Traditional Style Home Floor Plans

How much do Traditional style houses cost per square foot?

The Traditional style is the natural evolution of upscale European styles. It does not require the complicated architecture of, say, a Victorian house, but it includes embellishments from the Chippendale, Queen Anne, and Sheraton styles like piping, tufting, and wingbacks. Traditional style calls for millwork and fine craftsmanship, and these architectural additions cost money. Traditional style homes seldom cost less than $275 per square foot to build, exclusive of real estate, permits, and utilities, and can cost as much as $500 per square foot when they are built on sloping lots.

Are there Traditional style floor plans with a detached garage?  Is it possible?

The Traditional style permits intense craftsmanship. It’s possible to find stunning millwork in new Traditional style homes. It’s possible to build a Traditional style house that will find its way into architecture magazines. But the Traditional style is not really the basis for a grand, sprawling mansion that is grand and sprawling for their own sake. At its heart, the Traditional style is comfortable and practical.

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

It is possible to find building plans for Traditional style tiny homes. That doesn’t mean that they will have curb appeal. Including the curves and piping and awnings and gables that make a home look Traditional takes so much space that a small home in this style looks like all embellishment and no house. But building plans for Traditional tiny homes are commercially available. Who is to say your Traditional tiny house could not be an architectural gem with substantial modifications to the plans?

Can Traditional style floor plans be open concept?

For a Traditional home to be, well, Traditional, a closed concept is favored. Most Traditional homes have walls separating living and dining areas and the kitchen. More and more contemporary Traditional homes, however, are being planned with open-concept kitchens that provide a line of sight for watchful parents and hosts. 

It’s hard to do interior decorating for an open-concept Traditional home. One of the basic principles in a Traditional home is that everything matches, so open areas have to be decorated in a single style. In a closed-concept Traditional home, everything has to match in a room, not necessarily over a large living space.

What are popular Traditional style exterior colors?

Traditional style colors are “subdued” inside and out. You would never find a neon-purple Traditional house with pink flamingos on the lawn.

The front door ordinarily would be natural wood with rich, dark tones, with windows on either side.

Can Traditional style homes be built on a sloping lot?

The construction of a Traditional home on a sloping lot would require the involvement of engineers and a lengthy permit process.

How many floors/stories does Traditional style usually have?

Traditional style houses have one or two stories, but the style doesn’t really work with three or more floors (unless you count attic space). 

Do Traditional style houses have a basement?

Any Traditional style house can have a basement, if soil and site conditions permit. There is nothing about a basement that clashes with Traditional style, although building plans do not usually include basements.

Rustic interiors don’t work with Traditional style. Traditional style calls for crown molding, cornices, coffered ceilings, columns, wood paneling, and built-in cabinets. Traditional house interiors beg for upholstery with complex patterns, such as chinoiserie prints, damasks, florals, paisleys, muted stripes, and toile. They need rich wood tones and metals. And every Traditional house needs window treatments.
