Want to find your exterior home style? Are you traditional or contemporary or modern or farmhouse? Here’s a simple quiz to help you determine your style.
This is the home I love.
Not a little love.
The kind of love that makes your heart beat faster and your eyes well up and your insides literally dance with happiness.
I’ve been standing on that front porch waiting for the mailman since stirrup pants and blue eyeshadow ruled my world.
You can read about our house and it’s story here.
And take a before and after tour of the house and see all the changes that have happened over the last year.
I love traditional homes. I love symmetry and columns and molding and front porches with black railings and brick steps and porches and paths.
But here’s the thing.
There are tons of exterior home styles. TONS. There’s modern and contemporary and ranch and farmhouse and colonial and on and on and on. Are you drawn to an exterior style? Is there a type of architecture that makes your heart beat faster?
Here’s a fun quiz to help you find your exterior home style.
I took it, too.
Are you curious as to what I found out?
I was TRADITIONAL.
I was a little nervous.
If I wasn’t traditional, I didn’t know what I was going to do with all those topiaries.
At the bottom of the results, you can see that orange button that says “use the snap and search feature now.”
It is literally one of the most amazing features on the planet if you are looking for homes that fit your exterior home style.
Here’s how it works.
Start with this page.
If you click on the orange button, or go to Homes.com and look for the Snap & Search feature.
Then just click the orange button on the bottom of the screen.
Next, a screen like this pulls up.
It lets you choose.
You can either upload a picture of a home you love or you can search one of their existing photos of different home styles.
I uploaded a home I love.
And just for fun, I searched Lexington, KY to see if there were any other homes that looked like mine—to see if there were any other homes with my exterior home style.
(total aside: Lexington, KY is one of the most beautiful cities on the planet.)
Yes, there were.
Here are some of the traditional homes that looked like mine.
It’s such a fun feature and an amazing way to help you in your home search.
A giant shout out to Homes.com for helping me get the word out.
