About The Tudor Home Style

Formal living room with high ceilings and a fireplace in a Tudor style house.The Tudor house style focuses on indoor living. Its main purpose is to create a welcoming cave to shelter occupants and keep the cold, damp weather out, which makes sense, given the style originated in the rainy regions of England.

With a steeply pitched roof and dark half timbering, contrasting with walls of stucco, slate, or brick, the Tudor home is one of the most distinctive styles of residential architecture.

Rooms & Living Areas

The main living area is typically focused on the hearth, which is often set back in an Engle nook or chimney corner. Generally, rooms are small, with wood paneled walls from floor to ceiling and low ceilings with decorative beams. The small rooms of the Tudor home create an overall feeling that is very sheltering. With their charming storybook look, the Tudor style is still used in new construction today, and there are many variations.
