6 Craftsman Homes That Show Why the Style Is Still Popular

A focus on simplicity and natural materials reigns supreme in Craftsman style homes. The Arts and Crafts movement of the late 1800s focused on a return to handmade materials as a reaction to mass-produced items. Craftsman homes put the focus on elements like exposed wood beams, wainscoting, and cased openings with thick trim. The exteriors include elements like rustic materials and large eaves.

Whether you spot one on Fixer Upper or your local architectural tour, Craftsman homes still look classic and welcoming in their architecture and layout.
