Mid-century ranch homes are more popular than ever, and it’s no surprise why! Popularized in the 1950s and 1960s in California by architect Joseph Eichler, mid-century ranch homes are influenced by Scandinavian style and the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright. These homes are often relatively affordable, tucked away in beautiful wooded areas, and feature stunning architecture. Here are just three more reasons to consider a mid-century home:
- Oversized windows. Mid-century ranch homes are known for their sprawling windows (often floor-to-ceiling!) which “bring the outdoors in” and allow for plenty of natural light.
- Chic, modern style. Furnishing a mid-century home is an opportunity to further cultivate your home’s unique aesthetic. We love incorporating Scandinavian accents from Ikea and West Elm.
- Convenience. Not only do mid-century homes offer easy one-floor living, but they’re also known for being exceptionally well-built. The floor plans are typically spacious and feature an open-concept, with high ceilings, and modern kitchens.
