Architectural Styles Week 2: Victorian versus Tudor


For the month of January our Wednesday blogs will feature two different home architectural styles.  We will compare the two and then we’ll let you choose which one you’d rather use!


A look at Victorian Architecture:


Victorian homes typically feature intricate details built more for beauty than function.  They are usually two stories with large porches and steep roof pitches. They often feature ornate trim, bright and whimsical colors and decorative railings.  Victorian homes often use bay windows with cozy seating throughout the home.


The interior of a Victorian home is typically complex with rooms scattered about in irregular shapes.

A look at Tudor Architecture:


Tudor homes typically feature steeply pitched, multi-gables roofs and decorative timber framing.  Common materials used include stome, stucco, brick or wood. Windows in tudors are often grouped together and are typically paned.


The interior of a tudor home is typically filled with arched doorways, heavy wooden doors and brown/cream tones.

Both of these architectural styles are unique and specific.  Would you choose either of these?
