Traditional cottages have a compact footprint, but elements of this style can be applied to larger residences. Signature design elements include rounded turrets, windows, doors and doorway openings. Built-in amenities such as window seats add to the cottage feel. Exterior design elements might include paned windows, cedar shake siding, bead board paneling, exposed fieldstone and trim pieces such as flower boxes or shutters. Multi-hued exterior finishes complete the look.
