East-coasters used to seeing Bungalows in the inner-ring suburbs might think this kind of house is a cold-climate exclusive. But no, the Bungalow movement began out west, where thousands of homes like this sunny yellow California Bungalow still delight homeowners every day.
A front porch – big enough to sit on and enjoy the view – is one of the classic elements of a Bungalow, and this one’s just the right size for relaxing in the evening California sunshine.
The owners created this sunroom that looks like it would be great for entertaining. We like the natural finish on the wood ceiling, and the exposed beams!
The living room was opened up to the dining room, but they did it without losing any of the authentic Bungalow character. The built-in bookcases flanking the tiled fireplace, with the awning windows above, are classic Bungalow features.
The galley kitchen is narrow, but it’s open – and really doesn’t need to be any bigger. After all, the house is only 1,084 square feet!
A few more views of the main living area from the dining room. Love the built-ins in this sunny yellow California Bungalow!
All of the bedroom kept another great Bungalow feature, the high wainscot. Painting different colors above and below the wainscot is an old design trick that gives the illusion of a taller ceiling!
