Traditional House Plans
Although the style of a Traditional home might sound stifling, old, and outdated, it is anything but. While there are common parameters in the style, several complimentary designs and decor will work well with this home.
A typical Traditional style home is broad in concept. Where is the home located geographically? What building materials are available? Is there high history or culture in the area where the home is located? These factors give you a broad license, not stagnant limitations to your build.
The Traditional home has one or two stories and often has tall rectangular windows on the front façade. Wood or brick is common in exterior material and often in dark colors. Paint colors of red, brown, green, grey, or black are accented with lighter, brighter hues. For example, think grey exterior with white trim.
The phrase ‘the devil is in the details’ certainly holds true in this style. Crown molding, dentil molding, columns, and wood paneling, like wainscot (wood paneling with raised trim), certainly add detail and a feeling of tradition to your home. However, a Traditional home ‘base’ décor pairs well with other décor styles. Mix sleek glass and brass with ornate wood tables or chairs. Hanging a crystal chandelier in a hardwood floored foyer with a patterned area rug is just the right feel for a Traditional home. A Traditional home is a very livable home. Detail does not have to lend itself to busy and ‘overdone’. An antique sideboard would be framed nicely by silk drapery in a bedroom, dining room or family room.
