craftsman style in tudor home?

jtruax3August 27, 2010

Hey guys,Im in need of some help.I have a brick tudor that was built in the 1930's,and Im wanting to put up craftsman style trim but my question is will it work with my house? Is there a certain type of trim that was used in tudor homes?

Yes it will work with the house, but not as well as pre-war Tudor trim.

The photo shows a sample of Tudor trim. Notice that while the baseboard is deep and solid like a Craftsman house, the window trim is narrow and highly figured -- in this case, reeded. This trim is painted, but it could also be dark-stained oak, walnut, or pine.

Corner blocks and rosettes could be used to simplify installation.

Regards,

I was think of using red oak since the doors are red oak and stained. The style I had in mind was using 1x4 casing with a 1x2 border around it. I don't have a picture saved but I think it's pretty common style. My biggest worry is it looking out of place or standing out in a bad way.

It's your house. If you like it, then it's fine. Go to it.
