Bungalows can typically be identified by their single story and spacious design. The use of a veranda, or large, open yet covered porch, is another significant identifying feature.

California bungalows are almost always single story. Usually equipped with large pillars supporting a veranda. Often this is complemented with a brick chimney on a low pitch roof and tied together with a gable.
