A Raleigh Craftsman style home can include:
- Simple lines inside and out, with no compromises on quality.
- Stone accents, in particular front porches with stone base and tapered columns.
- Staircases with square/detailed balusters and newell posts instead of more typical round or wrought iron styles.
- Numerous windows, with square or horizontally rectangular windows more common than in typical architecture.
- Limited hallways, space is as open as possible.
- Interior trim that is more rustic, including 1x4, 1x6, and 1x8 treatments in place of the commonly seen types of crown moulding and baseboard.
