We all know what the Low Country, Coastal lifestyle brings. Saltwater, Spanish moss, history, and vacation year-round. One question does linger, what is a Lowcountry style home?
Lowcountry style is meant to be practical, and simple. The home should feel like it has evolved over time. Many features of the Lowcountry home were used for very practical purposes like keeping homeowners cooler, and more comfortable in the coastal heat. For example, Tall ceilings and open floor plans are used to keep air flowing and allow the warm air to rise.
Shutters have also long been associated with the dream Lowcountry homes. They were once necessary to control light and ventilation, they provide protection against strong coastal winds as well. Today, they are decorative rather than functional, but they continue to be a staple on many Lowcountry homes.
Another staple of the Lowcountry homes that serves a practical purpose is the use of outdoor porches, or outdoor rooms such as covered porches, screen porches, or sunrooms. They were originally built to shade the home’s interior from the hot and humid coastal sun as well as provide an additional living space during the mild fall and winter seasons.
