Bungalow Home Designs & Remodeling Ideas

Below are common characteristics of Bungalow houses and design elements you may want to consider if you’re trying to remodel yet preserve your home’s original architecture:

  • Low-pitched gable roofs with wide overhangs
  • Dormers (usually in the front) with a low gable or shed roof
  • Porches (often with tapered piers or posts)
  • Natural materials (cedar, clapboard and stone)
  • Lights with oil rubbed bronze or copper
  • Large, Prairie-style windows

“ Thank you so much for the very thoughtful gift and card you sent to welcome [our son] home. He has been following the baseball standings with great interest, and is looking forward to many messy meals with his Red Sox bib and bottle. And whether he realizes it or not, his meal times have been made much more pleasant - and his parents are much happier - because of the fabulous new kitchen you designed and built for us. It was really kind of you to think of us at this special time in our lives. ”
