Tudor Home Style


Based loosely on early English building traditions, Tudor style homes feature exposed timbers interspersed with stucco.  A preference for asymmetrical design allows different styles of windows to be placed on any side of the home to capture the views outside.

  • Decorative half timbering with stucco or brick infill
  • Asymmetrical door and window compositions with bay and bow windows
  • Common combinations include three equally-sized windows mulled together
  • Art glass with metal caming creates typically diamond grille pattern

Colors & Finishes

Tudor style homes feature deep, warm and dark colors, oftentimes contrasting the walls of white or beige stucco. However, the wall material
does not need to contrast with the windows and doors and can be of similar color value.

Color Combinations

Windows and doors, frames and trim are usually all one color in Tudor style homes to contrast interior and exterior wall colors.  Combinations
should remain within the palette of deep, rich colors.

With half-timber construction, load-bearing timbers were visible from the street and would often serve as the window and door trim
components.  This look can be accomplished in today's Tudor homes with brick mould exterior trim.  

To achieve that authentic Tudor styling, or to create a variance all your own, A-Series products provide a choice of three exterior trim profiles
and three head trim options; with 11 colors to choose from.  For a historically accurate look, our E-Series/Eagle windows and doors are available
with up to 5 1/2" flat trim and comes in 50 exterior colors, custom colors, and anodized finishes.

Hardware for both windows and doors in the Tudor style should be simple, substantial and functional, mimicking the look of iron.

Andersen Yuma hardware is made of solid, forged brass and features a simple, clean design, perfect for the Tudor style.  Encino hardware
delivers the same handle features, with a slightly more ornate contoured escutcheon.
