Posts Tagged ‘California bungalow’

Alright, they may not be called “cozy Bungalows” but I always think of warm and comforting little houses when talking about this style.

American Bungalow style was popular from 1905 to 1930. Bungalow style originated in the Bengal province of India. British colonists build them as summer homes. This style became popular in America because the layout is efficient and the exterior is easily customize-able to look unique from the neighbors.

Typical Bungalow features include:

  • a low pitched roof
  • one and a half stories
  • efficient and open floor plan with minimal hallways
  • small front porch
  • built ins for organization

There are many different variations of Bungalows, not limited to California Bungalows, Craftsman Bungalows, and Chicago Bungalows.

The different names explain the distinct finishing touches of the exterior.
