Known for tiled roofs, stucco finishes and open courtyards, Mediterranean style homes are typically found in states with warm climates, rich in Spanish history, like Florida and California. The Mediterranean style home is a melting pot of influences from Spain, Italy, Portugal, and other countries along the Mediterranean region of the world.
Hart Homes, a custom home builder in South Florida specializes in Mediterranean style homes that feature terraces, open courtyards, stucco finishes, porticos, balconies, warm colors, and all other elements inspired by lifestyle in the Mediterranean.
The red tiled roofs pay homage to those of Spanish and Mexican missions. They are made from clay pots and bricks, and shaped like half a tube. This intentional shape is designed to help keep the air in the home cool, and to shed water easily. These tiles are also fire-proof. The expert custom home builders at Hart Homes admire this particular style of home, since it’s tiles are heavier than regular shingles, can last for a century or more and are low-maintenance.
Since rain, sunshine and hot temperatures are common in Mediterranean climates, a stucco finish protects the exterior walls from each of the natural elements. Most Mediterranean style homes are found in California and Florida, and both states mimic the climate of the Mediterranean. The colors that are used to achieve the Mediterranean “look” are warm and neutral in tone, with a couple of exceptions like subtle yellows and greens.
