Colonial Style Homes
In order to truly appreciate the colonial style, it’s important to learn some history on it. Did you know, technically, a house built later than the 1700s is not, in fact, a Colonial? Rather, these homes are classified as Colonial Revival or Neo-colonial. During the 1700s, early settlers in North America incorporated the architectural styles of their native countries into their new homes. The styles that arose include Georgian Colonial, Spanish Colonial, German Colonial, French Colonial, and Dutch Colonial. The first floor of the classic Colonial floor plan includes the kitchen and family room. The second floor consists of the bedrooms. Typically, colonial homes were built with central chimneys and multiple flues, so fires could be lit in two or more rooms on each floor. Front doors are often centrally located with evenly spaced double-hung windows and side-gabled roof.
