Styles of houses vary widely from country to country. And, in many countries, the style of new houses has changed with passing time.

The factors that influence the size and design of houses include climate, social customs, building techniques and materials, fashion, and wealth. Religious beliefs also influence style. For example, houses in some countries of eastern Asia have roofs that curve upwards at the eaves. The people believe that these roofs protect them from evil spirits.
