Victorian house plans tend to be large and irregular, featuring a multitude of bays and roof elements at varying heights. One or more porches provide quiet places to sit and visit with the neighbors. Every opportunity to add decoration is taken, with turned posts and spindles dressing the porch, elaborate brackets and bargeboards under the eaves, and stickwork or shingled patterns on the upper walls. Victorian homes are traditionally painted in exuberant color schemes.
