The term Mission style is often interchanged with the Craftsman style and the Arts and Crafts style. The Arts and Crafts style is defined by simple, functional, harmonious, hand crafted decorations and design style visible in Craftsman style homes and bungalow style homes, as well as in cottage and tudor homes. The Craftsman style and Mission style were often combined as one style. Craftsman furniture is commonly used in Mission homes. The Mission style follows some of the ideals of the Arts and Crafts movement, particularly with the use of indigenous, natural materials, and handmade items. However, Mission style homes have a distinctive Spanish flair that sets them apart from Craftsman homes.
