4 Reasons Why this Traditional Homestyle is Still Popular Today
Prevalent around the turn of the 20th century in America, Arts & Crafts-style homes represented a break from fussy and ornate Victorian homes. When it debuted, this new style embraced light, openness, simplicity, and natural elements.
Today’s modern Arts & Crafts-style home options at Noble’s Pond pack in both style and luxury, all with an eye towards easy living. Open floorplans help with movement throughout a home while increasing usable space.
These elements of new Arts & Crafts-inspired homes offered at Noble’s Pond can help make modern life easier.
Many Arts & Crafts homes were popular because they were just the right size and layout for modern life. At Noble’s Pond, our homes offer first floor living and optional second stories or half stories for additional space and guests. This home also shows a large porch and square pillar columns, all traditional elements of Arts & Crafts-style homes.
Light Filled Rooms
Natural light was also a trend with Arts & Crafts style homes. In this room, wall-to-wall windows provide a flood of natural light in this first floor living space. This open floorplan with a vaulted family room ceiling can be the place for entertaining or just relaxing. While decidedly modern, this room also takes a cue from Arts & Crafts style by focusing on a few well-designed and carefully placed pieces.
Open Floorplans for Easy Living
Departing from Victorian home styles, Arts & Crafts-style homes embraced open floorplans. The flow makes for easy living and fits with busy modern lifestyles and is convenient for entertaining. This Noble’s Pond home, The Bradford , has a kitchen that flows into the eating area and opens to the living room.
This stone fireplace is a nod to the Arts & Crafts-style homes that incorporate natural elements in the design. Wood floors add warmth, and the wall of windows helps to tie the room to the outdoors.
