited for open plan living.
European Cottage Home Design
European house plans can have an Old World or whimsical look that’s not specific to any one style like Spanish or Mediterranean or French. Our European style house plans often use brick or stone and include high steeply pitched roofs, tall windows often with shutters, and traditional ornamental details like pediments and keystones. Arched openings are another common feature of European homes.
Modern Farmhouse Home Design
Farmhouse house plans can be varied as the regional farms they once presided over. Usually include gabled roofs and generous porches at front or back or as wrap-around verandas. Our Farmhouse floor plans are often organized around a spacious eat-in kitchen. These home styles derive from practical, functional homes often built by the owners.
Urban Modern Home Design
Urban Modern home design offers clean lines, simple proportions, open layouts and abundant natural light. Interestingly, these plans are descendants of the International style of architecture, which developed in the 1920s. Furthermore. this style includes flat or shallow-pitched roofs, large expanses of glass, strong connections to outdoor space, and spare, unornamented walls are characteristics of Modern house plans.
