Despite having originated sometime in the 1860’s, the Craftsman style of architecture continues to remain popular in many neighborhoods in America. Large, overhanging roofs, intricate details, and beautiful, high quality materials give these homes an outward aesthetic that turns heads. With such a grand, stately appearance, it’s no wonder that so many areas of Denver are host to these beautiful homes, including Sloan’s Lake, Cherry Creek, Highlands Ranch, and suburbs in the south like Centennial and Parker.


Siding plays an important role in giving a craftsman home its timeless look, so it’s important to choose the right type. Whether you’re residing your existing home or are in the middle of constructing a new home, you’ll want to carefully peruse your options so you can achieve the look you’re going for.

Characteristics of Craftsman Style Homes

When you think of something that’s been “crafted,” you probably imagine something that’s been very elegantly and intentionally made. There has been a lot of thought and effort put into its design. It may also be very beautiful, but also incredibly functional. Craftsman homes are the same. They’re characterized by well thought out, eye catching details. Some of these include:

  • Low pitched roof lines and overhanging eaves
  • Square columns that support the roof
  • Double hung windows
  • Extravagant porches and front entrances
  • Mixed siding materials
  • Highly detailed exteriors
