Acadian-Southern. Farmhouse. Transitional. What do these three architectural styles have in common? They’re a popular choice for custom homes in Houston. At Aspire Fine Homes, we specialize in these architectural styles and many more.
If you’re considering building a custom home in Houston, picking an architectural style is a great place to start. Let’s take a look at each of the most popular ones:
As insinuated in its name, this architectural style features a blend of both Southern and Northern inspiration. These types of homes are French-influenced in design, so expect features like dormer windows, large front porches and sloping, gabled roofs. The layout tends to be more of a Colonial style, with rooms arranged on either side of a central hallway and the kitchen at the back of the house. Acadian-Southern homes are interesting and give their residents plenty of opportunities to add a personal touch.
Popularized in home renovation shows of the past decade, the farmhouse style is more than just a fad. It’s a timeless interpretation of timeless design with plenty of character and charm. When you choose a farmhouse architectural style, you can expect a comfortable, casual environment thanks to elements like generous porches, wrap-around verandas and gabled roofs. It makes sense that this architectural style is popular in Texas. Spacious and welcoming, farmhouse homes are popping up across the entire Houston metropolitan area.
Houstonians love the classics, but they also love mixing in modern touches. This is where transitional homes step in with their blend of traditional designs with clean, modern lines to create an elegant, enduring aesthetic that is both comfortable and classic. (Examples: spiraling staircases, wood-to-tile room transitions and rustic kitchens with modern appliances.) They strike the balance between traditional and contemporary to give you the best of both worlds.
