Does Cottage style house usually come with a garage?  

Garages weren’t a feature when cottage homes became popular, but today many cottages have an attached garage. The asymetrical shape of the home makes it easy to add a garage that adds to the overall charm of the home.

Is Cottage style considered a grand or luxury style of home?  Is the style used for mansions or normally regular-sized homes?

Cottage style homes are typically smaller and cozy. The style is much more common as a tiny house than as a mansion, although mansions in the cottage style do exist.

Is Cottage style ever built as a “small” home?  Can it be built economically?

Cottages are very popular as small or tiny homes. They are economical due to their simplicity and smaller design. Compact and functional, they are an excellent choice for a guest house or vacation home due to their affordability.

Can Cottage style floor plans be open concept?

Cottage style floor plans are typically open concept. Since they are typically smaller homes, an open floorplan allows them to feel open and spacious with limited square footage. Cottages should feel both airy and cozy at the same time.

What are popular Cottage style exterior colors?

Cottage colors range from classic white to bright blue and even pink. For a truly classic look, you can’t go wrong with bright white and neutral or colorful trim.

For a more natural look, stained wood, grey, beige, and hunter green will complement natural surroundings.

Do Cottage style floor plans come with energy-efficient options?

Wooden floors are traditionally used, along with light neutral wall colors to give the rooms a spacious light look. Vintage, antique, and distressed items add interest and character. Different styles and time periods are often mixed when choosing accent and furniture pieces. Reclaimed wood and rich patterned textiles are a great way to complete the cottage look.
