Characteristics of a Colonial Home

Colonial homes are associated with the colonial period of the United States, drawing their design from the architecture of that time period. They typically feature two or three stories with brick or wood facades. Additionally, the kitchen and living spaces are usually found on the first floor with the bedrooms on the upper floors.

How to Choose Colonial House Colors

When selecting classic colonial exterior house colors, choosing more than one color helps create a color palette that contributes to a cohesive look. We recommend the following: a main exterior color for the majority of the home, an accent color for details and a trim color to complete the style.
