Also known as rambler style homes, they first became popular around the 1950s. The home style features a one story, L, U, or rectangular-shaped design with a garage. It’s typically spread out across the lot and it features an open floor plan for its interior. This style is versatile and you can use design elements or window types from other home styles without a problem. Traditional Ranch windows have a muted and sophisticated earthy color palette. Go for green or dark brown for the exterior and dark stained wood for the interior.
This style emerged from the Arts and Crafts movement of the early 20th century. It is characterized by a mixture of materials like siding, shingles, and brick, along with shallow pitched roofs and exposed rafter tails. Formal Craftsman style homes have a symmetrical window composition, while informal style homes have an asymmetrical composition. For this style, we recommend double-hung windows with a stained interior for your replacement windows in Bellevue. Casement windows are also common. Craftsman style windows have a vertical proportion and have no horizontal grilles.

Its essential style elements include simple detailing, one-and-a-half to two stories, an open floor plan with a central chimney, and intersecting gable roofs.
