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.

If you're a fan of the style, we've got a few spaces you definitely need to see. Take a virtual tour with us through these downright charming Craftsman spaces:
