The love of all things traditional and old fashioned is one which is shared by a great many people. Antique collecting swings in and out of fashion fairly regularly, but old fashioned styles never age. Visiting old properties which house antique furnishings and decoration inspires many of us to try and create a similar feel in our own home. Whether your home is old or new, with an eye to detail and a taste for antique, or antique style furnishings, you can effectively create your own old fashioned style of surroundings quite easily. Furnishings, wallpaper, and flooring can all be carefully chosen to create whatever look you are searching for.
There are many traditional periods which are popular in which to style your home, and which work very effectively but also practically. However, whether you are inspired by a Georgian theme, or a Victorian theme, or even an Art Deco theme, the key in creating an effective style is paying attention to small details.
Victorian style became very unfashionable for a great many years when minimalism and simplicity was the fashion of the era. However, in more recent years, many of us have come to love the detail and richness of Victorian decor. The Victorians liked their rooms very decorative and opulent with rich fabrics and patterns. Decorating your room in deep, rich colours and keeping a focus on small details is important. Collecting ornamental clocks, candlesticks, lamps, and other objects of the era and using them to decorate your room will all help in creating a Victorian feel.
Traditional Radiators are a more subtle Victorian feature which are more than often overlooked when decorating a room. Although you may be planning on giving your room a very traditional feel, in this day and age, you are more than likely going to want to keep modern conveniences, including central heating. If you don’t like the idea of fitting your newly decorated period property with modern radiators, then traditional radiators are an excellent option. Cast iron radiators, are beautifully designed in authentic old fashioned styles to fit in perfectly with your home.
Also, a traditional radiator is not only a unique feature, but also a practical and efficient means of heating. You could choose to buy an authentic renovated antique radiator, but if you want a more reliable source of heating, then a brand new, but authentically designed traditional radiator is probably the best option for you.
