Bungalows vary in style


The bungalow is a popular architecture style around the country but its look may vary. Regional styles of bungalows prevail across the country. In fact, it’s one of the few architectural trends that spread from the West coast to the East coast, says John Brinkmann, publisher of American Bungalow Magazine.

But there is some variety in style. For example, Midwestern bungalows often have a foyer and a coat closet, but don’t have sleeping porches, explains M. Caren Connolly, who co-wrote Bungalows: Design Ideas for Renovating, Remodeling, and Building New (Taunton Press, 2006). (That’s a typical feature for bungalows built in the South or in California.)

On the other hand, California bungalows often lacked closets, and its’ owners would relocate their refrigerator to the garage. But because of a lack of central heating, fireplaces abound in California bungalows.

In Long Beach, Calif., Steffie Hands, who specializes in selling bungalows, frequently lists these three bungalow styles: Craftsman, Spanish-style (smooth, stucco exterior; Mediterranean-tile roof; and iron or Spanish-style fixtures) and California.
