The Mediterranean style, designed mainly after homes inItalyandSpain, tend to follow a more open, yet detailed look. These homes are found most often in the sun-belt states, although they can be found throughout the country.
Usually found in two stories, Mediterranean homes tend to have high ceilings, but lower, wider tile roofs; often with a smaller, wide gable and a short, square chimney. Stucco is the common exterior, and is intended to add texture, unlike smoothed stucco; also, there are large outdoor spaces for entertaining. Mediterranean homes look lovely with assorted palms showcasing their unique design.
Centered front doors and large, wide windows are common. There will usually be fewer windows in these homes, but these windows are tall and wide, sometimes with outer shutters. This style home, although not perfectly symmetrical, has more of a symmetrical façade.
The Mediterranean style home is very common among suburbs and fits into most surroundings, despite its intricate detail and design. These homes are very open and provide a lot of room.
