A practical guide to renovating and maintaining the decorative architectural features of older houses, in particular those built between 1750 and 1939. After the 1960s and 1970s, when it was fashionable to "modernize" properties by covering over or removing old features, the majority of home-owners are now keen to restore their homes to their original state, not just to add period character but also to increase the value of the property. The book includes information on all styles of period doors, windows, fireplaces, brickwork and flooring; practical advice for those choosing to do the work, or for those wishing to brief a builder; how to create period bathrooms and kitchens and install authentic lighting.
