Colonial Style Kitchens, Truly Timeless and Sophisticated

In Colonial architecture, symmetry is a key element. Symmetry can be found everywhere from the arrangement of windows and doors to the placement of the furniture in the room. 


A Colonial-style kitchen is a perfect choice for anyone who wants a stylish, timeless room that is sure to impress. These kitchens are a classic choice that will never go out of style, and they create a look that is truly elegant and sophisticated. 


Let’s see what you need for a Colonial-style kitchen.



Get to know the style

Before you start doing anything, make sure you educate yourself first. Colonial-style kitchens take us back to the time of Colonial America. Colonial-style kitchens were first seen in America as early as 1710, but they continued to become more and more popular in the 1700s and 1800s. The Colonial-style kitchens have a simple, yet elegant design that can still be seen in modern homes today. One of the reasons that Colonial-style kitchens are so popular is because they are very versatile. They can be used in both traditional and modern homes without looking out of place. Colonial-style kitchens are also very functional. And that’s why Shaker cabinets are the perfect choice for this style.



Find your why

The colonial-style kitchen design does offer something more than many homeowners are looking for these days – a true sense of history that can’t be replicated anywhere else. Colonial kitchens give you a glimpse into American history, while still keeping the integrity of modern-day living.


Colonial kitchens offer an amazing sense of history that homeowners desire in their own space. A kitchen is a place where families gather for meals and conversations, so its place in history has become just as important as any other room in the house. 


Many people find this type of design alluring because it offers simplicity, practicality and timelessness – which is what many homeowners long for today. Colonial-style homes were domestically built (as opposed to by architects). They didn’t look like modern-day homes do now, but rather were built with materials closest to home (i.e.: brick or wood) and they followed stricter building codes than what we have now.

Since the Colonial era spanned over 150 years (and was divided into four distinct periods), these kitchen designs can vary greatly from one another depending on which period they represent.


Colonial-style homes are known for their simple, yet elegant design without being overly ornate or complicated. Colonial-style kitchens have a similar feel. The cabinets are usually shaker-style with simple lines, this allows them to be easily updated when needed by simply sanding and painting the cabinets.
