If you’re a fan of the Craftsman style but aren’t ready for a full home makeover, try these three quick updates for an architectural refresh.
1. Replace your front door.
Opt for a partially paned version featuring glass panes in the upper third with a thick piece of trim immediately below.
2. Borrow from nature.
Incorporate stone details to the exterior of your foundation and reach for browns and greens, with a contrasting color for the trim.
3. Build exposed beams.
These key characteristics of the style don’t require much reconstruction, as they’re decorative and can be attached below any roof eave.
