It's surprisingly not mid-century.

The architecture of a house truly defines how everything looks. From the way rooms are organized to the flow of the space, particular styles can really influence home's aesthetic. Well to get a peek into the preferences of folks across the country, Trulia took a poll of 2,000 Americans over 18 to see what architecture everyone likes best. The top choice? Craftsman homes, with ranch and colonial styles coming in second and third. With low-pitched roofs, porches with thick columns, and built-in features like cabinetry and breakfast nooks, even 52% of mid-century-loving millennials prefer this architectural look.

Although they might be the most popular style out there, craftsman homes are actually reasonably hard to come by. Most of these bungalow houses can be seen in older parts of West Coast cities where the Arts and Crafts movement was popular in the beginning of the 20th century. Ranch, colonial, Cape Cod, mid-century, and Victorian-style homes are most commonly found throughout the U.S. depending on the region. Good thing for folks over 55. A whopping 52% percent of that demographic love ranch-style homes best.
