Use Fypon to Recreate Exterior Trends

Which home design style is your favorite? Arts & Crafts? Mediterranean? Classic? No matter which, Fypon products can help you achieve it.

Arts & Crafts houses resulted from an industrialization movement in England that came to the United States in the 1890s. Defining characteristics include lowpitched, gabled roofs; full- or partial-width porches with roofs supported by tapered columns; extra stickwork in gables and porches; wide overhangs with exposed and elaborate rafter ends; and roof wall junctions with triangular knee braces. Inside, this style includes the popular open floor plan with exposed beams and moulding throughout.

Some key Fypon pieces that can be used to create an Arts & Crafts feel include woodgrain beams, crossheads above windows, interesting baseboards and crown moulding. In combination, these components create a hand-crafted feel.

You can create a classic style, such as Victorian, Georgian or Federal, using a variety of Fypon products, including crossheads with a keystone, dentil moulding, fluted pilasters with plinth blocks, balustrade system, brackets, crossheads, crown moulding and other variations. These styles include strict symmetry and a centered front door with an elaborate crown supported by decorative pillars.

To create a Mediterranean flavor, blend together Spanish, Greek and Italian styles. The homes are known for stucco walls, tile roofs and towers. On the interior, they will feature courtyards, ornate fountains, beams and open floor plans. Fypon can provide timber beams, a variety of corbels and woodgrain shutters to help replicate these elements.
