Making Your Home Beautiful in Charles County MD

IStyles and New Home in Charles County MDt doesn’t matter if you are renovating your home to live in or to sell, there are several different styles to consider, having some knowledge about the various designs and what it entails would be a good place to start.

The following are some simple outlines on the more popular designs used:

Farmhouse
here the main facade feature would be the covered porch that usually stretches along the front and goes around the sides of the unit. One may also consider the steep gable roof, shutters and horizontal siding that make up the style of the farmhouse.

Georgian
the symmetrical design evident here comes from the stately brick facade that amplifies the Georgian style. The decorative keystones over the shuttered windows, the columned entryway and the gabled dormers all add to the distinct characteristic of this style.

Cape Cod
the simple lines used here contribute to the symmetrical design, where the dormers and the dominant roofline dictate its distinctness. The roofline, which typically extends down to the first floor, is what makes this design mirror the early styles.

Victorian
Victorian style architecture has a very distinctive style that is recognizable in the home corner turret, its wraparound porch and the ornate detailing work. This is also another style that is considered dated, yet still charmingly drawing the interest of a lot of home owners.

Mediterranean
the arched windows and stucco exterior are all part of this particular style. Adding to this, the low pitched tiled roof is an excellent example of the Mediterranean style.

Contemporary
then there is the ever popular more suburban look which is displayed through its asymmetrical design of varied rooflines, stark facade and hold windows. In some designs, there is the add-on of a circular tower with a domed skylight.
