What is Craftsman Style?

Craftsman style is a design aesthetic that originated in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It is characterized by a focus on functionality, simplicity, and natural materials. Craftsman-style homes often have low-pitched roofs, exposed rafters, and large porches, and they are typically built with wood, stone, and other natural materials. The Craftsman style was popularized by the Arts and Crafts movement, which promoted a return to traditional craftsmanship and a rejection of mass-produced goods.
