Craftsman-Style front Doors and windows

Recommendations for your Craftsman home

Craftsman-style homes debuted in America in the early 1900s, and were originally inspired by Arts and Crafts architecture—a style that emerged from the Arts and Crafts movement of England in the mid 1800s. American Craftsman-style homes were initially popular in California and the Midwest, but today the style can be found throughout the United States. 

Craftsman architecture emphasizes simplicity, clean lines, artisanal craftsmanship, and natural materials, often showcasing local materials with embellishments such as brackets, lintels, and rafters. Craftsman-style front doors may feature characteristics such as solid woodgrain panels, dentil shelves, or artistic decorative glass styles, while Craftsman windows often feature clear glass with simple prairie- or cottage-style grids. 

The interior design of Craftsman homes is just as distinctive, with built-in bookshelves and window seats, inviting fireplaces, and thick trim around doors and windows.
