Find The Perfect Remodeling Style For You

Not sure what type of style to choose. Take a look at the descriptions below to help you get a feel for the perfect style for you.

Arts and Crafts Style

Arts and Crafts Style Decor's parameters are well defined for specific reasons. Their movement started around the turn of the 20th century as a comeback against the overdone style of the Victorian era. It dismissed the factory-like furnishings and decor that was typical at the time, instead clutching on to organic beauty and traditional handiwork. Gustav Stickley (the Artisan who started the term Craftsman, is occasionally used for this style) and William Morris were critical in beginning the Arts and Crafts Style. Their new style replicates much of Frank Lloyd Wright's architectural work.
