3601 Colonial Home Ideas

Loved for their traditional homey feel or in some cases, their grandiose facades, colonial homes belong to an evergreen style family that have a broad range of sub types. Different groups of colonialists brought their signature styles to America – for instance, Dutch colonial homes reflect the same gambrel roof as you would expect to see in the Netherlands.

Symmetry was important in colonial architecture, though some of the most popular period designs, such as the saltbox design, was distinctive because of its asymmetrical roof line. Saltbox homes were a type of New England colonial architecture, and one of many other colonial architecture, such as the German colonial, with its characteristic thick walls and exposed timber, and French colonial, with their wide galleries.
