Craftsman style interior design shows a respect for traditional workmanship shapes and patterns with a heavy emphasis on custom woodwork.
Common features of craftsman style homes are triangular roofs, covered front porches, exposed brick, stone or wood, and exposed rafters and beams. Craftsman style comes from the 19th century era of the Arts and Crafts movement. Some components of the style from that time period have crossed over to present day, where Craftsman style has evolved into a sophisticated and timeless style of interior design.
Features of Craftsman style for your home remodel or new construction home are as follows:

Natural Looking Siding
Another Craftsman style home feature is exterior siding that gives a natural look, mimicking nature as much as possible. Some examples are exposed stone, earth-toned colors, painted brick or wood, along with an intricate front porch with details like handcrafted support beams and double-hung windows.
Custom Wood Staircases
Continuing on with the emphasis on custom woodwork, houses that have custom wood staircases are typically Craftsman style houses. Craftsman style wood staircases are usually accompanied by thick millwork on the walls as you make your way up the stairs. Stain your custom wood staircase or leave it natural to keep it Craftsman.
Another Craftsman style home feature is a large fireplace, usually with built-ins on either side. Some Craftsman style homes incorporate their fireplace into the home’s entertainment system, creating an all-in-one highlight feature of the family room or living room.
