We Build Traditional Homes Near You

Traditional homes are an amalgamation of various historical styles, with architectural elements blended to create a cohesive design that is composed, methodical, and conventional. Since the traditional style is a composite style, it’s easy to customize a design that captures your aesthetic. 

Traditional home design is defined by comforting styles and timeless features such as dark woods, crown molding, and wood paneling. Rooms are symmetrical and the floorplans focus on casual living, with every room flowing into the next. It’s all about function and ease. 

As you design your new traditional custom home, you can include columns, gabled windows, coffered ceilings, covered porches, and formal living or dining rooms. The two unmistakable characteristics of traditional homes—functionality and simplicity—are communicated through symmetry and synchronicity throughout the home’s features. The interior design of many traditional homes is inspired by European décor of the 18th and 19th centuries. This timeless style is elegant and classic with understated opulence.  

Choosing to work with a reputable traditional custom home builder ensures that your new property will combine the classic features of a traditional style in a beautiful, cohesive way while being safe and functional. But just because you prefer a traditional home-style, it doesn’t mean you can’t make the style unique. Highland Custom Homes specializes in building traditional custom homes in collaboration with a homeowner to execute their vision.

Our homeowners create a home design by working hand-in-hand with our Utah custom home builders, architects, and designers. 

Together, we blend traditional design with updated features to create a one-of-a-kind home that embodies your personal style.

As an award-winning custom home builder in Utah, we understand how to bring historical architectural elements into your traditional home design. This custom home style fits perfectly into any neighborhood, whether it is an established neighborhood in Alpine, Utah, or a rural lot in Heber. We focus on capturing that traditional spirit with classic home design features like formal living and dining rooms and other historically favored aspects like fireplaces and covered front porches.

With Highland Custom Homes, the sky is truly your limit. We believe that your home should be an extension of your life’s work and the legacy of who you are. That is why we developed a traditional custom home-building process to make your home-building experience as enjoyable as possible. Our team will provide you with an endless number of options, guiding you through every design and build step so that you can create the ultimate dream home.

Do you want your home cozy and functional with a modern touch or a classic two-story home? Whatever you envision, our custom modern home builder has you covered. We can combine several home styles until we capture a design that feels like you through-and-through.  

Our architects and in-house designers will work together to blend all your preferred home design styles into a cohesive, traditional custom home.

In that case, our team will find a layout that brings elements of each style into one unified design.

Since traditional design is your preferred home design, we will let that style rule our home-building choices. Then, we will subtly blend other styles into the traditionally focused design to capture a unique yet sensible design. It may seem like a risk, but it is a challenge our Utah home builders will give you the tools and experience to navigate. Working together, we will elevate the traditional design of your home to bring your vision to life.  

Elements of Custom Traditional Homebuilding

The traditional custom home includes a broad range of home-building styles, each with its own distinct features. By definition, any home design influenced by historic architecture is considered a traditional home. Some traditional custom home builders draw inspiration from various architectural eras, including Victorian, Neoclassical Colonial, or Craftsman.

Homeowners who typically build homes in the traditional style usually enjoy design features rich with historical elements, like antiques, classical art, and symmetry. Traditional home builders often include design components that work harmoniously to create a friendly charm. The result? A welcoming home that provides guests with that “at-home” feeling every time they walk through the door.

If you are interested in building a traditional home, here are a few staples you might include:

Architectural details borrowed from various historical stylesBrick, wood, plaster, stucco, and stone building materials | Large, open porchesOverhead beams and rafters | DormersFormal living and dining rooms | Elegant finishesTall, pointed roof lines | Closed floor plans with single-purpose roomsSymmetrical window layouts | A blend of straight and curved linesMuted, tone-on-tone, or mid-range color palettes | Understated architectureFireplaces and comfort-driven features | An overall cozy ambianceGlossy white trim and molding | Dark wood flooringBalanced furnishings, lighting fixtures, and textiles | Neatly polished, large kitchens that incorporate heavy or distressed wood
