What Houzz contributors are saying:
Invest in new classics. These days modernizing a Victorian home is more about making it function well while still preserving its character. Homeowners are less interested in creating a stark, modern look in a period property. So look for fittings that reference the period but offer contemporary efficiency. It can be expensive and time consuming to source original, reconditioned pieces from the Victorian period, but newly made versions of traditional designs are widely available. You can find everything from radiators to tiles that are dead ringers for the real thing while offering the benefits of being newly manufactured.
