Give a 1920s craftsman bungalow an elegant appearance by mixing new materials with age. Keep old window frames, fitted wardrobes and wooden floors, for example. The character of the house should be preserved while adding modern appliances, facilities and fresh paint. A bungalow typically has a floor of rooms that flow along with limited aisles or no aisles.
However, some 1920s craftsman bungalow has a second floor, with one or two rooms under a raised roof. Improve the first floor to fit well with the rooms on the second floor by planning updates and colors that blend well on both levels. Look for ways to improve the overall design. Keep in mind that one of the main doors of a bungalow normally opens directly into the living room.
Create a small entrance hall by building a 4-foot partition wall between the living room and the front door. Add a partial wall to separate a kitchen and living room that are fully open to others. Build a bar with stools, leaving the top open of the wall, for example. Updating of walls and windows that make use of features that characterize the 1920s craftsman bungalow. Choose neutral shades of green paint for walls with natural wood moldings, which leave in place, for example.
