Those of you who have followed my blog for the past few years know that I’m a sucker for Craftsman and Prairie-influenced homes. I don’t know if it’s nostalgia or if it’s that they are not “same old, same old,” but I love previewing those homes and writing about those two styles.
Prairie vs. Craftsman Styles
The Prairie style of architecture was popular from 1900 to 1920 in the United States. Craftsman style came around that time as well from 1905 to 1930. Those two styles are often confused for one another. There are many similarities. Both can feature a front-gabled roof, wide front porches, and similar door and window patterns and designs. Also, both styles were born in the USA, which might be why I like them so much.
